Work on the boat had to stop for a couple of weeks while we took the family to the Florida Keys for a Spring break vacation.
When we hit the road leaving from Ohio it was raining and 36 degrees. When we arrived in Little Torch Key twenty hours later, it was sunny and 88 degrees. To be honest with you, it really hasn't stopped raining since we left for Florida as our part of the world has just recorded the wettest month on record( April).
We rented a house on Little Torch Key. The house was on the water with the rear facing due east. It was nice watching the sun come up while drinking coffee on the back porch with Shannon.
While the time away from the Ohio winter was not long enough, our time in Florida sure did help re charge some batteries. I plan on getting back to the keys, but the next time will be while we are cruising on the trawler.
