We all slept in, even me, finally rolling out to brunch just a shade south of 1 p.m. Cindy found a place with incredible atmosphere, Blue Heaven.
This wasn't immediately evident as we went inside the building, ignoring the sign that clearly stated the entrance was around the corner.
We sat down in an almost empty room with a few guys at a bar watching football, not American football, what we in the States call soccer.
Not only was the weather perfect, the shade dappled and live music in the background, but we were joined by......
chicks, chickens and roosters.
The roosters started up their own version of Dueling Banjos.
The brunch cocktails left a little to be desired, the food was only a bit above average, but again I must reiterate about the amazing atmosophere and vibe, and there was also the amazing desert, Key Lime pie with an over-the-top merenque.
Relaxing, No Seriously This Time
One of our favorite home-school families had relocated to Key West, so Skye would get to be with friends at Christmas after all, how crazy is that?
So she went to the movies and Cindy and I went back to just relax at The Banyan.
There were several really good street performers, working the crowds and trashing their voices, all the while doing some amazing tricks and stunts.
And then there was this guy.
Actually I saw a stocking in the first store I walked into, but it was a bland, just regular sort of stocking so I kept going looking for something special.
But the clock was ticking and Skye was being dropped off along and we were meeting one of my favorite park-day compadres for dinner, so I retraced my steps trying to find that first store, which convieniantly and ironically enough was right across from our dinner rendevous.
Again might be better to refer to one of my fb comments,
Jon Danniells Also the family agreed not to get each other presents and now we're off to go shopping among a bunch of drunk tourists on one of the tackiest streets in the lower 48 because of course we're not going to not give each other presents
I did find a more unique stocking, one with Sloppy Joe's Key West embroidered on it.
A lot of Key Lime tasties, pirate themes and Hemingway/Papa sort of stuff would find their way into our stockings and under our "tree".
