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.
