The Marqueses Keys

For our last outing on the pontoon boat we went on a long journey to the Marqueses Keys which was to have good reefs for snorkling. We were about 30 miles west of Key West and only 36 miles from Dry Tortugas. It was a smooth day just perfect to be on the water. We decided we needed to go again because if will be a few years before we get back down here and we just don't know if the oil spill in the Gulf will impact the reefs down in the Keys. It doesn't sound as if it will get this far down but one never knows what a hurricane or other storm could do to the spill.

Anyway, it was a perfect day and I had wished I had an underwater camera because the fish, turtles and coral were just beautiful. It was so serene, peaceful and graceful. WOW! some of the best snorkling I've experienced.

On the way back we were surrounded by porpoise, lots of them. It's like they wanted to entertain us. We cut the boat off and just sat there and watched them play and swim around us. It was meant for us to be there on that day for all those dolphin to bring us well wishes.

I can't thank Bobby and Sharon enough for including me in their trips on the boat. They were a God send to me on my journey.
