We left Punta Gorda on October first to begin our slow migration south to Marathon. We spent two weeks at Cayo Costa, anchored in Pelican Bay. We filled out time by beachcombing mostly. Had some friends come out in their boats to visit. It was a time to relax, and enjoy the peace and serenity. It was time well spent.
We finally moved on, spending a week in Fort Myers Beach before making our three-day dash down to the Keys. It was not uneventful, but that’s a story for another day. We’ll spend the winter here in Boot Key Harbor (on a mooring ball). We really hope to cross to the Bahamas in the spring.
I live for your updates!!! I am living vicariously through you until I retire and do it myself!! I also have a few colleagues that now follow you and are reading your books. BTW, I’m reading a bok that Breeze was reading about a couple who vacationed and decided never to leave Key West. Great read!!
Must be Jon Breakfield.
Ed, you’ll get to the Bahamas. I’d really like to see some photos of Boot Key harbor while swinging on the ball. Any particular reason you chose Boot Key to spend the winter?
They cater to live a boards here. Everything we need and well protected.
