"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

April 12 - Ft. Pierce, FL

Fort Pierce City Marina

“At sea, I learned how little a person needs, not how much.” –Robin Lea Graham

Today was a catch up day...we caught up on work and sleep. After two long days on the water and five weeks in the Bahamas we needed both. Stan didn't sleep well the last few night in the Bahamas since he had so much on his mind, so last night being tired to a dock and the air conditioner running he definitely caught up. We started our day by going out for breakfast, unfortunately our favorite place is closed on Sundays, so we made due with a dinner down the street from the marina. By 10:00 I had finished three loads of laundry and Stan had washed the boat. Both were long over due...it feels great to be clean. We also caught up on our boat logs and the blog.
 
After so much work this morning we decided we deserved a trip to P.P. Cobb General Store for a cold beer and light lunch. I told you we were back in the land of excess and accessibility. It's too easy to go out...to stay in! The P.P. Cobb General Store was the first store in Fort Pierce. It traded goods between local Indian tribes, planters, and schooners that sailed out of Saint Augustine and Jacksonville. Today Cobb's is a delicatessen specializing in baked goods, homemade soup, salad & sandwiches, but the biggest draw to the store is their selection of over 500 different beers...Stan was like a child in a candy store. They also carry a large selection of sodas, nostalgic candy and souvenirs. It's a very interesting place and the owners are very friendly and very knowledgeable. It's definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.
