Goombay 2010

Goombay is this weekend. It kicks off the 2 weeks of festivities for Fantasy Fest. Its a favorite local event and I went with my friend Mindy last night, it has become a tradition. We drink some cocktails and eat conch and people watch. There seemed to be plenty of pork this year.
Lots of interesting food booths.

It was a beautiful evening with lower humidity and nice skies.

Crispy cracked conch
Lots of vendors

Dog friends
As the sun set it got busier and more people showed up.
I took a picture of this house last year in thoughts I would paint it so its back on my list.
Full moon over Key West.

Thursday painting

Thursday's Painting group has started up again for the season. It was great to see folks and we did a lot of painting and a lot of talking. The weather was almost cool and the wind was blowing but we painted Key Limes. I finished this up in my backyard later in the afternoon.
