There is a very different feel to Key West after the threat of a hurricane
Of course there's lots of clean-up
Alot of moving of cars back home after the eternal scramble of trying to find "higher ground" in a town that's highest point above sea level is 18 feet... And taking all the stuff back outside after bringing it inside...
The sand has to be pushed back where it belongs...or where WE think it belongs...
From the strong winds pushing it.
But the best part is the feeling of "playing hookey". The day after a storm passes, everyone is ready to get out of the house and experience what the storm has brought us, which is mostly wind, and waves
People are playing on White St. Pier, and the Kite Boarders are putting on a show
And the surfers come out
We were all cheering this kid on, though I don't think they could hear us because of the wind...Great Job! Everytime this tiny kid made it all the way to the beach everyone was smiling...
I love how in this picture everyone just ignored the signs, they didn't even slow down. The gentleman facing the camera looked a little confused. Like he doesn't live here (rental scooter) and can't figure out what is wrong with us...love it!
And I think they can move this truck now...
