Titusville - We provision

The main thoroughfare - calm now but it was blowing to 25 kts this afternoon
We rented a car for the weekend to make provisioning easier and to do some sightseeing. We were hoping to view a launch from nearby Cape Canaveral but it has been delayed for three weeks, far longer than we'll be here.

So I picked up the rental car this morning went off to visit the nearest Walmart. Say what you will about Walmart but they have the best prices and biggest selection of any store around. All the cruisers love Walmart. After amazing some of the shoppers on the amount of groceries we bought for just two people, we packed everything into the truck and headed back to the marina.

The main office - bicycles are very popular with the cruisers, we don't have one
We took advantage of the weekly rate of only $6/ft and will be here until next Thursday. The monthly rate is only $10/ft but we won't  be staying that long. We had intended picking up crew on Monday but it looks like that will not happen due to illness. Perhaps we'll meet up in St Augustine, at least we're hoping for that. Meanwhile, Hoolie reconnected with all his friends at the dog park and Ann sat down at the table for the 3:00 pm chat hour with the usual suspects. We do enjoy Titusville.
