It's been a very relaxing week, we had planned to head down to Key West on Monday via the local bus. We woke to the sound of rain, and as luck would have it, it rained all day, so the bus trip to Key West will have to be rescheduled. One day of rain is not bad, the rest of the week was sunny with temps in the high 70's. There was a music festival held over the past weekend, it was the 1st annual Florida Keys Traditional Music Festival, it was fun even though we were not familiar with any of the musicians. Pat Daily who plays at the round house in Put in Bay will be in Key West this weekend. The rest of our time has been spent doing little maintenance jobs on the boat and hangin out at the pool. Not much to report, oh yeah, Jim was carded, can you believe it. Here's the story, we went to the local IHOP for breakfast and Jim decided to order off the "55 and older" section of the menu, also known as the "senior section". The waitress did not believe he was old enough, he had to show her his drivers license. It was the hi light of his day!
Tuesday there is a looper get together at one of the other marinas, there will be 60 loopers attending. Marathon is a popular spot to winter in for people doing the great loop. It should be fun catching up with friends we have met along the way. Most of us are spread out amongst the many marinas down here, and get around either on the dinghy or bikes.
Next weekend we are having our first visitors from home on the boat. Ed, Sue & crew will be coming down. We are excited to see them and have them spend some time with us. There is a standing invite to who ever would like to come down and see us, we have an extra bedroom and then there is always the couch.
Here's Jim & Ted clowning around at Key Fisheries, where we had a great lunch one afternoon.
Have a great weekend, hopefully the snow won't get too deep, as always, stay warm and safe.
