March 31, 2015  Day 130 South for Winter
At Anchor, Rodriguez Key
Key Largo, FL

Approaching the Seven Mile Bridge
Our anchorage
Enjoying the sunset on our last night in the Keys

It seems appropriate to update the blog tonight – our 34th and last night in the Florida Keys.  We departed Faro Blanco Marina in Marathon this morning, went back under the Seven Mile Bridge past Boot Key and cruised for over 55 miles, mostly in the Hawk Channel. It was a good cruising day: sunny, warm, and fairly calm!  We are anchored with eleven other boaters in Rodriguez Key, located in Key Largo. We even enjoyed a beautiful unobstructed sunset.
We spent the past few days getting ready to depart. We had an air conditioner rep come to the boat and give us options on replacing the salon air conditioner.  As a result, we will have it done in Ft. Lauderdale later this week. We also took care of chart planning, cleaning, laundry, provisioning, and other repairs.  Joyce also made good use of the bread machine!

Tomorrow we will anchor in Miami.  We are ready to head north!
