Titusville - donut day!

Happy Donut Day!
A tradition in our family is to always have fresh donuts for Sunday breakfast. As you might imagine, that's not always possible when anchoring out or in remote marinas. However, when a donut shop is within 1/2 mile of a marina, then it's fair game for Sunday morning. Such was the case this morning, only a 20 minute walk away was a "Donuts 4 U" shop which had excellent donuts as evidenced by the line up in the shop for their product.

Having satisfied the Sunday morning requirement, the rest of the day was spent enjoying the 80 degree weather. We've gotten back into Scrabble but we're using the iPad version where we can pass it back and forth after each turn, more convenient than setting up a board on a boat. Plus, it won't let you play words that aren't real words, they all must pass muster through the included Scrabble dictionary. That said, there are many "words" that most people would not recognize but are valuable additions to the Scrabble dictionary such as Qi and Za along with many others more familiar to longtime players. Needless to say, sometimes the play gets a little intense and we'll knock it off for awhile (we are such wonderful winners...)

Towards the mooring field
I have a few more chores to do before leaving for up north such as changing the oil in the outboard, perhaps on Monday depending on the level of ambition remaining.
