The Islands of Marathon

Palm trees swaying in the breeze
on this island that I call home.
It's the tropical life in the heart of the Keys,
the islands of Marathon.

from "The Islands of Marathon,
by John Bartus, singer, songwriter and former mayor.

Saturday, Bev and I took the ferry over to Pidgeon Key for a music festival that was held for the benefit of the foundation that operates the island. Several local musicians performed. There was food, beer, snacks and watermellon and a raffle. It was a great day.
After we got back we went over to the Tiki hut at the marina where several boaters had gathered with their guitars for an impromptu jam. I borrowed a guitar and did a few songs and tried my best to harmonize with the other guys when they sang.
All in all, it was another great day in Paradise.
