Dave spent the afternoon doing some chores. First he ran the pickling solution through the water maker. It was nice to have power to do that instead of draining our batteries. Then he changed the zincs on the prop. He had to move the dinghy away from the stern so he could get under the boat. Then he made several trips to the prop using a mask and snorkel and holding his breath. It always amazes me how much those get eaten away. But that’s why they are there, to protect the prop and shaft from being eaten away. Dave didn’t drop any bolts!! We were impressed.

We took showers and all went out for a great lobster dinner. That was something Alice wanted to do and she wanted to treat us. We knew just the place. We went to Chowder Heads back in November. They fly in lobster from Boston every other day. They were wonderful! The chef didn’t like the way one of the lobsters turned out, so Dave waited for his and ended up getting it free. They were $15/lb and each of ours were about 1 1/2 pounds. They split open the tail for you and crack the claws. Just wonderful.

We made a trip to Walmart, just because we could. We actually wanted to pick up a couple cheap lawn chairs. Then we returned to the boat. We took a walk out to the end of the dock, since Alice hadn’t seen that. Then we sat in the cockpit and visited with a great breeze and still 75 degrees. We discussed what we wanted to do for the rest of the week. Since we aren't overjoyed about this marina, we decided we will head south again, anchor a night, then go to a different marina south of Lake Worth. This way Alice can experience anchoring, too. Great first day!
