We have decided to head for the Keys this winter rather than to the Bahamas.  Nancy wanted to be a bit closer to her mom who is recovering from heart surgery.  We also wanted to meet up with my daughter who will be in North Miami Beach for a Yoga conference next week. Plus, it's a chance to check out the Miami Boat Show.

My daughter & husband and kids (ages 1 & 3) arrived tonight and stayed with us aboard
Sno' Dog for 3 days while they attended Yoga classes at the nearby Kovins Conference Center.  By dinghy, it was a 5-min ride, by car, a 15-min drive from our dock at Haulover Park.
A very busy, (and cozy, with 6 people aboard) 3 days!

My daughter Charlotte with kids & husband on the beach.
  Charlotte celebrated her 34th birthday during our visit.
Naturally, many photos were taken during the three-day visit of daughter Charlotte and her two adorable daughters.  So many, in fact, that I had to create another page for them.  If you'd like to see more family pics, click here.
