Wicked Nice Pics. enjoyed over lunch!

Very nice pictures....I have a long story from the Tecate picture that happened in Key West, Florida. It involved two friends, 3 cases, and a nice hot sunny day, at the end of Duval street pier.

Needless to say, we were kicked out before we finished all of the beer, but what a day! And the women.....especially when you hold a sign that says" Free beer, for Topless women".....it works!!
