Shorter day today so we didn't leave at the crack of dawn. We didn't dawdle too much either. This is our first trip to the keys and the wind was our of the south around 15 MPH. We wanted to get underway before it could get beamy, which it never did.
As we left we noted that Marathon was our southest-most point we every reached as boaters. Yay, us!
There is a valuable upside to winds, especially in a place like the keys. Airflow! Despite the warmth (mid-80s) we haven't had to run the AC at all due to the breeze.

This is the secret dinghy spot.
That gave us a 10 minute walk to the Islamorada Brewing Company where we had lunch and drank some brewskies. I had the blueberry ale, which was very good.

When we returned, after all the salt water spray, I needed a quick shower! But it was a lovely trip.
