|Sunset Valentine's Day Marathon Marina
It’s been a couple weeks since my last post…sun, fun, wash, rinse, and repeat!! What more can I say!? However, we have travelled – so there’s that. Our reservations in Marathon expired on Feb 27th but in true McVey fashion and being the weather hounds that we are…the weather was EXCELLENT Feb 24-26 to make a run from Marathon the Fort Myers!!! So we did!! Our original plans secured a slip in Fort Myers Yacht Basin upon arrival…and the slip was available…but the pier was too short and we were not able to get off the boat!! Crazy!!
It took about an hour of phone calls on a Friday (2/26/2021) afternoon before The Marina at Edison Ford confirmed we could come in “but we might have to move you around”. We completely understood (weekend, spring break and no reservation) but at least we could get off the boat! So we untied and left the Yacht Basin. YAY!! And bonus…several Loopers were there – Doug Out, Gypsies Palace, One Eye Dog, Wicked Cool, Jo Ca – it was like a family reunion!!
I’ll let the pictures tell the story…
