Sunny Saturday: Sea & Boats

Some more pics of sun-soaked Key West, if you can bear it…

The island in the background is Sunset Key, which Oprah Winfrey rented to celebrate her 50th birthday.

    OK, I’ve left comments around the blogosphere this morning with varying degrees of whiny references to how bad the weather is here. And now you’re forcing me to leave yet another.

    It’s lovely to view those pics, but I sit here under the threat of yet another snowstorm which promises to deliver 7-13″ inches of snow. Over the base of about 10″ we already have.

    Where we showed excellent foresight in planning this winter to be in Mexico, and amazing bad luck in having all the ridiculous setbacks which have prevented the execution of said plan.

      If it’s any consolation, it’s raining here in Spain. In fact, it’s the rainiest winter on record. Just took my washing back in, which is now wetter than it was before I hung it out. Ahrgh.

      OK, I realise that this in no way compares with an imminent blizzard….

        Well, that sucks if you don’t have a dryer. F dries his laundry in a jaula on the roof. And rain on nearly-dry laundry has happened more than once. One of my proposed projects before we broke up was to attach some semi-transparent, corrugated fiberglass over his jaula to solve this problem. But it remains there with lots of company in the undone project list. And given the state of our (non) relationship now, it’ll likely remain undone forever.

        Central Spain, usually, is as dry as a nun’s nasty. I’ve never missed having a dryer. Until now!

        Hmmmm…. I see you’ve got some leverage to be deployed strategically…
