A effort is under way to sink another large ship off of Key West as an artificial reef and dive attraction. Parrot Heads in Paradise has donated money to this effort and in return for support, has a new ‘Parrot Head Underwater club house‘ designated on the ship. It should be ‘on the bottom’ in a year or so. All you Parrot Head divers – I’ll meet you at the club house! More info: http://www.bigshipwrecks.com
Coincidence or not? You be the judge!
Ex-President Bill Clinton arrives on Martha’s Vineyard today just as word comes that ex-“Baywatch” babe Pamela Anderson Lucy Vincent Beach …
And the aforementioned Jordan reportedly is hosting a $10,000-a-head Democratic National Committee fund-raiser featuring America’s Favorite Freeloaders on Saturday night. At that price, we hope that Jimmy Buffett, who is sailing around The Rock, sings!
The “Boats, Beaches, Bars, & Ballads” box set has been certified quadruple (4x) platinum by RIAA. Read more on it at Margaritaville.com.
The article also goes on to say … Next up for Buffett are more summer tour dates, followed by a new CD, “Far Side Of The World, coming out in October, 2001,and a new book, a collection of short stories, some true, some not, is scheduled for release in 2002.
Sail Magazine’s August 2001 issue has an article about sailing the Florida panhandle. The article mentions Buffett several times: “This is the Old South, graceful and unhurried, enlivened by a Jimmy Buffett soundtrack and mellowed by the lack of pretension. Boiled peanuts, key lime pie, barbequed chicken, cold beer, and tie-dyed sunsets are part of every day life…along the sugar-white sand beaches.” In another section: “…a vital provision must be brought aboard before our departure. Smiling he hands us a Jimmy Buffett CD. ‘You can’t go sailing around here without this’, he says; and it turns out he’s right; every time we get near a port, strains of ‘Margaritaville’ and ‘Changes in Latitude’ waft across the water.” I lived in Panama City for 8 years and imagine I’ll return there. The sailing is great and it’s never hard to run into a chum with a bittle of rum and kick back and enjoy pickin’ a little Buffett tunes!— Ray B., Atlanta,GA
