Beast of burden
We had a nice pleasant little sail down to Clearwater Beach Florida, where we made good use of the free town docks.
I carried our laundry down to the full service laundromat. While that was being taken care of, My lovely wife and I had a late lunch/early dinner at Cooters. It's a dog friendly restaurant, so that works out well for us.
After our meal I carried the gas cans down the road a few blocks to a corner gas station. Beats the heck out of marina prices.
Once the laundry was done, we motored across town to the other free docks. From there I hiked over to Publix and stocked up on some much needed groceries. We weren't going hungry, but our menus were getting a bit weird.
Check out the osprey nest, complete with bird, on the ICW channel marker.
We have the boat tucked away down the end of a protected channel as rough weather is coming in.
