Another Stop on the Inter-Planet Itenerary

Pictures coming back from Titan, Saturn's largest moon. I don't see this as a tourist destination, when the beaches run up against seas of liquid methane I'd pass on the swim. What would really strike me as a big deal is if the scientists can confirm that those boulders are ice, as in water. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the first time that a large amounts of water have been found anywhere other than Earth and Europa near Jupiter? Boulders of ice ready to carve and toss in the tanks. What could be better for long range interplanetary travel?
