Titusville - we visit the Merritt Island Mall

Florida likes to keep the dunes natural with lots of grass and plants - to help stabilize them
We rented a weekend car again for $40 (to be returned Monday) and went off to see the Merritt Island Mall, it's he biggest mall in the area. It also had a Barnes and Noble, the primary reason for the trip since Ann longed for a hard to get art magazine. The mall had nothing special that you don't see up north but it's big for this area.

So after the mall we paid another visit to the ocean which looked rather worked up, we're glad we're safely tucked in at Titusville. Heading north, we stopped at another citrus store and bought more of the freshly squeezed orange juice. It bears no resemblance to what you buy in a store, not even the ones advertised as "Not from Concentrate". The juice tastes totally different, much better. It also has not been pasteurized, just squeezed from their own grove oranges.

The locals sit and talk while the dogs interact, nice dog park
Ann took Hoolie over for his afternoon get together with the local dogs and he had a great time running all over the place. There's a local group of people that meet daily around 3:30 or so and Ann likes to be part of that. On Saturday we're headed to explore Orlando and a Brazilian restaurant, the kind that slice meat off a skewer, should be interesting.
