Deltaville - a nice little town

Had eggs, cheese, 1 salmon filet, and some bacon left in the refrigerator so I whipped up an omelet with some onion for breakfast. It actually tasted quite good! Then it was pretty much a work day. I must have packed away enough food for a couple of years. After thinking about it though between the stores for the boat, then emptying out the pantry and cupboards at home (so I didn't have exploding things from freezing), I probably did store that much food. After loading crates and bags, and emptying the refrigerator (except for pop and beer) the day was pretty much over. I looked up the directions to Hayes where Pensky Truck is - that's the place where we'll get the truck to haul everything back home. It's a little over half an hour from here but I don't know if we can use the courtesy car to go there or not since it's only for use to the grocery store or for places IN the town of Deltaville. I guess we'll find out...
Still had a taste for pizza so I called Bella's to see where they are located. After walking a couple miles yesterday I wanted to see if they were much further, or if they delivered. They were about ¾ of a mile further down according to the gentleman that answered and said that they were worth the walk. Sigh... After consulting with Wayne, we decided a 5.5 mile walk for pizza this late in the day wasn't worth it and decided to go back to Taylors for dinner (they were a pretty entertaining place last night). They were only a mile & a half or two down the road and are one of the places that will come pick you up and drop you back off if you'd like to eat at their restaurant. We decided to try out the bicycles tonight - what a kick that was. I can't remember the last time I was on a bicycle - it has to be a good 20-30 years or so. The bike I selected was similar to one I had as a kid - a "one" speed, with the brakes on the pedals. By the time we got to Taylors, my legs felt rubbery and didn't want to go back together LOL but man it felt like I was flying down the road the unpaved and paved ones.
The evening was much more sedate and the folks that worked there were happy that things were back to normal. Bob (the bartender from last night) was there but this time in a customer capacity. He stopped by our table to chat before taking off. He finally managed to get a day off today LOL. He plays music and tends bar at another place across the bay. We'll have to stop back in there when we return in the fall and say hi. Tonight Wayne got the clams again and I tried their special - a large pork chop (oh so tender) smothered in an onion marmalade sauce that was incredible served with Alabama sweet potatoes, slaw, hush puppies and corn bread that was light and fluffy! Wow, heavenly...
The ride back to the marina was before sunset and I really enjoyed it.
Boy the boat looks a mess on the inside. There's hardly any room to move with all the packing going on .
