Where has January gone? We have been at this marina for the past week. Waiting for a weather window to cross to the Bahamas. In the meantime, enjoying Pickleball, attending church with friends this morning and the climate is wonderful.
There are four or five regular manatees down this channel. They literally roll over and drink water out of hoses! Quite a sight. Venture On

Marina Del Mar-Key Largo, Florida

We had a couple long days getting here. It is a great staging Marina- as we’re preparing to cross to the Bahamas. We haven’t worked out all the details with our insurance and need to connect a lot of dots but we’ll be here waiting for a weather window.
So this is a Marina/Resort which enables us to go between three pools, multiple restaurants, and has very nice facilities for us boaters. My best find however was a Wendy’s and Dunkin’ Donuts! They have been very few and far between for the entire nine months that we have been out. I plan to have one of each daily. 😳 however I did find a pickle ball court. I played two games this morning and wouldn’t you know it my mentors who taught me 8 years ago were there on the court!! It’s so fun to see familiar faces.🤗
We are always carefully watching the wind velocity and direction plus current and tide. At this particular place, we have a rise and fall of about 2 foot two times a day, which makes getting on and off the boat challenging at times. Ha ha venture on K&B

We pulled into Marina here this morning. After being on mooring balls and at anchor for six weeks, this place is overwhelmingly gorgeous! We R here for the week. Venture On it is! K&B
