On the water in Key Largo

We’re not sailors, the closest we come to it is being on a dive boat, but we decided to book accommodation through airbnb that is a BOAT, yes really!  We’re staying on a sailboat in the Pilot House Marina in Key Largo.

And it’s actually working out quite well, for us two landlubbers! The boat has a comfortable captain’s bedroom, and a small 2nd room with 2 V bunks, that would work for a couple of small children. There’s a kitchen, and even a bbq on deck!

If we don’t feel like cooking, the Pilot House restaurant is just steps away,

and we can hear the live music every evening from our deck. There’s also lots of fun signs in the bar:

It’s really quite beautiful and peaceful.  We’ve found lots of little cubby-holes to store our stuff on the boat, and we’re settling in quite nicely.

We walked around the marina, and a couple of streets just outside, and took a few fun snaps of the local street art, hope you enjoy them!
