Summer Doldrums Slowly Disappearing

     The slowness of summer finally hit the Keys a couple of weeks ago and thankfully the don't seem to be staying around this year.     Traditionally the summer is the time where everyone stays up North and enjoys the summer weather close to their homes, but this year Key West has become the destination of choice for a lot of people.     I have to say that this is good both from the point of my sanity during bar hours and it has provided me with a lot of story ideas for the blog.     Today is one of my days off and I will more than likely head out into the mangrove keys somewhere with my camera in hand and just relax and take in the scenery as I cruise.     This is usually a pretty good source for a story or two also.     I can't begin to tell you how much these trips do for my personal peace of mind.    The are a great mouthwash for my brain during these slow times here in the Keys.

     We have a Conched in Key West Bar Crawl this Saturday that I'm going to be behind the bar at the Speakeasy Inn's Rum Bar to host the crawlers with a very special Rum Punch.      This event's proceeds go to helping the families at Naval Air Station Key West.     I'll be looking forward to seeing those of you that will be stopping by the Rum Bar during the crawl.

     Things are looking positive for a great fall in Key West, so you might want to put it in your plans for a fall quickie vacation to America's drive-in tropical islands.    I'm looking forward to meeting all of you when you arrive here for some real fun.   ;o)
