My Big, Fat, Greek Family Diner!
This is a Greek run, family diner. I always take the food to go and I have never been disappointed. It's not what I call fancy by any means, but really good diner food. I would check it out. As I mentioned, I usually take my food to go, but I always go for the pastitsio. That is my ultimate favorite Greek dish!

"December 5, 2001 - Titusville to Melbourne"
Coming down the Indian River, Bob did quite a bit of sailing as there was a strong east wind. He likes to sail.
Took a photo of the Cocoa Beach water tower with the big flag on it. Some of the fixed bridges are in such bad shape at the bottom that you can see the rebar and wire mesh sticking out. One of them has apparently had the concrete painted at the bottom - whether to conceal new cement work or to cover up graffiti is hard to tell. I made lunch and when I came up to eat it, I spilled a whole glass of iced tea on myself.
We anchored about mile marker 920 behind Crab Point off Melbourne Beach about 1320. The wind was 10-20 knots from the east - we were as close to shore as we could get.
The wind gen was running and putting lots of amps into the batteries, so we ran the TV. The space shuttle was to go off at 5:19, so I turned up the TV loud while we ate dinner in the cockpit. We saw it come out over the trees, and then in between clouds. I got a pretty good picture with the digital camera. It was not as close as it would have been if we were still in Titusville, but I was glad to see it in person.
"December 6, 2001"
Bob pulled the anchor and I motored out of the anchorage. He started the refrigeration, and pulled out the jib and then cooked bacon for himself (I just had a bagel).
We passed a topsail schooner which was apparently being pushed along by a dinghy. We got through the shallow areas by Vero Beach - I didn't get a picture of the mooring field there. Bob had the sails out quite a bit.
Every time a power boat passed the depth sounder went crazy.
