Titusville - At last!

We are NOT here - it's what we missed, Oh darn...  the view out our driveway today
We took three days to reach Titusville, always a step ahead of the storms from the north. Since I was prohibited from driving for 6 months due to my pacemaker per New York law, Ann did all the driving and we broke the trip up into three days. Ann did great, I was just a passenger for this trip. As was our custom, we stayed at Red Roof Inns since they accept pets at no additional charge so Hoolie had a home at night by us.

We were discussing finding some glass on my deck - I guess from the deck light,
although how it ever was broken is beyond me
The change in weather was dramatic! We left just ahead of a major snowstorm and found the temperatures in the low 80's when we arrive in Titusville. It sure feels nice to be back in warm weather even though it's not Key West (wait until next year!).

Ann and I received a nice surprise upon our arrival, a bottle of wine and card from Rick Lamb and Elizabeth Yanow.
in appreciation of help along the way on the ICW, how nice
Our boat in good shape although it needs a major cleaning, both inside and out. Now I will spend time debugging AIS on Aqua Map as well of NMEA output to the app as well. Once the beta is debugged, it will be released to the world with a bunch of new capabilities.

We plan on spending all of February and March just here, resting and enjoying the warm weather before heading north again in April and testing all the shallow spots for reporting in Waterway Guide and on my Facebook page. For now, it's a day of rest and then provisioning on Thursday and boat cleaning to follow, oh joy....

Awesome! So glad you made it back to FL. Can't imagine Ann doing all the driving with you riding shotgun, she must be a saint. Rest, relax, enjoy the warmer weather - will be getting much warmer very soon down there. All our best to Hoolie, look forward to updates on the boat, how you're making out, and your travels north when the time comes. About 3" of ice here in Connecticut this morning. Enjoy!
