Hey, welcome home!

Here's one of the tacky cruise ships from the top of the Key West Lighthouse. What a nice boat ride we had across the Gulf.

Not sure I'd want to walk on that pier. Maybe I just didn't look close enough.


Hmmm....are they helping?????? Can't decide. Show me more!!!!!! :lol: :lol:

Bit of fishing done off of this pier: Huntington Beach. Saw someone pull a small ray up.....saw a pod of dolphins feeding in the surf.....saw a seal/sea lion pop his head up while I was there as well.
