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!
Heather and Marty brought us this awesome pancake mix. You can add egg and milk, or just water, and they are equally good!

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!!!
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.😎
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 [...]
