its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

We spent most of today in Key Largo...not enjoying the sites but getting work done. The only thing we've really seen of Key Largo is the UPS store where we've been finalizing details on our new boat insurance. We had to print all the documents, sign them, fax them and then mail them in. Wow the hoops you have to go through to get the process done is crazy...especially when you live on a boat. After spending over an hour getting all the paper work submitted properly, we spent another hour having a new tire and tube put on my bike...not every day in paradise is fun.

We did treat ourselves to a nice lunch at the Key Largo Conch House before returning to the boat. It looks like there might be a weather window to make our crossing on Friday, so we decided to move closer to Miami this afternoon. That way we have a shorter day on Thursday to get into position. Weather windows seem to change day to day...so who knows. If we're lucky we'll leave early Friday morning, if not it could be another week. Time will tell. 

Our typical view the last few days. I just love the color of the water.

Key Largo has a very nice dinghy dock located off of Tarpon Bay. It's located in a nice little park behind the county offices building. About a 1/2 mile to Publix.

These pictures of the moon are from the last few nights...almost full.
