Key West, Cayman Island Celebrity Cruise

 Excellent Key West free trolley tour with Mona G. (left), formerly employee of State Attorney Office.  Gentrification has taken a toll on this formerly gay enclave and outpost of normalcy.  Excellent conch chowder at Red and Blue Fish near Mallory Square.

MIKE CANPANALD was aboard the Celebrity Silhouette ship and enjoyed the tour of the galley.  Mike was the singer and bass player in Capitol Records rock group What Four.  He keeps in touch with some of the players.  He also was thermal engineer in Burbank and is an audiophile.

EXECUTIVE SOUS CHEF Jeff gave us a tour of the Silhouette Galley on Saturday, the last full day of the Caribbean cruise.

Pier 66 Hotel in Fort Lauderdale is where I spent the night before the cruise.  Service in the lobby restaurant not good and mechanics had to replace a faulty door lock in my room which was cold.  This resort includes a marina.
