Arrived in Marathon

Hi Everybody

We arrived in Marathon today about 1 pm or so after a short sail from Indian Key.  However I woke up at 4 am and really did not get back to sleep

On our last day in Coconut Grove, Joy went to visit the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, built by James Deering in the 1920s.  I went across the street to the Miami Science Museum. We both had a good afternoon.

Picture of the gardens at Vizcaya

On the first day of travel out of Coconut Grove we drove through Stiltsville, a bunch of "house" built in the middle of Biscayne Bay.  I need to do some research on why these houses were built but here is a picture of one of them

Just did he research, there were 27 structures built starting in the 1930s.  Now the remaining 7 structures are part of a National Park.  Visit by permits only.

That is it for now, time for dinner
