Windy Weather

27 January 2018
We are still in Marathon. This has been an extremely windy winter. A few weeks ago, when you all were having snow and ice we were having cold and windy weather here. This week we are having windy but warm. The winds have been howling at 30+mph with gusts in 40's for the last 2 days and are expected to last for another day or 2. Friends in the Bahamas say its windy there too so we are just sticking around here till things calm down.

This is a nice place to be stuck. We did get to take a trip to Sombrero reef and snorkel the one calm day we had between windy days. S/V Godspeed hosted a group of 8 of us for the trip out to snorkel aboard their catamaran. We met them last year in the Bahamas and they are now on the mooring next to us. Its great to see them again. The boating community is a small world. We keep running into folks we have met on previous trips

We rented a car for a weekend and went to a nautical flea market in Big Pine Key. Other than that we have been hanging out with friends, trying out the different happy hour specials at the local restaurants and pretty much being lazy and hanging on the boat on windy days. Maybe we will catch a break during February and get a crossing window.

The picture above is Lilliputian on a foggy morning in Boot Key Harbor taken by Nancy of s/v Godspeed.
