Well the first week has been a great week. Candy and I have taken some good long walks and she has had the opportunity to meet a lot of other dogs at the marina. There has not been a lot of play time with the other dogs but she still has gotten a chance to meet and greet and sniff.
We have been down to Marathon once and up to Key Largo twice. Getting to know the Keys a little better with where the shopping is, Publix and Winn Dixies. We are going back to Marathon again to look at some of the marinas we considered down there. We went to lunch at Key Fisheries in Marathon when we were there. Lunch was good but I am glad we did not decide to stay at the there. A fish market, a restaurant, a Tiki Bar and marina. The marina looked small and lacking in any kind of amenities. There is something to be said about doing investigation beforehand.
The drive down to Marathon was great with lots of great views of the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico. This last week has been real windy with many days 15 to 25 mph winds and lots of whitecaps on the water. Today is a little less wind and it should calm in the next several days. There have been a few boats come in. I think they were traveling on the Gulf Side and the intercoastal is a able to handle a litle more wind before getting real choppy.
Looking thru some guides we picked up at the Visitors Center, we will have a Pop Concert and a Bluegrass Festival here (Founders Paek/Plantation Yacht Harbor) in the next couple of weeks. That should be interesting as we are maybe 500′ (as the crow flies) from the bandshell so we should be able to hear the music very well.
The pictures include sunset at the harbor, picture of the harbor and boats, pictures of the marina beach and a couple of pictures of Key Fisheries in Marathon.
