I am definitely in mañana mode lately or Key West time. Taking it easy. Enjoying the views. Here are some photos of a few things we have seen in the last week.
Sigsbee NAS has placed a few of these over-sized adirondack chairs around the base. Getting into the chair was easy...getting out was a whole other experience. Surprisingly, it was quite comfortable to sit in. And....Yes, I do feel like 'Edith Ann'. For the young ones that have no idea what I am talking about - Edith Ann was a character played by Lily Tomlin on "Laugh-In" - a comedy show from the late 60s to early 70s.
the Pelicans and the bigger birds such as Herons or Egrets have not migrated south. Something to look forward to along with a warmer winter.
Doesn't this look inviting? Shall I sit or swim? The water feels warmer than the air at times. Floating around is very relaxing and the best part - my skin doesn't feel salty or dried out afterward.
Chickens are a big part of Key West's charm. They are everywhere...on the streets, at the Post Office, in front yards, and under your feet at restaurants. We even have a few chickens and roosters on base.
Mama Hen and her chicks were following us down the sidewalk in the Truman Annex. I got the feeling that the chickens can tell that we are a soft touch. They must have that same sixth sense as do the feral cats - I know you want to feed us.

Ahhh, another gorgeous sunset. I'm sure there will be more to come...
In the meantime, I need to find some energy and get some sewing done. My little shop is looking rather empty.
