Almost Keyless


If you can tell a person’s troubles by the number of keys he carries then we are nearly trouble free. After the inspection of our very very clean apartment we turned in our keys. We are now down to a car key and a storage unit key each. We left the car in the garage of The Madison and walked around downtown on errands. We laughed over the fact that we were homeless in downtown St Petersburg. However we opted not to panhandle. We ended the day with a temporary home at the Vinoy. Steve’s dad spent his first night in St Petersburg at the Vinoy in 1957 as he was making arrangements to move his family here from Cincinnati. We thought it would be poetic for us to spend our last night here at the historic downtown hotel. We dined at Moon Under Water under the careful eye of one of our favorite servers, David.

Magerøya Island

Magerøya Island

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
