Since we like Post Card Inn Marina so much and are under no rush as we are basically circling/passing time until we need to be in Miami for a flight out next week, we are spending three nights here. The thermometer took a big turn southward though. And yes, we realize that 51 degrees in the night might be balmy and a welcome relief for many of our readers; but it did surprise us. We’ve had to break out the fleece and vests for evenings and mornings. Have to admit it feels good. Ziggy seems a notch more active too.
So off we went walking some more only to find yet again the on-going theme of when walking the dog, one sees surprising things:
So much walking required some recuperating:
See the white dot boats in the horizon in the picture above? That’s a sand bar at low tide and N headed out to do some scouting
Here’s Nick on return after scouting the scene. Reported 3 inches of water…..and lotsa partying out there. We’ll all go out tomorrow if it warms up a bit. Note:N is sporting his hip double glasses combo!
It remained cold the following day, but we powered on and went biking a bit to see some nearby sights. On the way we finally stopped in at store we’ve passed several times.
Racks and racks inside and out. An unbelievable inventory of things for people who are NOT trying to downsize/simplify! In fact the 18-wheeler dedicated to just shells was dumping off even more!
After all that browsing, pointing and laughing, we finally made it to the Dive History Museum Another odd, out of the way (well, it’s on the main road down the Keys) little museum. Well worth the stop. Even had a documentary playing narrated by Sir David Attenborough (see post from last week where we SAW him in person at Pennenkamp with his BBC crew.!) Lots of cool stuff …too hard to photograph…you’ll just have to go.
Okay, Okay, one picture of diving stuff:
We biked “home” from the Diving Museum and despite the cold wind, dinghyed out for a picnic on the sand bar that Nick had scouted out the day before (see pix above).
Plenty o’ room with a view and B’s selfie—killing time while they hung out together!
Another visit from a not-so-shy Womanatee:
Great Lucky St Patty’s Day ! Hope you, Dear Reader, find your pot o’ gold, your four leaf clovers and your catch o’ the day today, too!
