Anchored Fort Jefferson (old civil war fort in middle of the ocean and a very weird place! ) Beautiful evening, frigate birds and pelicans, and we are right in front of the Fort. Went for  a look around, cleaned up the boat a bit and our top chef once again our chef is busy rustling up a masterpiece. Peace and quiet is amazing. Glad to stop rocking for a few hours. Out of here first light. We are going down the inside passage due to poor weather forecast over weekend, so should be calmer and more sheltered and into Key West a different way. 67 miles to go. Happy crew-fresh tuna and Rose wine.
