Paddleboarding and Fishies
|Looking for sea creatures|
|Early morning on the dock at|
|I'd make such a great Dockmaster|
|Please can we feed the fishies?|
Then we went back to Lazy Dog where we all went paddleboarding -- even Daddy-Dog! And he only fell off once! Afterwards, we went to back Geiger Key Fish Camp Restaurant for lunch.
|This old fellow is a regular at Geiger Key|
After all that excitement, I needed a nap back at the hotel room.
Later we took a walk to the waterfront where we fed the fishies and then went to Schooner Wharf for drinks.
|We're a LONG way from home|
|Sponge Creature didn't scare me one bit|
And of course we couldn't miss Sunset . . .
I slept very well after all this activity.
|The Westin Heavenly Dog Bed|
was a little bit small for me,
but it made a totally awesome pillow
Day 10 - Key West:Mom and I saw a great egret hanging out at Mallory Square during our early morning walkie. One of the things mom loves about the Keys is that there are lots of egrets and ibises. On our way back we walked by the Mel Fisher museum where I checked out the cannons and we saw a lady pirate!
|I wanna' be a pirate!|
|Ready, aim, FIRE!|
|Perhaps it's clogged?|
|Posing in front of the anchors of the Atocha|
and the Santa Margarita. These ships both
went down in a storm a long, long, long time ago
but Mel Fisher found them -- along with lots of treasure!
Later, when we were having breakfast on a bench at the Westin marina, a very nice lady from the Fury Surf Shop came out to us and told us she had just put out a big bowl of water for me. The water was fresh and cool and she was VERY nice to me!!! We think Key West people are the nicest people around!
That night we had dinner at the Island Dogs Bar. We had a very nice waiter who brought me my drink in a souvenir cup! He said he had an Anatolian shepherd that paddleboards with him, but only stays on the board a little while, then jumps off and swims along side him. We can't imagine a dog that size paddleboarding, but he said he was only a puppy, so only about 80 pounds.
We met two very nice women at the Island Dogs Bar. They were sisters and had been coming to Key West together for years. They complimented me on my looks and behavior and mom said one of the reasons we love Key West is that it is so dog-friendly. One of the sisters smiled and said, "and it's so people-friendly." Yep, we like that too.
|Of course I'm old enough to drink|
(My version of a Malibu Punch is straight H2O)
|Ready to call it a night|
