The Marquesas Keys are several small low keys that encircle a large shallow lagoon. We arrived on the west side where there's enough water for Susurra. The lagoon entrance is too shallow and the shoaling around the south, east, and north are pretty bad. The place is gorgeous, isolated, and extremely peaceful after the raucous times in Key West. The first night's sunset was fabulous and as it got darker, we could see lightning on all horizons. As it got later in the evening, the wind picked up and the light show was right on top of us. Rock and roll, light show. The next morning all was peaceful again. That night, repeat performance with extra sauce! The winds howled at over 50 knots, the lightning was almost constant, and the water boiled and foamed all around us. Some fisherman dragged their anchor and while we watched them heading back upwind, we started to drag at quite a fast rate. I went up to the pulpit and dumped a ton of chain out and she caught. We were in 12 feet of water with 120 feet of chain - yeow! The next day we went exploring the lagoon and walking on shore. That night, another howler with lots of lightning. We weren't getting a lot of sleep out there so we decided to head out for another key.
