www.GuyHarveyMagazine.com | 67 DAY 5 - APRIL 12 Sean and I hung out at the lodge and met Lisa at noon to shoot the breeze of the past two day's fishing. Lisa laughed at the remembrance of Sean jumping off the dock to get the floating rod to catch his fish. "Glad you told me about the ladder," said Lisa. "It's all about getting back to normal and knowing what our patrons want and need here in the Keys." True to her word, the safety ladder was installed the next day! As Sean and I left Cheeca Lodge to head back to the Miami airport, we took a split second in Islamorada to stop by the art studio of Pasta Pantaleo, and as a stroke of luck would have it, Pasta was there, painting a newly commissioned, 6-ft. majestic mural of a tarpon laying in a Keys channel. I thought of the peace, serenity and beauty of his paint strokes, which put me at ease. Pasta said with a content smile and charm, "We've been through many hurricanes down here. I'm still painting and you're still fishing. Nothing changes." Bouncing back, I thought to myself. Yes, bouncing back. Sandy, Irma, whatever hurricane comes our way, you can't keep a good life down.
