I was lucky enough to teach my first yoga class at the Marathon Community Park. I was a bit nervous, but thankfully it was like riding a bike! Being outside with a gentle breeze, bright sun, and chirping birds made the class very special. To make it more special, I volunteered to turn the class into a fundraiser for a well known couple in the harbor. I don't know them whatsoever, but from stories shared, they are wonderful, helpful and gracious to others in need. This was my way of giving back. We raised $91 thanks to the generosity of the 12 students that showed up! That was a lot of fun!
We continue to check out the local scene, live music, and cheap happy hours. Sometimes we must hide out aboard Aletheia to avoid spending too much money and consuming too many calories. We row through the harbor waving to our neighbors, inviting complete strangers over for sundowners (aka alcoholic beverages) and trading boat cards with other cruisers. Some people roll in to Boot Key anticipating just a few nights stay, a 1-week or a 1-month stay before sailing to their next destination or before heading home, depending on the season. We've met people that came for 1 week, been here 7. Others came for a month and have been on the ball for 5 years. LOL! Entrepreneurs have been born here, families have brought babies home from the hospital. I'm beginning to see positive aspects of this lifestyle and the variety of wonderful people to meet and stay in contact with for years to come! I'm sure our paths will cross again!
