Last year was pretty tough job-wise, but now the “Job that must not be named” is over. In celebration Mrs. CapnRehab and I spent 10 days in the Florida Keys. We did a few touristy things, but mostly chilled out and took it easy.
We found a house on Cudjoe Key using www.homeaway.com. We’ve used Homeaway 5 or 6 times. We’ve stayed in Orlando, Indian Rocks Beach FL, Lido California, and now the Florida Keys. Every time has been way better than staying in a motel – However, if you use it be sure and check it out thoroughly before sending any money.
This was the view from the upper deck on the only evening the wind dropped below 10 mph- to zero.

We also went kayaking. I found an abandoned boat fender in the mangrove trees. Mrs. CapnRehab offered to tow it, but it slowed her down too much so I stuffed it in a cargo bin. It will come in handy on the Catalina!
See that sailboat in the background? It seems pretty normal, but on our way back we went by the front. The front is not pointed, it’s flat. Strange.
We also bicycled around Key West, going to Kermit’s Key West Lime Shoppe where Mrs CapnRehab had her slice of Key Lime pie and mine too! (I’m not that big a fan of graham cracker crust in a pie).
We also went snorkeling on a sail/snorkel trip. I got some video using my GoPro. Wish me luck turning it into something worth watching. I took video during the kayak trips, but that will definitely not make it into a movie. Apparently there is some skill required when filming with a camera mounted on your head.
Here is my first GoPro Movie. Don’t judge me too harshly. Click to see a Cudjoe Key Sunrise.
I’m in Orlando another week. Any of my Tampa buddies that want to get together this week let me know. I lost everybody’s phone numbers when my phone deleted my address book last year. Call me soon!
Once I get back home I’ll be starting the Sunfish restoration, so stay tuned for that.
