Having purchased our first boat in Deltaville and subsequently sailing in that area for 5 years, I know well what you speak of.

The only thing that keeps me from moving back down there is the drive. Well that and the economy down there has taken such a hit. There were several decent restaurants in Deltaville when we left but they have all closed. The building that housed one of our favorites was burned down a few weeks ago in training exercise for the local FD.
