Coast Guard Escort
As we approached the outer buoys of Key West, I spotted a small craft heading at full speed toward us. This was not (initially) a comforting sight - if you're American, I'm sure you understand.
However, the boat passed us briefly, performed a tight U-turn, and escorted us through the channel. Just your friendly, neighborhood Coast Guard.
Nor was this an exercise in excess. Later, as we prepared to leave, a large private sailing vessel approached Holiday and was promptly intercepted and escorted away by a Coast Guard vessel similar to this one. The gun mounted on the front is (I presume) not just for looks.
I feel safer now. Thanks, CG!
