We got up early to assess a minor engine concern and after changing fuel filters we departed Peoria for our anchorage 61 miles south called Bath Chute. The waters in…
We made the short trip from Marathon down to our slip in Key West today (Wednesday, December 30th). We went on the ocean side then went around the end of Key West over to the Gulf side, to Stock Island and to Sunset Marina where we will be staying for the month of January.
New years day we thoroughly cleaned the boat from top to bottom, inside out. Our son Skyler will be joining us New Years day for a week and we don’t want to work much while he is here.
We like the marina, lots of friendly people here, a pool and easy access to downtown. Our first night here we were greeted by a couple, Vicki and Dave who live here on their big sailboat with their four children. They brought us a plate full of home-made cookies and one of the warmest welcomes we could have hoped for.
We are looking forward to staying put for a month and seeing what Key West is all about. We had been here by car many years ago but only for a weekend so we only got a taste of it at that time but, we liked what we saw. I think we’ll have a lot of fun. So, stay tuned.
