    Rustic stay with perks; a gem of a bargain

    As a solo traveler, the cottage was such a luxury for the price. The cottage comes with a queen bed, TV, shower, microwave and utensils. It has a very cheerful atmosphere inside and outside. Your car has its own space right next to the cabin. Some updates are needed for the bathroom but all in all, it's a great bargain find. Marathon is a great place as a base. The plus is the great fish eateries along Hwy 1.

    We had to head back to get the car but before we left Key West we wanted to check out another beach that was signposted and although at this point it was dark, Dan said it looked like a nice white sandy beach, so that was on the agenda for tomorrow.

    The next day, as you can guess, we went back to the nice white sand beach, Smathers Beach, in ...

    ... crew and wrecked cars. Very sobering. The traffic got going again, just as Homer started going on about toll roads and got us confused. I started following my nose and trying to read the signs. Convinced we were heading west rather than south, Rach and I then realised that due to the road works Homer couldn't recognise which road we were on, Doh! As quick as we got lost, we saw a sign for the Keys and Homer started talking sense again. We were back on ...

    Today we went to Bahai Honda. Another beautiful sunny day.!We went to the far end of Sandspur Beach. On the way to our spot we saw a man bring up a starfish to show his kids. It was huge! The starfish went back after having it's photo taken. The water is very shallow and very warm.We went for a wade and a ray came up to see us ! I don't know the kinds yet, but ...

    We are docked at the city's main marina where boaters come year after year and stay, usually, on mooring balls. Since the marina is supported by taxpayers, its facilities are available to the public. Today ...

    ... expect. It took around 40 minutes to get to the first of our three stops and we geared up with our snorkel, mask and flippers and jumped into the nice warm Carribean waters. I couldn't believe how warm the ocean is here, its much different than swimming in Lake Minnewanka! There were plenty of medium and small fish swiming around the coral which looked like you were in a giant tropical fish tank. Our other stops were at another section of the reef which had quite a few ...
