332--Florida: Key West's Unauthorized Fantasy Fest
@ CherieSpotting     Nov 02 2005 - 13:19 PST
cherie writes: Greg, Lisa, Brian and I were determined to get to Fantasy Fest 2005. When Hurricane Wilma tore across Southern Florida and left 70 percent of Key West underwater, we didn’t give up our quest.

Some called us crazy. But we drove to the Florida Keys even when the news reports said the highway was closed. We continued driving even when we were told that Fantasy Fest was postponed. We heard the bridges were out…we continued to drive.

I don’t know what we were looking for. As J.R.R. Tolkien said, “Not all who wander are lost.” Here’s what we found in Key West—a highly “unauthorized” Fantasy Fest. Our friends Theo and Diane welcomed us into their Key West home. In honor of the courage of the local Conchs, Lisa and I dressed as “Wilma.”

Cherie and Lisa create an impromptu "Wilma" costume.  Hurricane Wilma forced Key West to post-pone Fantast Fest 2005.  The locals didn't heed the warnings and held their own "unauthorized" Fantasy Fest.
