Re-exploring your town - March 2018 - Tennessee Williams Museum

Key West has always attracted lots of interesting people (after all - I’m here) but Tennessee Williams is one of the very most interesting.    

He spent many years here and wrote lots of interesting plays.    

Listing of plays.

Anytime you can add a doll house to a museum, I’m happy.   This was a lovely house.

I have a long list of ‘must see’ plays now and will try to find them on Netflix or Amazon.    I’m sure I can find most.

Re-exploring your town - The Aquarium - February 2018

My question this month “ Is the aquarium a museum?”.   Don’t know but we are treating it as a museum.   I like aquariums and hadn’t been to this one for about 18 - 19 years.    It was a great outing!!!

This poor turtle lost his front (fin, arm - I don’t know what it is called) and had to have a plastic one made to replace it.   Amazing what they can do.

The aquarium was great fun!!!!    I hope not to let so many years go by before going again.

When was the last time you were at an aquarium and where????

Re-exploring your town - The Oldest House - January 2018

I’m always thinking about the next stop on the “re-exploring your town” trips and one morning while having breakfast on Duval, I saw the “oldest house”.   It is very close to The Grand Cafe ( a great place for lunch or dinner) and I asked Margaret if she was interested.   She was.   It is a lovely old house filled with great things.   My favorite place is the yard.   Very well maintained and an interesting place to sit down and just enjoy the site.

I love this high chair.   

Mario Sanchez, a great Key West Artist, did amazing work.   Below is the sketch he did on grocery sacks before starting his carving.   Really lovely art.

I’d like to hear from you about our re-exploring Key West outings.   If you’re familiar with Key West, your suggestions are also welcome.
