N 25 41.7 W 80 10.9 We anchored off Key Biscayne on the bayside just west of the Key Biscayne Yacht Club. After refueling in Marathon at Burdines, we motor-sailed in easterlies up to Rodriguez Key and stayed for a rolly night. The next morning we reached up to the channel entrance of Key Biscayne and the motored through the stilt houses on either side of the channel. Then we turned into the little cove on the west side of the island and dropped the hook just about sunset. The sail up was fabulous and the view here of Miami is very cool. The next morning we checked out the yacht club and wandered about the island. Not really a town, it's mostly a Miami suburb. Everyone we asked "where is the town center?" replied "I don't know - I just work here". We finally found a small strip mall with an upscale atheletic shoe store, high end cleaner, styling salon, bike store and gourmet food shop and deli. Pretty weird. The following day we came back to the club, had lunch, did laundry, and swam around in the pool. There are some benefits to membership...:). On the weekend this place goes crazy with boaters. They all scoot up to the sand bar and raft up together - playing music, swimming and, of course, drinking beer. I mean there must have been 500 boats of all sizes on Saturday. The noise was akin to a football game. Sunday, the party resumed and in the late afternoon three kite surfers kept buzzing our stern. Karen thought one of them was Tom Cruise. As he came by he gave us a big toothy grin and wriggled the "surf naked" hand signal. Those guys get some air!
