We´ve arrived in Miami after a few days trip from Key West through Hawks Channel (inside the reef) exploring some of the Florida Keys along the way. Stefan, Axels friend from Germany has been sailing with us since Key West. We caught a spotted mackerel in Hawks Channel and had a lovely BBQ on Freefall; stopped at a couple of the Keys including Marathon Key, snorkeling at Sombrero Key´s reef finishing with an overnight trip outside the reef, arriving in Miami yesterday morning. The wind was very good to get here so we took advantage of it and between that, and the Gulf current outside the reef, we whizzed along at 7-8knots during our overnight trip.
We have anchored in a nice little spot next to Sunset Harbour Marina where Axel´s friend Art keeps his boat. The 3 of us had good fun exploring the many bars and cafes around Miami beach yesterday afternoon and evening, and meeting all sorts of ´interesting´ people...
we´re off to explore the beach today...
Stefan leaves on Sat 12th and we have one week left to get things sorted before we fly home on the 19th.
Hope you´re all keeping well and that its as nice and sunny there as it is here!?!
