Titusville - We meet Paul of Ursa Major

Paul from Ursa Major and Ann (of Fleetwing)
We got our weekend car this morning form Hertz since Enterprise is no longer offering the deal for $12.99/day. I think the Enterprise thinks they can charge more, they used to be the least expensive but they've grown into the largest car rental company in the US. I suppose it's whatever the market can bear. For us, it's on to Hertz now.

After our usual trip to Walmart for groceries, we found Paul looking over our boat so we introduced ourselves and traded stories. He will be leaving before us going north so I asked if he would post anything out of the ordinary on our Facebook page concerning the ICW. It always pays to have as much knowledge as possible on your way north. The ICW is changing this year due to all the dredging, more so than at any time in the past eight years so it ought to be an interesting trip.

We had intended eating out at Shiloh's but when we arrived around 6:00, the parking lot was overflowing! The cars flowed over to the beach. I could just imagine the scene inside the restaurant with all those people. Tonight was popular due to their "all you can eat" fried fish special. I think it's best to avoid the restaurant on a Friday night.

On Saturday, we pay out usual visit to Black Point Drive in the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. We heard there's a lot of spoonbills this year so we'll take a look.
