Titusville - Black Point Drive, Playalinda Beach

It looks ordinary - but the donuts are extraordinary
We did see a few birds
For once we had a day without rain and high winds. It was a Sunday, so naturally, we started out with the best donuts on the ICW at "Donuts 4 U", rated at 4.8 stars out of 5 by customers. It doesn't look like much on the outside and the inside does not improve on expectations - but then you taste the donuts! We enjoy them.

Just a beautiful beach
With the beautiful day, we decided to try Black Point Drive once again but the birds were still not in evidence. I think they all went on strike. Well, how about the beach, we thought, Playalinda to be exact. It's out in the same general direction and the beach goes on forever. The waves were really crashing in from all the recent high winds. What I didn't expect was how close one of the NASA launch pads was to Playalinda. It would make a great watching site if they allowed the drive to remain open during a launch. I think they usually close the drive, though.

A NASA launch pad was really close - the three side towers are to protect the central launch
assembly from lightning strikes
This coming week will be a real workweek in getting the boat ready for our absence over the next two months. When we left the boat in Deltaville, we had a dehumidifier running and set at 65% humidity for then it cut in. With that, we had no mildew. We will try the same thing here in Titusville and hope for the same result.
