"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."

-Mark Twain

Islamorada, Florida Keys

Today we met a relative that we had never met before. For lack of knowing the proper relationship I will simply say Jim's cousin Vicky lives in Key Largo with her husband Doug and daughter Megan.  Jim's grandmother and Vicky's grandmother are sisters, so what does that make Jim to Vicky? 
They came down to the marina, and we headed out to Wahoos @Whale Harbor for lunch. It was a nice afternoon, and we all had a great time.  Megan was a real trooper, putting up with hours of adult conversation. Hopefully we will connect with them again before we leave the area.

On Saturday @ Founders  Park, next to our marina there was a music fest called "Bay Jam".  During the course of the day various bands would take turns playing, and of course there was food vendors.

The weather is getting warmer, it is starting to feel more like Florida.  There is a heated olympic size pool at Founders Park that the marina can use, so we have taken advantage of that.

Hello Jim and Mary! Just wrapped up dinner, feasting on coconut shrimp, key lime shrimp and rice. All low cal...not! Well not as warm as Florida, but Ohio weather has been pretty darn good! We have had 2 weeks of 50 degree plus weather and no snow... break out the shorts and flip flops! Enjoy the warm tropical breezes! We miss the palm trees and calming ocean waters! Take care!Love ya, Sue and crew...

Hi Jim and Mary, No tropical breezes here the last couple of days but I am confident it will return. Love my condo; bathroom is about 3/4 finished. Really at the end of today will just need the painter. Start on flooring next and then kitchen. Think of you often and wonder what kind of great things you are enjoying. Talk to you soon. Luv Ya, Sheron
