Islamorada Key, FL 24º55.55N | 80º38.18W

We woke up this Thursday morning in a stunningly peaceful Thursday Cove. Our night was dark (no Coconut Grove/Miami lights), dead calm, cool and just plain perfect. Aaaahhh.

As we headed south toward Islamorada, we heard, "Cara Mia, Cara Mia, Kajon," on the VHF. Our dear friends Joe and Deb on Kajon were heading north to the very spot we were targeting.

The Kajons headed to shore.
It was great to see them and their passenger, Dave, from Password, who we met along the ICW last year.

(Another thing we heard on the VHF today: Coast Guard, Coast Guard. This is Sea Dog reporting verbal threats from fishing vessel Praise the Lord. We have a family with children aboard!)

One of the gratifying things about cruising is the ability to visit friends along the way -- or sometimes to happen into the same place at the same time. This happened last week in Miami, when our friends Paul and Susannah and their son Townes from Kill Devil Hills were in town for the sailboat show.

Great to see them!
Love you, Townes!!
Chartering with Townes five years ago in the British Virgin Islands.
