After getting checked in, we made contact with our former slip neighbors, Dave and Janice that are here in the harbor. We went to dinner in a restaurant for just the second time since we left Palmetto 3 and a half weeks earlier. We compared stories of our trips down and found that we had very different experiences. They had some seriously strong wind and much rougher seas. It was a fun evening and a beautiful sunset.

|This was one of the tables to get food. There was more than enough to go around.|
|This large building is the office and common area for the marina. They have a library, TV rooms and places to charge your electronics. There are also work areas that can be used to work on projects off of your boat.|
There is a beach called Sombrero beach that is about a mile dingy ride away. Kim and I took a trip to see what it was like.
|This is where we landed our dingy. It seems to be running well and we use it almost every day to get around.|
|This Great Egret did not seem to mind that we came for a visit.|
|Another Kim on a beach picture.|
|Kim claiming this new land as ours for the day. The water was crystal clear with lots of sea life.|
|This picture is proof of me being there and agreeing to attend.|
Well that is about it for the first week. I will try to break down our activities by week, but we will see how inspired I feel to write about all that we have been doing. In my next entry, I will write about some time in Key West and will show you some of my favorite sunset shots I have ever taken. Thanks for reading!
