We are having a great time in the keys, if you have never been here,
they are tiny islands mainly just white beaches and the whole area is
surrounded by a reef that stops the Atlantic waves from coming in. It
is like being in an infinity pool with crystal clear water and a view
The locals are a lot less in your face, they bring their boats out to
the keys from the inhabited islands 10 miles away and for once sell
things we need like fresh bread etc so we quite happy to see them.
On Xmas day I bought Vicki a 5 kg live lobster which Christian and her
ate. (After I gutted it)
Yesterday we went snorkeling and saw leatherback turtles, we swam with
them and watched while they grazed like cows on the sea grass. Every
now and then they look up for a gap, swim to the surface and grab a
lung full of air. I tried to ride on one but only managed a few
seconds before it pulled away.
Today we may sail down to Union island which has a little civilisation
and give Vic a kitchen break and eat out.
So our loose plans for the next week is time down here maybe go to
Mystique then find a weather window hopefully on the 31st to sail back
to St Lucia where we put the boat in the marina and head to the US.
We not checking the telaurus or mailasail account much as no free
wifi, but my Blackberry has internet coverage and we are getting
googlemail pushed to it.
