BACK IN MARATHON
20 June 2011 | Marathon, FL
Cheryl - Hot
We arrived back in Marathon on Tuesday. Now at the Banana Bay Resort and Marina, plan is to stay here until mid October. Within an hour of arriving we walked across the street to Home Depot and bought an air conditioner. It's been more than 6 months since the last time we were at a Marina, nice to not have to dinghy to shore. There is a nice pool and Tiki Hut here but water seems to be about the same temperature as the air: 90+ degrees, not exactly refreshing!
My son, Chris, arrived here on Thursday. He will be staying with us for a while. He recently graduated from college back in Minnesota and decided it might be nice to spend some time in The Keys while he tries to figure out his future. Bill and I already have projects planned for him - varnishing teak, scraping the hull, polishing stainless - all the fun jobs fit for the lowest crew member! I did forewarn him so he can't complain.
It is already unbelievably hot and humid here. I can't complain since I constantly complained about the cold back in Minnesota so I'm technically just stating a fact ; ).
We have decided we will be below deck in the air conditioning between the hours of 11 am and 4 pm each day. We now also have fast internet and cable TV on board, first time we have watched TV in almost a year. Decided we haven't missed much.
