Let's be perfectly clear, we are not complaining about the weather here but having to dig out our cold weather gear to go exploring in Key West, FL is kind of a bummer. Hey, it's cold riding a scooter around in 60 deg air don't you know. I know we are not getting any sympathy from our friends north of us but just want to report what's going on down here and the talk of the town is how cold it is. Fortunately, it is only for 3 days then back into the 70's.
The good news is that the cold air has kept us around the boat and eating what we fix in the galley. We also catch up on some cleaning and solving problems with posting our blog, (more on that later). The cold air didn't stop the tourist from coming off the cruise ships and invading the island like locust in hoodies. Even in the cold, wind-driven drizzle, tourist were sitting outside eating and drinking like it was 80 degrees. I guess that's good for the shoppes and restaurants in old town so more power to em.
As the old saying goes, "If it ain't broken, fix it till it is." I am referring to Apple and their new photo format known as the .HEIC format. Apple has replaced the tried and true .JPEG that used to be universally compatible with almost everything and this caused us to not be able to upload any of our iphone photos to blogger. It took a better part of the morning to find a work around just to get these photos to load on our blog site. I tried all recommended "fixes" in the settings folder but none worked. What we have is a clunky process to convert HEIC to JPEG and it will have to do until updates are made to accommodate the new format. I guess it may be a good thing in the long run but for now it is very inconvenient. OK, enough whining. That's the news and here are some views, (finally).
