While my friends and family back home are getting pounded by a winter storm, I’m sitting on the deck listening to the palm trees rustle in the breeze enjoying my coffee. I fell in love with the Keys last winter for this very reason. Winters down here are perfect, highs around 80 and lows, Read More

Happy New Year from the Florida Keys! I hope everyone’s year ended on a great note & you achieved some of what you set out to do a year ago. If not, there’s no time like the present to reaffirm your goals! This entire year was dedicated to further simplifying our lives toward the, Read More

We’re officially Divemasters! The class schedule was more demanding than I expected it to be. I spent most of the last 8 days freezing cold, soaking wet and tired. You really hit a new level of saturated after 5 hours or more in a pool. I also had fun, learned a ton, met some, Read More

It’s hard to put into words how much I love diving, we both do. I love everything about it. Being on the boat, meeting new people & the way no two dives are the same. We haven’t been diving in two weeks because it’s been ridiculously windy and we’re both itching to get out, Read More

Diving, paddling, snorkeling, boating or fishing – almost everyone here has something to do with the water.

We’re not in the cone anymore so just tropical storm conditions are predicted for us. Hopefully it’ll be windy enough to knock the brown, Read More

It’s gorgeous in the Keys right now! You can feel the summer heat (and I do mean HEAT) backing off slightly during the day with evening temperatures being just right. The ocean is the calmest it’s been since we got here and there’s a beautiful full fall moon so we decided to head out, Read More

Like a switch was flipped, everyone is gone. Welcome to “no season” in the Keys, a season even slower than “low season.” Bayside Grille (one of our sunset hangouts) was almost empty last night. We walked right up to the bar at Skipper’s for dinner and had our pick of seats. If you’ve been, Read More

I’m now a certified “Dive Against Debris” diver! Finally an event that combines two of my favorite things; diving & my love for the environment. Rainbow Reef here in Key Largo holds a “Dive Against Debris” event each month, we’ll be regulars for sure. Check out this awesome video of one of their past, Read More
