Passing on Marathon

Marathon, 7 Mile Bridge

I’m sorry, but I just can’t write a post about our time here in Marathon/Boot Key Harbor. You know the old saying, ‘If you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all’?. That’s kind of the case that I’m dealing with here. Trust me, I could go on about the many reasons we did not like this stop, but I won’t do it. Not even necessarily because of the above adage, but because we are probably the 1% of cruisers that aren’t completely in love with this harbor, and I’m not ready to start getting that kind of hate mail just yet. So for now I’m just going to leave it alone. In fact, just to show a little bit of gratitude and keep you from dumping your garbage on me the next time you see me walking down the street (or in your daydreams since chances are, we may not meet), I do have one nice thing to say about this place. If you find yourself anchored outside of the chaos they like to label as a harbor, you can catch some amazing sunsets overlooking 7 Mile Bridge.

  1. Clearly I’m having a *very* productive day, reading back through all your awesome posts 😉

    Just wanted to say, make that 2% — we couldn’t wait to get out of there, especially after we made the mistake of sticking around for a month! (I flew home for 10 days leaving Jon to deal with the codgers yelling “slow down! slown down!” as you enter the precious idle zone or the VHF nets discussing who’s in jail this weekend).

    SO hard to adjust to after the relative rule-less-ness of Central America!!

    And I’m really glad to hear we aren’t the only ones with a little hate-on for Marathon 😛

  2. I’m so happy to know that we’re not the only ones that didn’t care for Marathon! I thought I was going to get voted out of the cruising community for that one. 🙂
