We are getting ready for another trip to the Florida Keys at the beginning of September. The diving and weather should be reasonable, the water temperature should be in the 80's, we should still be able to observe some of the summer marine life and colors with a possible winter transition. The sea should be calm and friendly. And as usual at Sharkey's, Skippers, and the Fish House the food will be great.
