Back in business...

The Nation's birthday, July 4th, was the first day the Schooner Western Union sailed the Key West Sunsets ones again. After a absence of two years the ship is back.
Steve from digital Island Media captured this historic moment while enjoying the Key West waters himself.
Many thanks go out to the community of Key West who helped us achieve our goal to save the ship for years to come.

Sunset Party



























This is going to be "the sunset party" of the summer...
In my quest for a bike trade up project I'm in the possession of a 3 hour sailing tour on the Jolly 2 Rover.
The Jolly 2 Rover is a large square rigged schooner with the Key West bight as her home port.
For three hours we sail the Key West waters, watch the Sunset, listen to music, drink Champagne or Wine and enjoy some fabulous Diane cooking.
Besides all this fun we have a few birthday's to celebrate as well.
August 29th at 6:00 pm we leave the dock.
The plan is to sell the tickets at $100.00 each.
Proceeds go to food, drinks, music and ultimately my bike...

Poor Boy Bagel

Hard times are everywhere, even here in our millionaire town Key West.
But creativity is found here at the Coffee Plantation.
Our very regular customer Svea created the Poor Boy Bagel,
Look at this beauty....
For the reasonable price of $3.50 you can buy yourself the most affordable breakfast in Key West.
A nicely toasted "Goldman's" bagel, soft butter, peanut butter and a fresh banana. Yummy!!!
Wow...
Bonapetit...

Job well done...

The power of Coffee

Almost one year ago Jeff Salzman and Theo started the quest to save our Key West flagship the Schooner Western Union from leaving our city.
The non for profit organization "Schooner Western Union Preservation Society" was born.
Now one year later, after lots of Coffee Plantation Coffee, Negotiating, repair and restore work, and the help from the whole town of Key West we can say; "we saved our Flagship".
Thursday July 3th we received our Coast Guard Certification.
You can see our ship sailing the famous Key West sunsets ones again.
The power of Coffee....
