Bahia Honda State Park


Lily is shown above singing and hanging out her laundry. I know you think we are always doing laundry but today we actually swam, snorkled, walked Chewy on the Bahia Honda State Park trails and shared a pint of ice cream in the cockpit. Chewy got thrown off the no-dogs-allowed beach and pouted in the shade while we swam. Apparently, swimming with dogs is considered unhygenic in Florida. I am sure Chewy was thinking, “You can’t tell me they are all holding it for this long” as we swam and swam. We saw an iguana on our walk and a sting ray in the water. Pork chops on the grill are planned for tonight. We are planning to sail the short distance to Marathon Key tomorrow. Jacob spent all his free time in Key West pricing skim boards. One broke toe just isn’t enough.

    >Oh how precious! I can just hear her little voice! Are you still planning a crossing soon? Where will the last stop be and where is the first stop on the other side?

    >Seems like you spend a lot time in a port somewhere! ha-ha. That's my kind of sailing. Lili is just adorable!

    >Wow! Your adventures are less tame than ours! DO you remember us? We are the couple with a dog who were docked with you at Crow's Nest in Venice. We were checking your website to see where you had sailed to and notice you are in the neighborhood. We are currently tied up at Sombrero Resort & Lighthouse Marina in Marathon, FL, which we highly recommend. They have a pool and tennis courts and Latiitudes Italian restaurant right here. David has been working, so this quiet place has worked out well for us. Tomorrow, we plan to drive up to pick up our boys at Camp Nana's. If you need a marina to stay at, we recommend this place – talk to Kyle. They have a discount rate for the next month and plenty of space. Hope to hear from you.

    >We are still trying to decide where to go from here. The current plan being tossed about is spending Hurricane season in Savannah, GA. Jacob is antsy to stay long enough to met some teens.
    Jan – Thanks for all the pics. Where are the ones of you playing in the sprinkler?? Don't hold back, now.
    CaptainMom – We are moored in the Marathon Mooring field but we are also leaving tomorrow. I wish we could have gotten Lily together with your boys! Have a nice break from boat life.

    >Oh Tammy I can just close my eyes and see the
    adventure you are having, it is giving me wanderlust. Lily is so precious! Such a good
    little helper! Poor Chewy, no beach for dogs??

    We didn't get to go to Charleston together but maybe Savannah? Or you could fly to Savannah and we could road trip to Charleston. I'll be needing a boat break myself come August of Sept. Tell Rex Hi for us.

    >Tammy – we just got back from Savannah and Charleston and went on up to Pawleys Island. Some wonderful places you must stop are…. St. Mary's, GA. It is a great town adjacent to Cumberland Island just across the Florida/ Georgia border. There is a really cool civil war fort on Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island. All those barrier islands in Georgia have some great Gullah history!! If you decide to go further north – we found a wonderful local fishing town North of Charleston – it is Georgetown. Just north of there is Pawleys Island and Murrells Inlet – AWESOME inland marshes and very quaint and local flavor marinas!!

    >Thank Laura! We know nothing about the area as we didn't expect to head this way. I wish our tracks would have crossed there but I am still looking forward to seeing you at some tropical island setting in the future.
