I can definitely feel the change in the air. And, of course, the cold front from the north bringing cooler winds adds to the feeling as well. Campsites seem to be changing daily with many people moving to dry camp on Trombo while new rigs are showing up to replace the empty sites. We have had three different neighbors in one week. We are also seeing a different variety of birds recently. We were happy to see a few pelicans hanging around the base marina this past week. Hopefully, more will show up soon. They were a lot of fun to watch the last time we were here.
There is also the feeling of anticipation for the upcoming fall festivals in the downtown area. We look forward to the pet and owner masquerade and for our son's visit. We plan to show him all the sights we have enjoyed in the past.
Here are a few more photos from what we have done in the last couple of weeks:
We visited the Key West Wildlife Center. We were greeted at the front entrance by these two unlikely companions.
South Florida encourages people to fish for this guy. Apparently, this alien Lion fish has become invasive and a danger to the living reefs. It's too bad that owners felt a need to toss their beautiful pets into the local waters instead of finding them a new home.
When we leave our car, we get to walk through the Truman Annex neighborhood. I love looking at the homes and their front yards as we pass by. It is such a peaceful area that it is hard to believe they are only a few minutes walk from the downtown area.

On The Cutting Board
My needle has been smokin' from all the sewing I have been doing lately. I finished quite a few mug rugs for the holiday season.
I plan to list Santa and reindeer sometime this week
Now, I need to decide on borders. I plan to make four different sized pillow covers, so each block will have a different border or at least that is my plan for now. This will be quite a challenge for me to make the right size pillow cover. Time to do some research!
