Titusville - Donuts and Shiloh's

Seafood Platter, too much to eat
We had intended eating at Shiloh's Friday night but was discouraged when we saw the crowds for the all-you-can-eat fish dinner they have every Friday. So we hoped for less crowded conditions Saturday night. Arriving, we found the place packed as usual but we had reservations this time and were seated without delay.

This is about 1/5 of the restaurant - it's huge
Their menu is varied but in places of this type, you order what they are good at, not necessarily what you would best want. With that, we ordered the fried seafood platter with shrimp, fish, scallops, clams, french fries, onion rings and assorted slices of bread. It was good for a shore restaurant. Our standard of excellence is Lenny's in Branford which has appeared in the New York Times list of best shore restaurants. There you can get full-bellied clams. I've never found them outside of New England. We just had the clam strips at Shiloh's, adequate and good if you've never had the full-bellied type.

The same couple has been here ever since we've come down the ICW
The next morning we had our usual donut treat from Donuts 4U, the best donut shop along the ICW. The donuts are the usual varieties but what makes them stand out is the execution. It's hard to describe the difference between ho-hum and wonderful in donuts but they are on the wonderful end of the spectrum. For this coming week, it's back to improving Fleetwing and debugging the Aqua Map beta some more.
