As a resident of the Marquis located at 1100 Biscayne Bay for over 3 and half years, I wanted to share the fact that the ecosystem in the FEC slip is thriving. I’ve attached a photo of a dolphin family and baby, I see frequently when walking my dogs. There are at least 2-3 manatee that use the slip for shelter and sunbathing during early morning. The local “shrimpers” troll during full moon events at the entry of the slip.
We are all meeting at the slip "Occupy Museum Park" on June 14th by utilizing it as a public space: enjoying picnicking kayaking, boating, etc. We meet by the boat slip. The Coast Guard tall ship EAGLE will be in the slip that weekend. You can get a tour of the former Nazi built warship and learn about its history, like how we ended up with it.
