Looking For Travis
Originally uploaded by sbisson.

While in Fort Lauderdale we visited the Bahia Mar Marina, the location for the home of John D. MacDonald’s hero Travis McGee, in the houseboat Busted Flush.

The marina’s been renovated recently, and the plaque at slip F-18 is currently in the dock office (which was closed). But we found the slip, and the rather fancy yacht that uses the real/fictional location.

Another literary pilgrimage complete.
