Company for my walk

Got up and took a walk this morning before Wayne got up. Thought I might get some pictures of the surrounding area. A couple of dogs decided to follow most of my walk barking at me but I ignored their yap yap grrrrrl, yap and kept snapping my pictures. After I got back to the boat Wayne was up so we walked into town - breakfast first at Brantley's - nothing to write home about but I did have toast :-) and eggs over easy. Hash browns were like McDonalds though - a clumpy mass (disappointment - should have gotten grits I guess). Then we went to the hardware for another bolt and tap for the davits (which turned out to be a weaker metal than the davits). After that we walked around Oriental to the various marinas, the Marine store, consignment store, then to the other side of town to the West Marine (sorry the parts aren't in yet), and the grocery store. When we got back to the marina, West Marine called to say our parts were in - so, took a walk back to West Marine, then back to the boat to finish working on the davits. I really like this place. If I had to say why, I'd have to say it the same way Mike (Sapphire) put it: "We like it for what it's not"...
