Melbourne Beach FL – 06May18

This afternoon, we headed to Sebastian to Earls Hideaway Lounge to see a well know harmonica player Jason Ricci and his band “The Bad Kind”. Last year we saw him and the band at the Green Parrot in Key West. We found a couple seats under a tiki hut which worked out perfect. We had shade, but also sheltered us from the off and on rain showers.

Melbourne Beach FL – 03May18

Nice morning. We had coffee overlooking the park out the the inter-coastal. We took a walk and now did some future park research. Time to explore. We headed south to a nice beach area. I got some sun and started a new book. John was off on a 4 mile beach walk. Now we moved North to Sebastian Inlet State Park. We took a walk out on the fishing pier and watched some surfers in the high waves. On the bay side we found our beach area and got a few more rays and did some reading. Time to head back and regroup.

Chicago Sandy is hoping to jam tonight. We stopped first at Lou’s Blues. A bar/tiki hut on the beach. We had a couple cocktails and checked out the stage and how the open jam works for next Tuesday night. Now on to Squid Lips across the causeway on the mainland. We got there as musicians were setting up. Tonight is open mic night. It worked out great. John is the host and pretty much everyone plays at the same time. Wasn’t sure how that worked out but it did. We met a lot of good musicians and Chicago Sandy got to really jam out. I got a job offer as harmonica player in a local band. But had to decline. This was a cool jam. At one point there was 15 people playing at once. Multiple singers, guitarist, percussion, trombone, keyboard, sax, trumpet, drums, bass and harmonica. It was a fun time and we would definitely recommend it.

 

Sugarloaf Key FL

A little overcast but perfect temperature 79, humidity 79 with a lite breeze. We took our lake walk and visited with the few people remaining. We are doing more departure projects. Richard drove Linda, John and I to Looe Key to party with Haywire tonight. We had a good group, Richard, Linda, Joy, Douglas, Steve, Sue, Debbie, plus other keys friends. We did lots of dancing and had lots of fun.

Sugarloaf Key FL

After our morning coffee and newspaper looking out over our nature window. We did a nice 1 ¾ walk. Along the way Monroe County was almost done disposing of the Irma destroyed RV’s. Our friend Angie is doing her first skydiving today at Sugarloaf Airport. Linda, Debi and I went to watch and cheer her on. Now time to regroup and head to Tonio’s Tiki to see Moose. Linda, John and I were there and Chicago Sandy was invited up to play quite a few songs with Moose.
