Since we are waiting on parts, we went to a really good 'family' restaurant. Everything is made from scratch. The service is friendly and efficient. They don't serve liquor and apparently that causes some people to go elsewhere. Those folks are really missing out!. Brantly's is sooo good. After the meal the waitress asked if we wanted dessert. She asked if we wanted pie. We said yes, the whole pie. The lemon meringue was devine. Even had some for breakfast.
I must say that Matt is starting to chew off the dock lines. He hates waiting for anything. We found a good spot to wait though. Being on the move makes it hard to get packages. You never realize how land tied you are until you need something delivered. I buy most of what I need, besides groceries, online. Getting Christmas presents this year will be a new challenge. Hopefully everyone will enjoy brown box wrapping paper.
We have lived on our boat for 8 months. I still don't miss all the stuff we used to have. I know that buying stuff is the main driving force of our economy, but that has to be a better way to spend our money. I was thinking of starting a facebook page dedicated to buy local, buy USA for Christmas. I remember making Christmas gifts for family and friends. It was a hands on way that showed people that you cared enough to take the time to make something. Everyone is so busy just trying to survive.
Enjoy the pictures! Too bad you can't have some pie.
