Cape Coral Fl to Titusville Fl

26 December 2008 | Back at the Titusville Municipal Marina
Friday, December 26, 2008

I'd have loved to have stayed another day but we needed to be off chasing life again. We made it to Tarpon Springs to go to Hot Wire for our Wind Generator (so we can make more energy without using fuel). Cute place - they were having some sort of festival at the sponge docks and by the time we got there and got the wind generator, we didn't have time to make it to Orlando so called ahead to let them know we'd be there Monday instead and stayed for an early dinner at the Lime and Coconut. They have a deadly Mojo Pork sandwich slathered with garlic so hopefully I didn't breath to much on Wayne after that! What a variety of sponges there were along the docks and storefronts. Off again to Titusville where they have signs posted all over the marina "Do not pet, feed or water the Manatees". Ah the allusive manatees - maybe I'll get to see one before we leave Titusville. I'm told that they hang out there in the lee part of the marina eating the sea grass that wash in there. Tomorrow we start shopping and provisioning while we have a car. Rumor has it that pop, beer, and well.... Everything... is more expensive there. So we'll buy as much as we can store on the boat before we head for the Bahamas. We also need to hook up the wind generator and do some minor repairs and boat work before heading offshore too but for right now we need to focus on buying anything heavy that we don't want to carry (while we have our wheels).
