Key West - Our Sunset Disappears

There goes the neighborhood! What sunset?
Today was another day. We took the bus to Winn Dixie. It was a nice ride but the store was crowded. So I had fun maneuvering around old people and dodging different stands. But it was a good day all in all. I got a model to work on from my aunt. It was an oak wood module of the bat mobile. I painted it and went to the dog park to wait for it to dry. When we got back from the dog park I painted a second layer on the car. I am going to put the reflecting paint on tomorrow. At the dog park I got to run Hoolie all I wanted. But I had an eerie feeling that someone was watching me. But all in all it was a good day. That’s all I got for you.   

Our susset disappeared today. A huge, 161 ft ship took the dock directly between us and our sunset. On the other hand, there have been no sunsets anyway what with all the clouds. Fortunately, they will be gone by the weekend.

The local Winn Dixie is really a nice store, much better than Publix
Meanwhile, we took the local Key West bus to Winn Dixie and back. The schedules are very convenient. We left at 11:00 and returned to our boat around 12:15. You have to be quick about your shopping but there's no wasted time waiting for a bus. The cost for seniors is only $0.50 one way. With the return of the high winds, there was no windjammer activity today and no charters went out either. All the bad weather is supposed to end on Friday with good days ahead after that.

We have a week until the first of our visitors from the frozen north arrive, Finn's parents and their son Rowan. We typically spend about 4 to 5 hours a day with Finn on homeschooling. I will scan in his geometry test tomorrow. It's typical of what I remember taking in high school, not easy! Wait until you see the test!
