This morning Stormy (one of Chris Parker's weather gurus) said we could leave tomorrow Friday so unless something changes in the morning we'll be off. We'll do at least one night and maybe two if the weather stays good. We should at least get to West Palm Beach with the one night and if two, then not sure, Cape Canaveral, further? We really do need to go as far as possible. Our insurance wants us in the Chesapeake by June 1 and that seems really hard.

On Wednesday we rented a car for 24 hours from Enterprise. We chose the "we'll take a chance and you pick the car" option - the same price as a compact. And the young man gave us a Mustang Convertible! Tooling down Route 1 to Key West for the night was extra fun. We walked all around the old town and had drinks on the waterfront followed by an excellent dinner at Sarabeth's Restaurant. Nice break! Just before retuning the car the next day (after a bunch of errands) we had lunch at Castaway. Last time for eating out for awhile.
I'll post an update when we reach our next destination. Wish us luck!
