1) coming into Marina Hemingway.

2) the main dining room at The National Hotel where we are staying. More of hotel later. Incredible history with all the famous people that have stayed there

3, 4 & 5 ) A restaurant that we went to on Thursday evening. I'll get name and post. Beautiful gardens and great food. Note the live goldfish served with tuna. Yummy, the tuna that is ! LOL

Default Cars n trains

Cars round about town. Trains were in the city next to cigar factory. Lots of rust and decay here but they keep these things running.

Final cars for now. When looking at cars don't overlook the architecture in the background and the condition of the buildings. Some are being restored but not nearly enough.

The red Harley is a 1937 and has an O'Canada sticker on it.

Awesome way to use your boat!
