Where are the Lobster?

We went diving this weekend with our guests by the Channel Two Bridge in Islamorada. No lobster but we saw several Goliath Grouper. I guess they had a tasty dinner!  We also saw a Spotted Eagle Ray and several Tarpon. In the summer when the water is warm this area is good hunting. Due to the recent cold fronts the water temp is down to 74F. Maybe this drove the little critters deeper?

We spent the night anchored off Panhandle Key in Everglades National Park. A wonderful moonrise then Caribbean Pork Roast assuaged our disappointment. Of course the 7 knot downwind sail home was pretty nice too.
