How do you know when it's sunset in Marathon - someone across the harbor blows a very loud horn that looks like the one in the Ricola Cough Drop commercial every day at sunset. Neat.
This is also a tradition in Swan Creek anchorage at sunset. We have a horn whic mimicks s conch to use too because I cannot for the life of me make any sounds with any of the conches I have here at home ( picked most of them up on the beach in Sanibel, Florida where we have a condo.
