Feb 7-10 Days 10-13 Easterlin CP to Marathon

Easterlin proved to be a good stop right in the city and not far from the farthest north water taxi stop. Jeff & Marla picked us up and we had a superb dinner at the Greek Islands Taverna in Fort Lauderdale. Wednesday we headed south for the Keys and camped in the rain at Fiesta Key RV Park. It was formerly a KOA and needs a lot of maintenance. Thursday the sun came out and it is amazing how much better the place looked on a sunny day. Thursday night Bob & Ginny picked us up and we went to a good restaurant the Islamorada Fish Company. The owner of Bass Pro shops built it along with a huge store and bar in an old marina. The store has the restored sister ship to Hemingway's Pilar, a 38 ft cabin cruiser built in 1933. Hemingway's boat is preserved in a museum in Cuba.  Today we drove 19 miles southwest to Marathon and I went out in Ed and Daisy's 44 ft sailboat along with two other couples. Mavis elected to stay on shore. We cruised out to the reef and Gulf Stream and then explored the waterways in Marathon.
