As well as filling up the tanks, we made a huge donation of blood to the local no-see-ums. With not even a slight breeze they smelled fresh meat coming into the dock and attacked. I think I would take mosquitos over no-see-ums any day. I think we’ll be itchy for a few days.

So where are we now? Well, we didn’t go too far today. About 27 nautical miles. We are anchored in Lower Matecumbe Bight. We got here early, so Brian took advantage of the shallow water and donned his mask and fins and cleaned our rudder and prop. It was getting a little furry from sitting in Boot Key Harbor. I did a quick dunk off the back of the boat too, but I’m always a little worried about the unseen “things” that are watching me.

Off to Key Largo tomorrow.
