Manatee Show on KCB A family swam up to the dock at Sunset Beach Condos next door, and once Doris called everyone over here, we all went over to see the show. So cute! Such entertainers! They played in the hose spray, floated on their backs, and the baby tried to eat from the chum bag. So very, very cute! There were three in the family, baby swam close to mom, and the third member may have been a teenager. He/she seemed smaller that the mom. They seemed to be so happy to be around, they stayed over there for most of the day. Just one more family having a great time at Key Colony Beach.

Where ever you are, whoever you're with...we all have one thing in common, we are thankful for family and friends.

Those Buckeyes sure know how to throw a tailgate party! The deck was the place to be if you wanted to do a little partying before the big game today. Shrimp, dogs, dips, adult beverages and buckeye cookies, who would want anything more? We had a few cheers, and an Ohio State song or two. We had a baby Buckeye, mama and papa Buckeye and lots of grandma and grandpa Buckeyes, and there were a few Wolverines in attendance, just to round it out. The bets have been made, everyone is back in their condo watching the game, can OSU hold on to that lead? We'll see. May the best team win, and hopefully they will be wearing maize and blue.

She's back, and she brought her man with her! She brought hugs for everyone and loving tales of little Naomi and the Jersey grand girls. She's all unpacked and ready to catch a yellowtail or two, party on the deck, pizza on Friday night, and get a visit now and then from her kids and grandkids.

What's Up? Are they digging for gold? Has anyone else here been startled by the sound of what seems like an exploding toilet in their condo? They've been digging all day, and have succeeded in totally closing down the main drive into The Cay. At first I thought it was a one day project,but now I don't think so. At 7 PM, Ron Sutton ( our city commissioner who lives in the big house on Coury Drive with all the Christmas decorations) was still out there with the front end loader moving dirt around. What a guy! Let's vote him in again! The water is on again here now, but who knows? If it's out again in the morning, let's all meet at the pool with a bar of soap!

They're Back! A beautiful November day at The Cay and the best news of all is that people are arriving daily. They come to see diamonds on the water. They come to feel the warm sand and hear the ocean breeze. They come to fish, to swim, to golf, and bike. Most of all they come to see friends that they have missed over the summer. I see them quickly walk down the sidewalk to get to the beach. They stop and take it all in before even stepping onto the sand. What is running through their mind? Memories of a party on the deck, a time when their family was here and spent the day on the beach, or friends that have yet to arrive, and will make it down soon for another great season of laughter and fun. Those of us that spend most of our time here are reminded of what a special place this is to so many people who come down for a week, a month, a season, and realize that they really have found paradise. So...if you're not here yet, get your butts in gear, and let's fill up those beach chairs! The water won't stay warm forever, but we will be here to greet you, whenever you arrive.
