Sail the Bahamas
Yesterday, we took an extra day at Rodriguez Key to regroup and get some much-needed rest. We dinghied in to Key Largo where we went to the grocery store to stock up on ice and supplies, went to Diver’s Direct, and the ice cream shop. We topped up fuel for the dinghy as well. We … Continue reading
Yesterday we sailed from No Name Harbor at Key Biscayne to Key Largo Dry Rocks where we snorkeled the reef. On the way there, Justin caught an 8 lb Little Tunny fish. At the reef, we saw all kinds of fish and coral and Christ of the Abyss, a 9′ tall 4000 lb underwater statue. … Continue reading

Our drive home from Marianna was beautiful. We stopped at Florida’s “highest waterfall” in Falling Waters, Florida. It was a nice diversion from the drive, but we didn’t spend very long there. Everyone was intent on getting home so we kept rolling. Turkey sandwiches and ramen noodles kept the group happy as we got closer … Continue reading
