#93 Miami, Florida to Pompano Beach, Florida

I can’t begin to tell you just how incredible it was waking up so close to downtown Miami. But not only that. Our route leaving the anchorage allowed us to pass so close to all the buildings, the city park, and the cruise terminal. Really magnificent. This is how I...

#92 Islamorada, Florida to Miami, Florida

Last night, we did not sleep well. When the alarm went off, we jarred awake at about 6:30 a.m. We talked about leaving at 6:45 the night before but those extra 15 minutes of sleep were so tempting. We rolled out of bed and were fairly sure that our anchor’s decision...

#91 Marathon, Florida to Islamorada, Florida

Well it’s time to leave Skipjack Marina in Marathon. A lovely marina and resort. The hotel looks like it was built in the 50s. But the pool area was nice. Even though the restaurant was closed for renovations, the tiki bar at the pool was open for food and drinks. We...

After the very rough 3-hour ride yesterday from Fort Myers Beach to Marco Island, I made Sam promise that the ride to Key West today would be better. He promised. If we didn’t leave today, we would have to wait 3 days until the next better weather window. So,...

#87 Cape Coral, Florida to Fort Myers Beach, Florida

Wow, what a month! We really had a fantastic time staying at Cape Harbour Marina in Cape Coral. On the night before we left we had a chance to meet Cully and Heidi who found us through YouTube. We met our neighbors, We Wine A Lot, and had a nice meal at Fathoms. Gotta...

Living the Dream?

Living the Dream?

I don’t know how your Loop started out but this describes ours perfectly! He wants to go. She doesn’t. He finally talks her into it. And so the story goes. Get hers here. Get his here (and hers too if she shares your dream!) If so, you are lucky, my...
