We must bid Adieu - parting is such sweet sorrow.

Our time here has come to an end - it has been fun to discover a new community of boaters, and friendly townspeople - but time has come for us to move on.  We have been busy trying to cram in the last few places we have wanted to eat at, and one of those places, was Chef Larry's.  

We heard about it from some locals that stopped by while strolling the docks.  We drove by it at least once a day and wondered what it was all about.  Open for lunch weekly, but open for dinner on Friday and Saturdays, but only by reservation and seating limited.  We got in last Saturday and it was all that "they" said it would be.

Waiting with others for our 7:00 reservation.  You are allowed to bring your own libations.  Rick is carrying our designer Publix wine bag.

  Others had giant liquor wagons in tow.

If you are a newcomer, or someone of importance - Chef Larry requests a photo opp.  I believe we are the famous people from Titusville Marina 
or the Newcomers from Titusville Marina - ??? Whichever, he wanted a pic.

Closing time - Chef Larry's

A car is necessary here if you are spending a lengthy amount of time - otherwise the Marina does have a Cruiser Van that will take you to just about anywhere you need to go.  Historic downtown is within walking distance - check out Cafe Chocolat.  Rick on Tourist  - KFC is a block away.  

They are trying to revive the area.  A couple of motels have remodeled themselves into their previous grandeur.  Wades Motor Inn is one and Siesta Motel is the other. 

The other side of the Color TV sign says Ice Cold A/C.  Very cute boutique motels.

A reason to come back - we did no get a chance to eat at the Moon- Light Diner.

Deb's sister Joni (the beauty on the right),  Her husband David and his father Al and sister Suzi were here for the weekend, attending a wedding.  We joined them in Lake Mary for a fun night at Liam Fitzpatricks - alcohol may have been involved.

We also had a great visit on Broulee and dinner at Dixie Crossroads - another fine dining experience in Titusville.

In project news - we have a new dishwasher.

and she works for her supper.

Happy St. Patrick's Day


Deb had a great trip to the Wrinkle Ranch AKA - Queen Valley, AZ to visit her parents and to watch what was supposed to be "Jan's last Variety Show".  I've been to at least 3 of Jan's last shows but was fairly certain this one would be her last.  Mom is the stage manager for the production and on our way home from the show (after a couple of glasses of wine) her and Jan were already talking about the possibility of another show next year.

  I apologize in advance for the following video.

Jan, another great show - can't wait for next year's "last show"

We are wrapping up things here in Titusville and will be moving the boat further south next week. Rick has spent the past few weeks repairing and varnishing teak, installing new wiring and lights in the engine room and keeping Izzy happy walking the docks in search of Barbara.  For those of you that don't know Rick - he needs to have a project to work on or he's not happy.  That's why a boat and a 120 year old house - help keep Rick, a happy guy.   

Izzy taking her two favorite things for a walk on the docks - Rick and Rudi.  

We have enjoyed it here - great people, nice quiet marina and great parks for walking Izzy.  

You just can't beat the sunrise here.

Deb's sister and brother-in-law will be in the area this weekend  - looking forward to their visit.

Izzy's Playdate

Meet Barbara - Izzy's new playdate.  She hangs out at the Marina waiting for Izzy to stroll the docks.  Actually she is waiting for anyone to wash their boat - they love drinking freshwater from a hose - they are fun to watch - enjoy.

Good Morning Izzy!

Heading to the Wrinkle Ranch - more on my Arizona fix to follow.
