|Snagged from CrazyMarlins.blogspot.com|
Friday was free entrance day to Florida State Parks so we took advantage and headed to Bahia Honda State Park about 20 miles south of Marathon for some beach time. The water was 79 degrees. Warm!

We also encountered a Portuguese Man-of-war. Creepy little creature but very pretty colors.
These critters are dangerous! They can sting you from up to 165 feet away but the average tentacle length is 30 feet. If you want to know more click here.
The highlight of the day for me was snorkeling!
Ron loaned me his gear and Nan took me out into the water and ever so patiently taught me the basics of snorkeling. I later found out she was a life guard and swim instructor in a previous life so I was in very good hands.
Seriously, how long does it take to master those stupid flippers? I'm ready to go again!
