The horror

We cruised from Indian Key, a nice anchorage, to Little Shark River. Another beautiful day on the water.

Little Shark is in the southwest corner of the Everglades. Very remote. So remote, there's no internet, no 3G, not even cell phone reception! The horror! No internet? No e-mail? No cell phone? No FACEBOOK? We were relegated to listening to music and talking!

Well, thank God it was only one night. We survived. I'm not sure I can do that again.

Actually it was a beautiful evening. The marinated pork loin was ready to go on the grill as soon as we dropped anchor. A tasty salad & garlic mashed potatoes with shiraz completed the feast. Fish jumping, pelicans diving and a spectacular red sunset accompanied by some Gershwin piano. Other selections included KD Lang, Marvin Gaye, REM, Seal and Tom Waits wrapped things up.
