Thursday Cove, Key Largo, FL 25º12.195N | 80º22.737W

We finally pulled the plug on Miami. After 11 weeks, we headed out Dinner Key Channel and turned south into Biscayne Bay with Miami smiling behind us -- for hours.

You know that invigorating feeling you get when you move into a new place? You get energized and start cleaning and decorating, nesting. That exact same thing happens when you move your whole house. Every time we pick up and move, even if it's 500 yards, we feel a surge of energy and lightheartedness.

Today, though we only traveled 32 miles, we are anchored in such a different place. It's a little indentation in  Key Largo called Thursday Cove. There is almost no wind. Flat calm and oh so quiet. Such a switch from the hustle bustle of Coconut Grove.

That's us, at the tip of the red arrow.
It's one of our favorite things. Just us and Cara Mia, anchored alone in a quiet cove. Sssshhhh.

I can't think of anything more relaxing. Looking forward to some peaceful sleep tonight!


  1. We love Key Largo. There's a funky little place to eat on the eastern side of the island, near the end. I can't recall the name, though. Not much help, I guess. Enjoy the quiet!
