I've had the Blog going for just a few years and it's humbling to see that we've had over 50K hits so far.  I apologize for not blogging more often this winter but we've been focused on our projects and haven't had much free time.  We're about to cast off the lines and start moving again, so there will be much more to Blog about.

Yes, the end of the line... end of our time here in Marathon.  This is the signpost down in Key West for the end of Route 1, down where everything is the "southermost".  We went down to KW with friends for a little exploring, and we paused to see some of the well-established crazies on Mallory Pier for the daily sunset party.  Here's the Southernmost Bagpiper.  Only in the Keys...

About 10 days ago I headed down to Big Pine Key for the monthly Sunset-Moonrise Kayak trip to benefit the National Wildlife Refuge volunteers.  It was an absolutely perfect evening to be out on the water - watching the birds and looking out for Key Deer while we waited for the sun to set.  We enjoy sunsets every evening, but this one was capped by the rise of the full moon over No Name Key.  Fabulous.

The next day we headed up to Miami for a day at the Miami Boat Show.  We volunteered in the Seven Seas Cruising Association booth for a bit, then met our friends the Berrys and the Russells to see the miles of booths in the Convention Center and talk to the vendors.

A few days later Jim celebrated his birthday.  I don't think he cares a lot about birthdays, but he's always happy to have dessert!

Chocolate-raspberry cake, chocolate chip ice cream, and friends - what could be better?  Happy Birthday Sweetie!

We went out with Richard & Carol to do some diving out by Sombrero Light but the conditions were not very good - rough waves, bad visibility, and a lot of portuguese man-of-war.  It was a great day anyway.

I continue to kayak as much as I can, looking for underwater critters and birds.  This is a young ibis - they turn white when they become adults.

It has been a delightful winter season, with DeFever get-togethers and friends on the dock.  We're always sad to leave, but excited for new adventures.
