"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

Banana Bay in Marathon

It is almost a week that we are here in Banana Bay, we have been to the pool and hot tub only once, because..........you guessed it, the weather turned cool. I know you feel real bad for us, not to worry, we have allot of maintenance items to take care of, so the cooler temps are just fine. I also have a correction, I was told our view is of Florida Bay, in the Gulf. Not called the Gulf right here. 

 Our friends Ted & Nancy on "Aloha Friday"  drove up from Key West on Tuesday, it was great to see them again. They have spent allot of winters in Key West, so we are planning on taking the bus from Marathon to KW on Monday for a personal tour.  The bus ride should be a real adventure, just another thing to experience on this trip.
On Wed. another looper boat came into the marina, Fred & Linda on "Young America" they finished their loop trip as they came into Banana Bay.  So of course there was a "celebration" party on the dock today at 5:00.  They have been living aboard for 2 years,  and will stay here until March.

Just a few pictures of our marina, stay warm and keep smiling.

Beautiful pictures and what a wonderful time you must be having. I could get used to five weeks of that real quick. Much of the snow melting here (yes). Hoping spring will be on the February/March wind. Have fun!
