Zipped up dice

Here are some of the zip-closed dice bags I made.  I've put up a picture-filled tutorial.  These bags aren't very big, but are great for someone that just wants to take the dice they'll need for a game, not a giant bag.

Short visit to Key West, FL

When we got to Key West, FL, I was dreading heading back north.  The weather in Key West was 79F and sunny.  I wasn't prepared for the thirty degree weather I'd find at home.  Guess I couldn't stay away all winter.
I was almost going to have dinner here.  I just couldn't do it alone. 
Key West is one of the few places in the U.S. I can go and hear the roosters call any hour of the day.  I even watched traffic stop (and honk) so a hen and rooster could cross the road.

 The sunset was pretty.  Had to share.
I didn't even look for the southern-most yarn shop in the country.  I should have.

Brief stop in Panama

We only stopped for a few hours and some fuel in Chiriqui Grande.

They didn't really line up so I could take their picture, but it sure seemed like it.

It isn't all work...

We made only two stops during the last patrol.  The first was Cartagena, Colombia.  Sure, I've been before, but I had to have something to share so I took more pictures.  They are in no particular order.
A picture as we pulled into the harbor.
Christmas at 85F didn't seem quite right, but I can't complain too much.
Looking across to the new city.
Outside food and drink.
The entrance to the Old City.
We went with the meat-lover's.  Tasty.
Just outside the entrance to the Old City.

I did pick up some fabric while I was there.  I'll have to take a picture to share.  I suppose it would be more impressive if I made something out of the fabric.
