We drove out on the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge today and didn't see one single orgy. We did however see tons of birds and butterflies. This place is a fantastic haven for birders and photographers. It is wild and pretty much untouched yet you can see the Vertical Assembly Building and several launch towers along the eastern horizon.
We also went out to Playalinda Beach, a very popular place for folks from Titusville and north Brevard county. It was the first time either of us had been there even though Doug lived on South Merritt Island for years. It is a beautiful beach and quite well used as we noticed today.
Doug is having difficulties with the heat. It couldn't be old age. It is most likely the cocktail of medicines he is ingesting every day along with chemo-therapy. Whatever the cause, he is so glad that we are parked in the shade and that our AC unit is performing proudly.
Doug drug out the new grill this evening and cooked up some chicken thighs, trying to emulate Odel. The only problem is that we got boneless skinless thighs and they were kind of hard to cook although they were done quickly. He used Odel's seasoning on some of them and then he used the new chipolte sauce we got at the Tobasco plant on Avery Island in LA. It came out very good.
This evening we doddered around the park and went out on the fishing pier that runs out over the Indian River. Fillmore got admired by several campers much to his delight.
