We spent another fun day in Key West and I have a shopping tip for you! Do you like Lily Pulitzer clothes?
When in Key West, be sure to visit “Key West Handprint” on Simonton Street. Looks just like Lily but is made in Key West and a $90 skirt you can get for $15. It’s so awesome we shopped there 2 days in a row.
Speaking of interesting people you meet along the way, we met Dink Bruce and Sir Peter Anderson , some friends of Debra and Kevins. Dink is 5th generation Key West and Peter is officially Secretary General of the Conch Republic. Dink’s father was personal assistant to the old man himself, Papa Hemingway. Dink has lots of Ernest memorabilia and is currently working on a book based on some of Hemingway’s ship logs from the “Pilar” (Hemingways’ boat). Dink gave Brad a “Pilar’ ball cap that he is quite proud of! Dink also gave us a copy of a CD he produced called “Cuban Chugs”! It shows the homemade boats and skiffs that Cubans have risked their lives in to get to the Freedom and Opportunity that our country offers. They abandon them along the beaches. It’s very moving. Got to give a “shout out” today to Amy, the bartender at “Blue Heaven” who got all her great training at “Dick’s Last Resort”! Got to love a bartender with an attitude!!!! We will be cruising tomorrow back to Marathon.
