    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.

    It literally looked like a tornado of sand and water had hit their camp. The tent was collapsed, soaked, and covered with sand with Mari and Zoe huddled inside. The shade structure was blown down and several of the metal support poles had snapped. Pots, pans, chairs, towels, the camp stove, shoes, sunscreen, and food were strewn everywhere. We had left the lids off one or two of the plastic totes, and everything inside was floating ...

    ... be fun and we chose Marathon due to its strategic location between Key West and the ICW. We made the usual preparations the night before our departure. Just before we left, we discovered our sailboat friends were leaving for Marathon the same day albeit from a different marina so we made plans to hook up. Because Marathon was too far for either of us to travel in our respective boats at the speed at which we cruised, we all made the decision to anchor overnight in the Little ...
