I must follow up what Jim wrote about last night. He basically was stating that God is in all that we see around us more so than in a building visited perhaps once a week. Today I saw God! We finally left Marathon, that in itself constitutes a miracle. Jim had me motor us out… Continue reading God Two
Oh its good to be back on the boat again! That tropical bitch Debby was depressing us with her constant rain, and dreary attitude so we left the boat at Marathon and went home to ocala for 5 days. Don’t get me wrong, it rained like hell in Ocala but at least I could set… Continue reading Oh, Its good to be back!
Its raining. Its still raining. Its still raining and is continuing to rain. When its not raining it is threatening to rain. (Can you tell we’re getting a lot of rain?) We are stuck here in Marathon, waiting to see what the weather is going to do. apparently, there is a low front over Mexico’s… Continue reading Rain, Rain, Rain
Part of sailing is, of course, visiting nearby land and exploring. We go ashore every couple of days for supplies, sometimes showers and laundry, and the occasional restaurannt meal. I dedicate this section to those places we eat a meal different from boat fare. ***** = best ever $ =$15-25 for all 3 of us… Continue reading Restaraunt Reviews
Key Biscayne Bay – life preserver ring on the waters bottom (yes the water is that clear). Didn’t do someone much good. Tire including rim floating on top of water. Balloon bouncing in tne water obviously tethered to something under the water. No dead bodies thrown in by Dexter. Lignun Vitae Key – a barge.… Continue reading Strange Things Seen on the Water in One Day
A sleigh ride it was today. We pulled anchors around 10 this morning headed out of the anchorage at lignumVitae; the wind was still cranking 20ish out of the east/northeast and gusting. The waves werent bad but the gusting wind made me want to try the ocean side for the trip to marathon. I should… Continue reading LigmunVitae to Marathon Sleigh Ride
The anchorage spot we chose for last night turned out to not be the best choice. The wind switched to the north east and it put us once again on a leee shore but this time with a continued high wind. The fetch from across the bay allowed the waves to grow to the 2… Continue reading Rock n’ Roll Hoochie Koo
Humm… Good question. Well, we’re parked (anchored) alongside a road, in water shallow enough to walk to dry land and 15 minutes from that good old american favorite, McDonalds (million and one served). Really we are east of uS1 north of the entrance to Jewfish creek at Key Largo. Right now it is raining lightly,… Continue reading Where are we?
I had a rough day today due to not sleeping last night. On our first day motoring from Jensen Beach to Boca Raton I forgot to apply sunscreen until too late. It does not make for great sleeping two days later. Fortunately, I have my new dress I made, which covers my back and is… Continue reading From Rough to Righteous
Another tireing day. Starting this morningI transformed the HotDot from a stink potter to a blow boat. Lesa and Kaelin hid inside while I worked and raised the mast. When I started raising the mast alone years ago it was always a very stressfull experience, now it just takes time and patience. The act of… Continue reading Dinner Key at Coconut Grove
