Saturday boat time

Today was one of those picture perfect Keys fall days.......80 degrees, a spotlessly blue sky, and a gentle westerly breeze......and a great day to skip work and go play on the boat.

After sailing for a few hours I found myself near Molasses Reef, so I picked up a mooring buoy and snorkeled for a bit. No current, awesome visibility, and tons of fish to check out. I even saw a few sea turtles swim by, which was really cool. They move faster than you would think, and are much more graceful moving through the water than the name turtle might suggest.

On the way back to KL I stopped off at Dixie Shoal and practiced my anchoring technique. The bottom is hard sand and it took a few tries to get the hook to set, but eventually it did and I took the opportunity to lunch on some watermelon, pineapple, and Oreos. Heavenly!

After lunch I climbed the mast to enjoy the view, and got a nice pic of Moon and her shadow......

I hope all y'all are having a great weekend, too.
