Mexican Train

Yesterday was a great day in Marathon. The sun was out, people were doing stuff and I had a nice long walk to the post office.

Joy went to yoga class at 10 am. Yoga is three times a week, Mon, Wed and Friday.

In the late afternoon we walked over to Banana Bay to visit Steve and Linda. Had a refreshing dip in the pool at Banana Bay and met Danny, who works at Home Depot and a younger couple from Minnesota who were very glad they have escaped the minus 20 degree weather back home.

Steve prepared an excellent dinner of Portobello mushroom burgers, potatoes, and squash.  In his next life he could be a chef at a restaurant

Then on to the big event of the day, Mexican train dominoes.  I had to spend some time on a PBE directors meeting on the phone where we approved the $6.5 million loan to renovate 400 Memorial Drive.

After the call we proceeded and for the first 90 minutes the scores were extremely close for this game, less than a 20 point separation between first and fourth places.  Then Linda caught fire and blew everybody out of the game with two quick lay downs. The rest of us were caught with big point totals and the game was over. We stopped at 10:30 and walked back to the marina. On board by 11:15 pm.

The weather is supposed to get a little less windy and less waves. Thinking of going out Wed afternoon and night and anchoring on the Gulf side of Marathon with the Frankos.  Would be good for High Spirits as we could put some charge into our batteries by motoring an hour or so.  Or sailing.

Today is more walking to West Marina, a seminar on navigation computer programs at 1 pm and an Abacos talk at 4Pm. Then Butch and Debbie are coming for dinner.
