DOUBLE-SIDED VELCRO BEACH
Day after day has been blustery and cold. Grey skies with rain squalls. Hard to believe that we have now been here in Vero Beach for sixteen days and nights. Vero Beach has become double-sided Velcro Beach. Lots of jobs have been done and twice we have hired an AVIS car just to pick up stuff. Tomorrow we leave. We have to. Captain's orders.
The dinghy dock At Vero Beach Marina during peak hour traffic.
Spent more time with Chris and Duchess Dana. Chris celebrated a birthday in style at a great little seaside restaurant just south of Sebastion Inlet. Wonderful seafood and lots of it. Waddled back to the car.
Check out the " DOLLY WITH THE TROLLEY". We had done a bunch of shopping for the Bahamas but in staying at Vero Beach Marina, it has mostly been used. More shopping at Publix to make a super "Low-Country-boil". Excellent dinner and excellent company with the crew of "SVEA" and Dawn and Ron Hughes on their yacht "DAWN TREADER". They have been exceptionally helpful while we have been here.
Now here is a phenomena for you and worth double-clicking on. A small tree bursting forth in magnificent flowers, planted entirely in concrete mulch and being fed entirely by sunshine and the exhaust fumes of the passing cars and trucks in West Palm Beach. Now who said that stuff is bad for you....
