Cubans mmmm....

04 February 2009 | Fort Lauderdale, FL
After making blueberry/raspberry muffins for breakfast we decided to catch the bus into town to buy some last minute groceries before heading off to Miami tomorrow. The trolley that drops you in front of the Publix doesn't run except on Thursdays to Sundays so we had to take the bus that stops about a ΒΌ of a mile from the mall. This means - I'm not buying a lot of heavy items... I love the Publix store here - it's in the middle of a large outdoor shopping mall that has Boater's World, Wine World and a host of other stores with a fountain in the middle of the parking lot. I definitely bought another Cuban sandwich and we had that for lunch once we got back to the boat. Mmmmmmm... I love a good sandwich and this one gets high marks on my sandwich meter!

They're setting up a large tented area in the parking lot of the marina for a Bill Fish tournament this weekend and it takes up most of the parking lot. I guess this marina has sponsored the tournament for several years so it should be quite busy here this weekend. Hopefully they'll have good weather for it - another cold front is moving into the area tonight and there are freeze warnings up all over the state (are you paying attention Wendell LOL? I can hear Laura laughing too). I watched them assemble part of the tent while doing laundry. They have an awesome laundry facility here with plenty of washers and driers and large folding tables. They actually have very nice and secure facilities here. You'd expect that though since they cater to the mega-yachts.

Steaks, salad and French bread for dinner along with some TV news and reading before bed. I have time for a computer game or two too LOL.
