Lost in Paradise Harbour Cay Club

Typical sunset, Marathon, Florida...
We have been lost in the peace, and the beauty of Harbour Cay Club, HCC a small paradise in Marathon, Florida. We have been here since Dec 16 and we will depart tomorrow, Jan 21. We will move back north to Miami where we will stage up for the Miami Boat Show and our friends Judith and Haakon arriving from Denmark. In the mean time, please forgive us for not blogging and posting updates, but the time here is priceless. We skipped last year due to our IPY refit program, but decided to return here for Christmas 2014. What a joy it has been. Good friends Craig and Liana came down for Christmas and rented the condo, the best deal on the east coast! We toured Key West and sailed Florida Bay and had a wonderful time together.

The HCC club had a great Christmas Dinner and a New Years Day Dinner, thanks to the wonderful owners of Harbour Cay Club. Radeen and I both agree, there is no place like HCC that we have found from Maine to Key West. This place is very special, hands down. The property owners are so kind and so friendly making you feel welcome in their home marina. It is a 24 slip marina, where there are only about 9 slips for rent. The rest are filled with the fine yachts of the liveaboard owners. This place is a small and peaceful. It is  a beautifully kept gem that is private. You are a guest in the home of the owners and the 2.5 acres grounds, clubhouse, lanai, tiki hut, bathhouse, and landscaping show their pride of ownership. We feel honored to call the owners our friends. We feel at HOME here at Harbour Cay Club, what a great month it has been. We love it here! We already booked in for two months next year as we plan an Island Packet Fleet sail from HCC to Cuba 2016! So plan to come on down and Harbour Cay Club and join our fleet. You will LOVE it here.

Here are my best photos of the month.....enjoy...

OMG I can see it now... Hayden with a snifter of Brandy and a big Ole Cuban in his mouth.

H&R touring San Juan in a 1955 Chevy...

The possibilities are endless. Cuba will never be the same once HayRay hit the beach!

Love the Pelican shot. For such filthy beasts they sure are photogenic.

Liked the shot of the Ms Maasdam too. We sailed the Panama Canal on her when she was brand new.

Party on Garth!
