Morning at the Oasis

Erika, John, Katy and I arrived by boat at Marlin Bay Marina’s watch tower on the Gulf of Mexico, and Rhonda drove the car here from Key West. We were happy to be back! We thoroughly enjoyed Marlin Bay when we were here in February 2020, so returning here feels a bit like coming home. We even ran into friends we had meet here last year, and are planning to get together with them soon.

Early this morning I walked the Marlin Bay grounds and took a few photos of this beautiful property.

Marlin Bay combines a well-appointed mid-sized marina and a top notch Caribbean style resort.

Well maintained grounds and walkways with lush landscaping connect the marina and the three-story hotel/condo units that overlook the inner yacht basin and the pool area.

At the center of the resort is a large pool and spa with plenty of seating and lounge chairs to enjoy the sunny days.

…and friendly staff at Joey’s pool bar are available for refreshments charged to our resort account.

The boater’s lounge/marina office is the best-arranged and furnished facility we have seen. I have used it already for Zoom meetings with clients.

Welcome to our February oasis in the Florida Keys!
