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!
