From the time I caught my first yellowtail in Islamorada as a kid to producing my first-ever photoshoot at Stiltsville for WAVE Magazine, the ocean has always been a great backdrop for my personal and professional milestones. But it hasn’t always been all sun and glory. A few years ago, my wife and I set sail to tour new real estate offerings at Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo. The journey there was magical, and once we arrived, we feasted on oysters, shrimp, lobster and more than a few clinks of champagne. Then on the return, the engine started smoking and we were left bobbing and nauseated in the middle of the ocean while the crew tried to figure out what to do. A few Dramamine tablets (and plenty of buckets) later, we were back underway and docked just 4 hours behind schedule. Phew! Life on the high seas definitely comes with its fair share of surprises!
