Titusville - Not every day is a good day...

The "all day view" from the boat - ugh! 
This is the third day we've had winds up to 30 kts (35 mph) in the marina but today the winds were joined with a driving rain. However, it's hard to complain when we've had such nice weather for the trip down. It's just that once we reached Titusville, the weather has turned bad. But then Titusville is where we're going to winter over for the holidays so it's not so bad since we don't have to move until January.

There are several other boats here with us that had intended going further south over the last few days but have reconsidered their plans given the weather. When cruising, the weather is king so you just sit it out. We've taken to playing Scrabble using the iPad which negates the requirement for a board - we just make moves and pass the iPad between us. We have a good supply of  books to read and Ann likes to do her pastels, essentially, everything we would be doing at home we can do on the boat. We get 35 channels of TV with our boat antenna and 5 Mbps internet free from the marina, it's a great set up.

On Wednesday we start tackling Obamacare.  It's a big change for us so we'll see where it leads. So along with the bills to pay, it's back to the grind tomorrow.
