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.

  1. Glad you got to restock.publixs can be a bit pricey but the fresh baked bread cant be beat for turning a plain sandwich into a good meal.A rotisserie chicken and a loaf of sourdough for 12 bucks and makes 2 meals for 2.Life is about good fun,friends and food enjoy!

    1. Thanks Gary! When down south I do like to shop a Publix. However, while on the water, I'll shop anywhere I can.

  3. Getting gas away from a dock you'll find much better prices. I miss having a Publix grocery store close by. Since we left the east coast, were stuck with WalMart or Crest grocery stores.
