Gobble, Gobble, Gobble !!

Sunset at Key West
Just pretty

Boca Chica Key
 Well, we finally sailed south to the Florida Keys after hearing for years from many of our fellow boating friends how great it is. And how right they are.

It was a fantastic Fall sail down here. With mostly fair winds at our back and kindly seas on the quarter. On our way we visited most of our familiar gunk holes like Vero and West Palm, Fort Lauderdale and Key Biscayne,and made a few new ones like Boca Chita Key and Rodriquez Key.  And now we are settled down in Marathon for the Holidays. At this moment in time we can't think of a better place to be to celebrate the 2013 Holiday season. It is a perfect place for family and friends to come visit if they want to escape from the cold for a bit. The first weeks of November Linda Haith came from Kansas City to join us on a sail down to Key West for a few days. She has some experience on the water so she was a great hand along the way. We had a fun trip out to the reef for some spectacular snorkeling.

Now settled in our slip in Marathon as the winter northerlies blow. Our Thanksgiving will be spent with fellow sailors at the newly opened Docksider Bar & Grill at our marina. It should be a hoot !!! We are thankful for so many things in our lives but especially our family and friends both old and new. But none of this would be possible without the blessing of our Lord Jesus Christ. So we give thanks and wish you all a happy and fun filled Thanksgiving.
