Our pace has finally slowed down a bit in the Keys….It only took four months for us to begin to learn to relax……The Keys will do that to you! We will spend the next several days in Key Largo. Our slip overlooks the Pilot House Restaurant where they have live music most evenings. Our second night here we sat on the bridge (the top part) of the boat and watched a magnificent full moon rise as we listened to Beatles music, Billy Joel music, and a bit of reggae and steel drums.
….as the sun went down and the full moon rose even higher we were treated to an amazing light show of the moon reflecting in the water below.
As we were enjoying another Key Largo evening sitting on the cockpit (back part) of the boat, we met Dan and Lisa from Massachusetts. They are “vacationing” on a boat two slips down from us. New to us is the boat Air B&B concept. Several boats here at the marina are leased as Air B&B vacation boats. We enjoyed visiting and learning about their background and families. Later it became apparent that Santa was interested in Lisa and it doesn’t look like she discouraged him a bit!
We learned that with all of the rain back home in Nashville, February was recorded as the wettest month in Nashville since 1890. And still in the low 30’s at night? I suppose we will just stay in The Keys where the sun is always shinning and the warm breezes blow.
One of our best meals yet – homemade smoked salmon nachos!
We are still waiting out the Atlantic wind and waves for our continued trip north……
