Marathon, FL–A nice, Relaxing Stay!

Feb 9 – Feb 18, 2019; 0 miles traveled

IMG_2423I highly recommend The Keys this time of year! We found the warm, sunny weather and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We visited with friends who stopped by, over Happy Hour & dinners. We enjoyed the pool in the hot afternoons.

Below is Happy Hour by the pool at Faro Blanco with MV Liberty, MV Let’s Go & MV Shell Belle.


I kayaked one afternoon with a couple here at the Marina who also have a Rossi; John & Susan on Mighty Wench.


A client/friend, Jane Wilson took me to tour, see and shop Key West!


Evidently, the higher up in stories you go at the Whistle Bar,  less clothing is worn.

We soaked up the sunsets from the marina beach area.


Not every day is perfect …

Marathon (49)

Cally had lots of walks, another swim and then her Pedicure – all thanks to Greg from Blurred Lines! Cally doesn’t care for nail trimming, unless someone is holding her and a Bully Stick fir her to chew. The Bully Stick distracts her so I can trim her nails with the Dremel tool.


There are Manatee sightings at the marina; up close and personal!!



There were lots of chores; laundry, grocery store runs, etc.

Rip replaced our 1000 Watt Inverter/Charger with a 2000 Watt Inverter/Charger. Rip stowed the original one and has a plan to reuse at home. No Pics, as my duty was to keep Cally out of Rip’s way.

We have enjoyed our stay here; the local boaters are super nice & helpful. The marina manager & staff are equally attentive and supportive. But, it is time to move on and head north.IMG_2418

After a few days at anchor along the way, the next “stop” is Miami to see our best buddies - Frank & Susan!!

Meanwhile, the Pelicans come every afternoon…just in case some one is cleaning their catch.


Bye, Bye Marathon … going to miss you!!
