Those are the unexpected experiences that last a lifetime and make cruising so much fun.

Way back in the 70s there was a family that made their way around New harbor with bakery goods, including portuguese sweet bread. We froze it for the trip back south.

Man of man that was some good stuff. And in Bimini their loaf of Bahamian bread fresh from the oven and split in half with some butter lasted shorter than a glass of rum punch.

Speaking of Block Island, they would have the Barber Shop Festival there , which was another interesting memory of the island. I don't know if that still takes place. Neat place to visit for sure..


Oh almost forgot Thunderbolt Marina along the ICW east of Savannah would bring you a dozen of fresh Krispy Kreme donuts with the morning paper when you stayed with them overnight. Now that hit the spot on those cool fall mornings before daybreak with the first cup of Java.

Medical house calls are very much coming back in, especially for the elderly. There are doctors groups now throughout the country. The other group they're becoming popular for is executives.

There are many benefits. For the elderly who struggle to get out it's obvious. But even more it's avoiding all the sickness in a doctor's office and lab. For others, it's just convenience. Plus telemedicine hitting too.

Great way to write off the boat as a business expense...


A friend of mine had a practice in Port Angeles and a practice on San Juan Island. He used his private plane to fly back and forth. He was able to write off most of the cost of ownership of the plane (not sure I'd be that aggressive...). I think the primary reason for the Island practice was that write-off. His patients knew to check the weather before going to the office. If conditions weren't VFR that morning, he wouldn't make it.

But on with our story: 0715, rubbing sleep from eyes, initiating coffee process, and I hear a rap on the hull and a "yoo-hoo!" Alongside is an aluminum skiff occupied by a very nice lady with a picnic basket full of cinnamon rolls for the modest price of $3.50 each.

While fumbling for my wallet, I ask her how many people decline her offer. "Nearly none." I was probably going to spend another night here...but now it's a certainty.

Did I mention they were warm? ...with walnuts?

I would love to have a little business like this. I've often thought of converting a houseboat to a floating pizza kitchen. I think it would go over very well during the summers here.

The Feds built a platform in Biscayne Bay just west of Key Biscayne. For many years it had an aviation radio beacon (VOR) on it. Eventually the beacon was removed and a big empty platform sat there. I thought it would have made a great place for a convenience store / restaurant. I never did anything about it and they eventually removed the platform.

That would be Aldo. Sounds like the streets of Italy when he comes around. Has done well for himself while providing a nice service.

Now I'm singing "do you know the muffin man..." in my head!

This is a great little side venture for sure for the lady and the best part is that it's most likely legal.

When I was in the Bahamas the other month we had a guy going boat to boat trying to sell fresh lobster. It would have been great but lobster wasn't in season and I darn sure didn't want to risk going to jail!
