We were here two years ago and went into the ocean where I am positive that I saw a shark swim between us. Not possible today. Why? The poor fish would have been trampled by all the people. There were so many on the beach that they had to take numbers to go into the water. I still can't believe the number of people. Maybe it was because of Mother's Day.
Easy day today, even with 10 bridges. On the way, we saw a Hunter sailboat by the name of Bright Star. There used to be such a boat at Burnt Store Marina and for a while it was on our dock. The owners put it on the market. This captain purchased it sometime last year and moved it to Boca Raton. It is not unusual to come across people on boats you know. In fact, whilevat the marina this afternoon, we watched a boat come into a slip and saw that it was from Punta Gorda. Another boat here is on its way to All American Boat Yard in Charlotte Harbor.
Tomorrow we are off to Key Biscayne, past Miami. From there, I think we will work our way down the Keys, enjoy the solitude and do some swimming.
