Vero Beach

We stop at Vero Beach every year, usually twice - once going north and once going south.  We have never stayed long, generally grabbing a mooring for the night and making a quick departure the next morning.  But within the cruising community Vero has the nickname "Velcro Beach" because it is such a cruiser-friendly spot.  So we decided to check it out this trip.  We broke with tradition and took a slip for a few nights to make it easier to explore.  Today we had lunch with Krogen friends Steve & Sandy, spending three hours catching up and swapping lies about boats and RVs.  It was a great afternoon!

Nice neighbor!



Nice neighborhood!

We're outta' here!

After being stuck in one spot for over five months, we are finally back to traveling!

It's been quite a winter. Cindy had a knee replaced and Randy had his gall bladder removed. In the middle of all that there was plenty of physical therapy, boat projects and doctors appointments, (eye, orthopedic surgeon, general surgeon and family practice doc) for both of us.  Of course interspersed with the drudge we made time for dinners with friends, or a glass (or two) of wine.  Sometimes both. Oh yeah, we found time to sell the motor home too.

But Cindy has graduated from her physical therapy program and I've been signed off by the surgeon so, as Jackie Gleason used to say, we're outta' here!

Next stop...Vero Beach.
