We went to National Pig Day this afternoon here in Marathon. The stuffed Pig restaurant here across the road from the Marina had it and we went around 12:00 today with our friend, Ray who has the same sailboat as us and is moored just in front of us here in Boot Key Harbor. We had met him when we were in St. Marys, Georgia. They had delicious pork barbecue and hot dogs and hamburgers for sale there. All you wanted to eat for $15.00. The most fun was watching the pig races. They had three races. First the little white piglets raced, then, the black small pigs and the funniest was the huge pot belly pigs. They did not do anything but try to make it walking around the track. It was exciting and the crowd were cheering the pigs on.
Nelson and I left about 2:30 after the second race and walked about a mile down the road to the Home Depot. Nelson needed to get some straps for the dinghy. Yes, we got our exercise for today. We started out with beautiful weather this morning with 85 degrees, but the winds started blowing 30 plus knots and now it is 58 degrees and much cooler. We may not get to leave and head west until Wednesday.
