its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Feb. 17 - Marathon, FL

Sombrero Resort & Marina

“I've got nothing to do today but smile.” ―Paul Simon

Only twelve more days left at Camp Marathon and the weather has warmed up but is still windy. Hopefully these horrible cold fronts that have brought blizzards to the north will subside soon or at least start coming through further apart. The boats waiting to make the crossing to the Bahamas are beginning to stack up...here and places further north along the coast. I've heard from others we know, who are already in the Bahamas, that the wind isn’t any better there.

We've been filling our last days with a few little projects...emphases on little, kayaking, walks, visiting with people, basket weaving, reading, visiting with people, listening to a few bands, working Sudoku puzzles, visiting with people, dinghy rides, going to the pool and the beach, watching the manatees, and did I mention visiting with people? We've also been going through all our information on the Bahamas while we have time and will do last minute provisioning next week. We've had a lot of fun in Marathon and it's been easy to fall into the lazy island life, and we look forward to exploring the beautiful waters of the Abacos soon, but we are beginning to miss everyone at home A LOT. Especial our little grand wonders.

We borrowed a couple of kayaks to paddle around the mangroves a little
The pelicans are always waiting for a free hand out from anyone that's been fishing.
