|sombrero beach. it seemed like a fun little spot and it gets extra points for being dog friendly!|

We've been in Marathon, on a mooring ball in Boot Key Harbor, for a week now. It's been a great place to spend the holiday, with a Publix, Home Depot, and Redbox within walking distance, and a convenient marina facility for showers, laundry and wifi, and plenty of people around to wish us a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, which really, is no small thing.
The weather has been sort of rainy, so we haven't done much besides walk about a mile to the Redbox and get a movie, and then walk back to return it, repeat, repeat. At least we're getting some exercise in between all of the movie watching. We did make the 15 minute trip by dinghy to check out the beach one day, for about 30 minutes, (because one of us doesn't really know what to do with himself on a beach, and it wasn't really hot enough for swimming. I thought it would be our first real beach day of this whole trip, but I'm not counting it.) and we had a good dinner at a local restaurant one night, too. 25¢ wings on Thursday is pretty good motivation for a date night, right?
We're moving on today... to Key West for New Years Eve perhaps? It could either be a fantastic idea, or a terrible one. We'll have to see how it goes.
