2015-01-15 Bahamas Or Bust..First Marathon, FL

Magnolia has really enjoyed our stay in Marathon, FL but before we left really wanted to visit Key West. Luckily there is bus service all along the FL Keys so we just caught a very reasonably priced bus for our day trip. The one thing we really wanted to see was the “Truman Whitehouse” at the old Submarine Base at Key West.  http://www.trumanlittlewhitehouse.com/

There were many beautiful homes around Key West but have to say this little gem comes about as close to what we are looking for next.

The actual beginning of “Jeff Davis Hwy.” Next time we are in Arlington, I really need to see if we can find a mile marker along there.

Enjoying a beautiful Florida Keys Sunset!

Cory & Ty are a couple of escapees from Nashville an continue to write music on the back of a boat! They play at a number venues in Marathon. This was a appreciation show they did for all the other cruisers for the support they have received from the community. https://www.facebook.com/coryandtymusic

The day before departing Marathon I get a message from my former boss Anant wanting to know if we were still in the Keys. They were passing through Marathon but made time for breakfast and catching up.

Right after breakfast Annette and I started making final preparations to head for the Bahamas the very next day. The trip was planned for 226 miles straight. Things never seem to work out the way you plan them though…that’s for next week…
