We aren’t supposed to still be in the Florida Keys. Oops! But of all the places to stick around for a bit, this seems like an ideal place to be. Where are we? Why are we still here? And will we ever leave?
Where are we?
We are currently in Marathon, Florida in the Middle Keys. Also known as cruiser heaven, Boot Key Harbor.
Never heard of Marathon? Neither had we. Most people know of Key West and Key Largo… but Marathon is like this little gem for liveaboard cruisers who plan to escape to the Bahamas or Cuba, or who decide to just stop cruising and live here year-round on their boat. We thought we might stay for a weekend; we’ve been here for two months.
