BB: sorry for the pain, but Stuart, FL is a good place to have it if it's necessary.

Thanks. We are enjoying ourselves.

Looks like we'll be shoving off tomorrow and doing a layover in Melbourne.

David if you are still at Sunset Bay things can't be too bad. A great place to be, and Sailor's Return restaurant is really good. A good place to be stuck.

Ate there last night and the Pelican Cafe under the bridge is good. We also enjoy Osceola Cafe.

There are some stunning yachts in this marina. The wife was admiring a Defever 44 that shoved off this morning.

She is shopping downtown, determined to get me out of my Wal-Mart t-shirts...

I don't want to pop your bubble but "perfect" is only a very temporary condition. Pay attention to the workers so you can fix it the next time.

Very true, if it can be obtained at all.

I can work on it but really don't want to. Years ago I worked as a marine mechanic and before that an auto mechanic on race cars.

Left the field and never looked back.

Well, you are now officially a marine mechanic again.

OK, let's build some houses or condos. I have a Florida Certified Building Contractor license just waiting to be taken off inactive status.

I only have the residential license, inactive also.

We rep a builder in Flagler Beach, and we can't find enough reasonable priced lots to build on. We are down to 3-4 lots in Palm Coast.

It's a rainy morning and with the head inop, it's a long wet walk to the marina facilities.

We have liked this area since we first came to look at boats and have started tossing around the idea of opening an office here.

Even Molly wears a PFD. It makes it very easy to move her around to the different levels.
