Gone Fishin'

We've been having a lot of fun on the water lately! My relatives visited from Jupiter, FL and brought their boat down. We went snorkeling and riding around a lot. Snorkeling in the mangrove roots is very awesome! Lots of little tropical fish, snappers, and we even found a free-swimming nudibranch (a sea slug with beautiful bright colors)!
We also went out on a rented boat with some new friends who taught us about trolling in deep waters. Caught a nice Mahi-Mahi! He was very yummy!

Set up in Key Largo

We have arrived in Key Largo and are parked at our new home, Pennekamp State Park. The water here is a little browner than the water we got used to last fall at Bahia Honda. But now we have a boat so we can putter right out to the ocean very easily! We'll be experimenting with snorkeling and diving in the area when we're not working at the park!
