On a Slow Boat to Key West
After more than 10 days at sea, we finally arrived in Key West and dropped the anchor at 9:00 p.m last night. We had heard that it couldn't be done, that you couldn't make it to Key West from Kemah, Texas, in one straight shot. Vlad, David and I beg to differ. It just takes eleven days instead of seven.
I'll give a detailed post of our trip tomorrow. There will be plenty of tales about the endless close haul, storms at sea, stowaways, baby dolphins, everything that broke, surprise visitors, the Russian, and a nearly averted mutiny over oranges, but for now I really want someone to make me breakfast. A really, really good breakfast. With oranges.
