As promised, I’m uploading a few pics from our jaunt to the Everglades.
Now, however, we are in this marina in the Keys.
This is about the most economical way from us to visit the Keys. The hurricane eliminated a lot of campsites that have yet to come back. Those campgrounds up and running have adjusted prices upwards -quite a bit in most cases too!
The little marina a Bahia Honda is still charging $2/foot, the same it charged us years ago. Just as important, we have a place to park the Blazer and boat trailer.
We had a long day on Wednesday getting down here and made it just before closing. We barely had time to launch the boat before dark. It took a little hustle to get it ready for sleeping, but we made it.
So what’s one of the first things we did Thursday morning, our first day in paradise? We went to do laundry. After a week and a half in the swamp we were pretty much out. I also had to find a post office and talk to my town clerk back at my home. The business of life goes on.
After lunch we took turns snorkeling off the island, which is more like it. Frankly, I also did a lot of sitting the shade with the dog drinking ice water and watching life go by. Good place for it. The weather here has been perfect and we finally have a break from the bugs.
Works for us!Delete
Must be nice to be finally sleeping on the boat on the water.ReplyDelete
Thank you Mike. It is nice to be back on the water.Delete
Great to see you and the Mrs. enjoying your adventures again. Enjoy the weather down there!ReplyDelete
Shoveling snow is down to a bare minimum. I've been building up my strength, endurance and agility down here -and I sorely needed to. Sure beats being stuck inside all winter.Delete
Laundry is ever-so important. To the point that I've got a set of clothes (tshirt, shorts, undies) in the van just in case of accidents, along with an extra set of undershorts in a ziploc I can stuff in my pocket if I am not feeling well but have to go out into the world (suffering from IBS sucks, but better to throw away a dirty pair of shorts than walk around in one.)ReplyDelete
Emergency pants are good to have. Better to have them and not need them.Delete
