Moving North - Marathon to Islamorada

16 February 2018 | Marathon to Islamorada
East Winds 5 to 10
After pulling up anchor on Valentines Day Eve we headed to our first dock for 'full service' of fuel, water and pumpout. Debbie at Marathon Marina Fuel Dock was awesome. The floating dock was easy to get to and depart from. This was allot easier than hauling liquids in jugs to the boat in rolling seas.

Sunset at Anchorage

Onward east then with a 5 hour motor to an anchorage off Channel Key on the inside. It was a beautiful spot to spend the night. Of course the wind was on the nose as it will be for most of the upcoming trip through the keys. We made an awesome dinner with chocolate cupcakes to boot.

Sunrise at same anchorage - Look who's up!

Our 2nd stop after leaving Marathon was Matacumba Bight. We were close to US 1 at this anchorage in front of a bunch of HUGE houses. The lights on shore were VERY BRIGHT and ridiculous. It was like anchoring in a Walmart parking lot. One night was enough because of that. We did do a 5 mile kayak ride after 3 in the afternoon and got a close look at the giant houses and found some interesting things in the water.

Gail Buck gave Eileen a hat and Charlie brought his tractor hat along.

Day 3 took us to Islamorada Yacht Basin and we anchored a short distance from Lori-lei Bar and Beach.

Lori-lei Dinghy Beach - great place to get to the bar

Happy hour $1.25 drafts...you bet. The bartender was surly just as yelp said they would be. It was a good happy hour with decent food. We'll be here another night.

Islamorada is also the winter home of one of our former customers, Skip. We don't know if this is his house or not but it sure could be. Skip purchased lots of Hobie Cats from us during our years at the shop and it wouldn't surprise us if this was his place. No one was home...

We also found time to try Keys Brewing Co. Great Beer here. Too bad we will miss their 3rd anniversary party this weekend.

Winds were predicted in the 20's for the coming week so we needed to find a place to hunker down and get to shore easily so we moved again on the 17th and headed to further NE.
