Vacation to Key West enjoyable, a break from Obama

Published: Wednesday, July 16, 2014 at 03:09 PM.

Key West is looming large in our future. We’re soon heading there to meet daughter Sundae, son in-law Shingo and grandchild Bug, who are flying in from Tokyo and are so looking forward to their visit.

We’ve been to the Keys many times, yet I still can’t explain precisely why I enjoy the place so much. I’m not much of a drinker and my late-night partying days are distant memories, yet it’s one of our favorite destinations. Go figure.

This vacation break couldn’t come at a better time. I don’t think they pipe the news that far down, so I should have some shelter from Obama’s psycho-idiocy, at least for a few days.

What on earth were we thinking keeping this guy around for another four years? He gets a crazy look on his face when he raises his phone and pen. I expect him to lean into the camera and whisper, “I see clueless people.”

In that “spooky” vein, this trip we’ll probably do the “Old Town Ghost Tour” again. It’s about as hokey as you can get, but I guess I must like wandering around in the dark looking for things that aren’t there.

Also, I never get tired of the Mel Fisher museum, so we’ll certainly hit that place again. I’m sure they’ll “hit” me back when I buy my wife Ann a little bauble from their gift shop.

We’ll break new trail by going to Robbie’s at Islamorada to feed the tarpon and have dinner. It looks like a great restaurant based on their website menu.
