welcome to mallory square

If you've ever seen one of those ceremonies where the mayor of a city gives some notorious notable the "key to the city", haven't you ever wondered how the key recipient knows which doorway to the city the key fits?

Like in New York. . . is it for the Lincoln Tunnel, the Holland Tunnel or the GWB (George Washington Bridge)?

If you get awarded the "key to the city" of Key West, there is no doubt, Mallory Square is your way in.

bamboo shoots

There are so many bamboo trees living in the garden, you'd half expect a family of fat and happy Pandas to be living back there. Bamboo can grow very tall so we cut them back every few months but, left un-eaten by hungry bears, they "shoot" right back again.

trumbo point

While was out and about yesterday I made a left where I might have gone right and found my way to the back end of Bahama Village that borders the old navy base.

The vaguely Aztec looking emplacement appears to be a long abandoned hollow hill.

I'd seen this kind of military structure years ago, when I was living in New Jersey, at the old Nike missile base on
Sandy Hook.

The installation made for some great pictures and when I got home I tried to find more information about the why, when and how of the place. Sadly, I came up empty. So, if anyone would care to share any information about this or offer a lead as to where I might gain a little insight, I would appreciate it.
