Dinner Key Marina - Miami, FL
Well here we are at Dinner Key Marina, owned by the City of Miami. The marina is on the south side of he City and actually in Coconut Grove. After arriving today, we took the dinghy over to the office, and took a walk around town.
Found great brownie fudge at Johnny Rockets, so we had desert before dinner.
Joy found a couple of hair salons, but the price was double of what she normally pays, so no appointments were made.
The marina here is cheap, about $22 per day, which includes tax. The have a shuttle service from 9 am to 5pm, and a pump out boat that goes around. We will be pumped out before we leave for Key West.
Tried to sail down the coast line today, but no wind so we had to use the motor.
Joy got real close to a large container ship(see pictures). It was a little scary as we could have been pinned in between two large vessels, but she pulled it off and we had no problems.
Met a delivery captain today, Debby Thomas, 31 years in the business. She has been here at Dinner Key for a couple of months.
Jen and family arrive tomorrow, they should be glad to get out of the snow. They have no power, should be on by the time they get back on Feb. 1
