No One Defects To Cuba; Gazettes Aren't Mailed There in January of this year, Joe and Paula Holland of Lewes (r) visited Jim and Judy Roberts in Key West, Florida. Jim and Judy have a cottage in Key West where they spend the cold days of winter. During the visit, the Hollands and Roberts worked their way to the southernmost point of the United States, the tip of Key West. "In this photo," wrote Judy, we are closer to Cuba than we are to Miamil" Cuba is 90 miles south of Key West. Basking in the evening sun casting its long shadows, the Hollands and Roberts, in the deepest south of the U.S., found themselves surrounded by crates of pink conchs and green, fleshy mangoes and plaques telling of wonderful local history - the Hemingway anecdotes, Bogy and Bacall, Jimmy Buffet - and on the southern breezes wafting off the Caribbean, they occasionally caught the fresh, pungent scent of limes and bay ram, The faintest ringing of steel drums too teased their ears. And they joked for a moment about defecting to Cuba. "We could leave behind the Key Lime pie and conch omelets," said Judy. "And we thought about how we would miss the great highways of America stretching north to the cities of the seaboard and our families, and to Canada to the north and to the great mountains to the west. That we would miss. But the whole exercise came to a halt with the force of a first-class hurricane when it dawned on us that no excitement associated with moving to a strange land could fill the void in our lives that would result from leaving behind the Cape Gazette. We set our compass north." IName ' ': : State Zip . , We accept Z and ] as payment for Cape Gazette subscriptions. To have your credit card billed, please include your number and expiration date.
