Marathon- the birthplace of Andy and Elaine- but not this town.

January 31, Feb 1

Sunday morning was relatively calm as the sun came up .


We left our anchorage at 9:15, and followed the ICW to Marathon, arriving at about 1:00.  Once again our route was plagued with crab pots everywhere. Elaine took over driving for a time and got the opportunity to dodge the pots.


We saw these birds sitting on posts along the path.


Once we got to Faro Blanco, we went for showers and then trekked into town ( 1.9 miles) to get some groceries and lunch.


Being in the Keys which is sometimes known as the Conch Republic- we tried the conch fingers-deep fried.

On our way into town  we saw the Turtle hospital and this ambulance



Since Andy and Elaine were born in Marathon ON, we wanted to get some pics of them with a Marathon FL sign.





We later went out for supper with our friends Dick and Pat from Dream Catcher who  are in Marathon until March.  It started raining during the night and as of 9:30, it is still overcast and spitting.


The plan today is to move on to Key West for a couple of days.
