A Blast From The Past!

Had a wonderful surprise, Chris was here in Marathon on Coast Guard business, and was able to spend some time with us! Since the last time I saw him was decades ago, there was lots to catch up on. Chris is the son of my best friend from high school, so I’ve known him since he was just a twinkle in his Daddy’s eye. What a great guy he is, thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the beer!

Fueling up for the day

Heather and Marty brought us this awesome pancake mix. You can add egg and milk, or just water, and they are equally good! We had some this morning along with some of our last remaining Michigan maple syrup that we brought back with us last summer. We need fortifying this morning as it’s only 55 degrees here in Marathon, and windy. First time in quite a while that we’ve pulled out our jeans - we don’t expect any sympathy from anybody though. ☃️☃️

Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday to Us!

In addition to the scrumptious pecan puffs, bourbon balls, and chocolates that Katie and Felix sent us, we received gifts from Margi’s Aunt Garby. They included a cute little metal label with a nautical saying, a book about various ways the world and people might die in bizarre ways, and a coupon from Naked Wines for a case of wine at a discounted rate. We had seen these coupons before, but had never met anyone who had actually used one (must be a scam, right?). Well, we decided to give it a try, and woohoo, here is our mixed case of wine that was delivered right to the marina. After researching the wine online, we are extremely pleased to have gotten a terrific deal on some very nice wines, and we didn’t have to carry them back from the store to the marina. Thank you so much Aunt Garby!!!

Getting mail

People have asked us how we get our mail. We use a mail service, which ships our mail to wherever we are. Today we received a shipment via UPS. The online confirmation says that it was left at a shed and received by people on boats. Has to be our most unique confirmation.😎

Merry Christmas Eve from Boot Key

Chuck is grilling hamburgers, and soon we will settle in to watch Rudolph and A Charlie Brown Christmas!

Christmas time in Boot Key Harbor.

We are back in Marathon, and although things are a little rough around the edges, the place is in remarkable shape considering the massive amount of damage done by Irma. More boaters are returning to the mooring field than expected, and most of the useable mooring balls are occupied. Fortunately there [...]

21 December 2017 | Marathon, FL.
We are back in Marathon, and although things are a little rough around the edges, the place is in remarkable shape considering the massive amount of damage done by Irma. More boaters are returning to the mooring field than expected, and most of the useable mooring balls are occupied. Fortunately there were still some available when we arrived, so unlike last year, we were able to go right to a ball and not try to squeeze ourselves into the still crowded anchorage. In a serendipitous event, our friends Dennis and Linda were already planning on taking their decorated boat out for a sundown harbor tour with the neighborhood kids, so our first night here we were treated to a fine display of Christmas cheer. We plan on being here a month, using the time to complete some more boat projects, and hopefully getting our generator repaired.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!🎄🎁
