It took two days at Ft. Myers to recover! We enjoyed a great get-together for supper with Betty and Mike and Fernan and his family! So nice to see some familiar faces although they all decided to head south the next day. The next evening we made connections with Linn and Chris who were at Regatta Pointe last year and who joined us for supper on a raucous St. Patrick's Day. Chris has joined the ranks of professional writers and already has 6 books on amazon!!
We spent much of our time studying the navigational charts and decided to do another all nighter to arrive in Marathon in time to beat the storm front scheduled to move through over the weekend. And so we left at 8:30 the next morning.

This trip was much more pleasant than the previous one though a little bit longer. It was clear, the seas were relatively calm, although as usual, the wind was on the nose. We had enough food, did crossword puzzles, listened to audio books, played solitaire on the computer and in general the time passed fairly quickly. The crab pots were not too obtrusive and following our "cookies" on the GPS from our last trip made the entrance to the City Marina very easy!
|Our view all day - sure beat the fog!|
|Good morning, Marathon|
|Good night, Boot Key Harbor, Marathon|
