A Taste of Art in Key West
I met visitors from Novia Scotia, the outer banks of North Carolina, and many from Key West including the former mayor and his wife on their way to a benefit. Two local men spent some time choosing necklaces for each of their sisters, (one of which was there) and that was also relaxed and fun! To prepare for the show along with designing lots of new jewelry I spent an afternoon walking Duval Street inviting shop and gallery owners to stop by. I seem to never have enough time to just wander around and there are always new shops, galleries or restaurants to check out.
Key West is a very different place during the day then at night time. I love both but appreciate the striking difference of a daytime stroll in the sunshine in and out of shops and a delicious seaside lunch or a grilled sandwich on Duval and the more carnival type evening atmosphere of live music of a different type in every place you pass by. I always seem to leave Key West looking forward to my next time!
