"Caloosa Cove Marina"

This was a little Marina along the Keys that we stayed overnight, next to one of the huge bridges
that connect the keys. We pulled in here and had to moor up to the dock as they didn't have a
mooring space big enough for us! Quite liitle place was able to use the time share hotels pool
next door which was great!

Hi Everyone!
Finally in a wifi spot to post some photos!
Captain Guy and i are now down at the very end of the Florida Keys at Key West!
Waiting for the weather and wind conditions to improve so we can check out of
America by rounding the Cuban coastline through the Yucatan Channel and head
straight to Panama Canal. The Yacatan Channel has strong currents and a lot of shipping traffic
so we are waiting for the right weather window! Had a good trip down the Florida Keys although
the wind was a bit head on and difficult at some stages! Cayenne and Captain Guy have performed
well! The first mate Shits her self sometimes and would like to hide under the bunk! but she's
getting there! A lot to learn and take in and we are being careful as we are getting used to how
Cayenne handles! Key West is like party central! and if we weren't so stuffed at night we would
join in! Funny feeling getting off the boat anybody would think you have had a few drinks as
your swaying all the time! Have been anchoring out in the harbour but come in for a few days
to Conch Harbour Marina, Captain Guys finishing the set up of the ssb radio and sail mail!
Besides the other night we had thirty knot winds gusting and at one o'clock in the morning
the anchor lifted and we started drifting! Not a good look up on deck on the electric winch lifting
the anchor to reset in your undies and headlight!! All good fun NOT!!!
Love to you all! Keep Ya Posted!

"GOT CRABS"

These crabs!
Have holes all along the boardwalks next to the boats! They crawl up the pylons
next to the boats!

"Moral of the story is"
don't walk on the grass at night when you go down to the showers!!!

May have to send "CAPTAIN GUY" out to hunt them shortly for food!!!
