We had fewer boat projects to complete this past week so we spent more time goofing off and enjoying the warm weather of South Miami. Charles had to do a port hatch repair job to stop a leak we discovered during our last passage but aside from that we've been pretty lazy.
During the week we spent time exploring the park and got to climb to the top of the Cape Florida light house
. The Fresnel Lens
was really impressive up close. Charles got so excited he lost his head!
I finally started painting a bit and we got our bikes off the boat for the first time and rode them around the Bill Baggs state park. We also took the opportunity to stock up on a few groceries.
We were almost getting bored with the peace and quiet of this idyllic harbor when the weekend came. Check out this video to see the difference between weekday and weekend (by the way - the music WAS NOT coming from OUR boat!)
On Saturday our friends Anne and Brook came to see us on the boat. They brought food and wine and presents and we all had a great time watching the craziness around the harbor. The wine came with a cute life preserver but of course we had to test it out on other things as well...
The weather has settled so we're ready to push off to the Bahamas. We'll leave for Bimini early Wednesday morning and will be at the Bimini Sands marina
