This lovely anchorage proved to be secure and quiet. Our leisurely morning was spent with the blog and a little communication with the office.
Pulling up anchor, we came into close view of the Flagler Island Monument then continued our slow southward journey.

We saw dolphin for the first time in a long while. It is always such a thrill to see them leaping and cavorting in our wake or skimming just under the brow pulpit.

Around lunch time we dropped anchor but soon were on our way again. We crossed the Government cut with its bustling activity. Ships were docking and cranes whirring around while we skipped right through and made our way past Claughton Island, under the Rickenbacker Causeway Bridge and into the Biscayne Bay.

We decided to set our anchor down right off Key Biscayne where we found several yachts enjoying the calm waters and beautiful scenery. We thought the neighborhood would pass inspection too.
|THE NEIGHBORHOOD WASN'T TOO HARD TO TAKE!|
We watched while the sun set over the eastern Florida coast.

Robert made it to Marrakesh and here is a photo of the market. To quote Robert, "It is filled with musicians, magicians, mystics, monkeys, spices, snake charmers, exotic foods, plays, cross-dressed belly dancers ... Craziness abounds here! Too cool."
