Sugarloaf Key FL

John and Larry are crazy fishing fools. It’s another cold and windy morning. Damp but no rain. They were out fishing again. They did catch their limit and some nice size Mangroves. Now John is in the kitchen making fish dip. I had a great day of harmonica and ukulele practice. Time to regroup and head to the clubhouse for our weekly Potluck and Jokers. Tonight Caroline made meatloaf and it was great. As always lots of food. We had 3 games of 9 person jokers. Greg, Dale, Maddie, Jim, Caroline, Ben, Char, John and I. George came and sat in a few hands.

It’s a cold morning in the keys. Windy and 59 degrees. John and Larry were out fishing at 6am. I slept in until 8am and when I got up it was drizzling. They got back shortly after that with their limit. Peggy needed help assessing her rig that was in the hurricane, so we picked up Larry and her and headed to check it out. It took a while and now she has to contact the insurance. It’s still cold, drizzle and windy. I so bad want to go to Looe Key for Jam Night, but it’s cold, rainy and windy. The roof is still missing and there’s no wind tarps to stop the wind and rain. So we decided to stay home, order pizza and watch tv.

Today when the boys were fishing, John got 8 mangroves and 2 were up to 18 inches. We took a nice walk out to the Bow Channel Bridge.

Tonight is Jam Night and Taco Tuesday at Looe Key Tiki Bar. Marc is still sick so Tony was holding down the stage. Chicago Sandy got to jam with Mike S, Glen, Steve, Kenny and Tony. Bobby and Jim was there with their Ukuleles. We had Craig, Debi, Linda, Martin, Maddie, Gary, Delis in our group.

John and Larry fishing this morning. With the cooler temps the water is cooler and the fish were biting. They brought home 9 nice mangrove snappers. However, they had shark, tarpon, grouper they threw back.

Tonight is the Lighted Boat Parade in Key West. We picked Linda and Sally then met up with Paul and Cyndie at the Conch Republic Seafood Restaurant for drinks and appetizers. Key West is decorated so nice for Christmas.

We walked along the wharf to the Galleon Resort where we like to watch the parade from. Perfect timing. We found some chairs right in front, got some cocktails and enjoyed the beautifully decorated boats. CW Colt and Laurie showed up and we had a great evening. Now it’s time to head home.
