Hemingway and His Beloved Fishing Yacht "Pilar"

     I visited the soon to be opened Hemingway Rum Company Distillery in Key West on Thursday, and seeing all of the Hemingway memorabilia, reminded me of seeing some very old pictures of Pilar and the boat itself while I was in Cuba.   Visiting Cohimar and San Francisco de Paula gave me an opportunity to see Pilar and all of the places that Hemingway spent time on his beloved fishing boat.

  1. No one writes more consistently about the special "coolness" that is Key West than Bahama Bob Leonard. He captures the rum-fueled, all-forgiving special crazy that draws all of us there, whether in the flesh or in spirit. I'm fortunate to have sat in his bar.
