After 2 and 1/2 months my wonderful wife, Claudia, and I were reunited last night when she arrived in Key West. Now 2 and 1/2 months apart may not seem like a long time, but when you have been with someone almost 50 years it can seem like a lifetime. I'm so glad she is here to spend the next two months in Key West.

Rainy and overcast for much of the day. Did manage to get in a long walk early this morning before the rain and get some interesting photos. An early morning lone fisherman on the Gulf side of the island. A coral fence surrounding a home...the green spots in the picture are grass through holes in the fence wall. Finally, Fire Station # 3, built in 1907 and manned by 12 paid firemen and 200 volunteers. It was believed to be the oldest active fire station in Florida when it was closed in 1998. Fires were fought with horse drawn steamers and hose carriages until 1914 when the department received motorized fire engines. Today it serves as a museum.

My daughter and her family arrive tomorrow...the house is starting to fill up!!!
