#90 Key West, Florida to Marathon, Florida

We stayed at the Boca Chica marina at the Naval Air Station Key West for a week. Our last sunset in Key West was a beautiful one. The next morning after Reveille, I took a stroll so you could see the base. Well, not the entire base, just the marina. They put us at the...

#89 Marco Island, Florida to Key West, Florida

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,...

#85 Venice, Florida to Saint James City, Florida

#84 Sarasota, Florida to Venice, Florida

What a great city Sarasota is! And a fun place to celebrate the holidays. We are looking at a short trip today, only about 2 1/2 hours, so we aren’t in a hurry to get out of Marina Jacks. We had a nice leisurely breakfast at O’Leary’s Tiki Bar and...
