More than 100 locals showed up to celebrate the opening of the Grassy Flats Resort and Beach Club in the Middle Keys, pulling folks from Marathon and Islamorada. Principals Josh Gratton and Matt Sexton, and their families, enjoyed a laid-back evening of cocktails at the Barrel & Bale, the tiki bar, plus music and a spectacle of about five kiteboarders skating through white tipped wavelets. Guests also toured the resort’s rooms.
