    We plan to head down to the Keys the 2nd or 3rd of Jan. Depends on the weather.

    As it stands right now will probably be around the Marathon area, no plans to go over to Key West.

    Haven't been to Stock Island in 2-3 years. The docks at Stock Island are nice. Have read that they have done quite a bit of development around the Marina including adding a hotel.

    We love Hogfish grill right across the Marina.

    Key West is one of our favorite places to go for a week in the winter. Don't think I could handle staying much longer. We rented a house again off of Duval Feb 10th for a week. When I retire again that is one place I would love to go by boat.. enjoy!

    Is everything back to normal down there after this summer's storms?

    Hey, that's one great bow ornament you two have. Nice photo!

    Have fun down there. KW is one of our favorite places to visit but about a week is the most we want to spend there.

    Heard from a couple of folks who have been there by boat since IRMA - said generally everything is fine. You might see some debris piled up somewhere, but open for business in KW.

    B3F9B6A3-5F88-43DE-8F81-31958828AC82.jpeg I wouldn’t say it’s totally back to normal as I understand quite a few people & families are living in tents while they work to get things done.

    We’re in Ft Lauderdale on the New River wall tonight & tomorrow night before continuing on South Thurday morning. We were fortunate enough to travel with two other buddy boats for close to five weeks up through the Long Island Sound with terrific stops along the way and we got some great photos of each other along the way.

    Ok, so now ya know we will be there so PM early enough to get the cell number and we will try to catch up if someone would like to. We will have transportation as well so look forward to meeting New & Old faces.
