Yesterday we traveled about 40 miles from Everglades City to Marco Island, Florida.
Unfortunately, we left the dock with the key fob for Everglade Isle RV Resort…But fortunately, Mark Lake devised a long-handled tool to hand the key fob to Rhonda, who drove downstream to meet us. Thanks, Mark and Rhonda!
Boating was a wonderful experience! Warm sunshine, light breeze, no waves, and wildlife along the way. We traveled slowly out the Indian Creek channel and then got up on plane until we reached the Marco River on the north side of Marco Island.
When we arrived at the Marco Island Marina, Rhonda met us at the dock to help us nestle R&R into her slip. We then celebrated Mary‘s 60th birthday with pizza on friend Marilyn‘s beautiful waterside patio at La Peninsula.
Now for the sad news…
Today, after careful consideration, we have decided to engage in Loopus Interruptus, creating some temporary “social distance” between us and our boat. We rented a U-Haul trailer and are loading it with bicycles, food, clothing, and other supplies. We plan to drive to Indiana and Michigan starting this weekend, to ride out this storm at home, closer to family. Stay tuned for more news!
