We are now in Vero Beach, also nicknamed Velcro Beach because it is such a nice place that when people come to visit they never leave. We are at the city marina which is conveniently located near the beach and shopping. Being near shopping is a luxury when boating. While here, since we will be here a week, Rich and I decided that it will be a good time to do some periodic maintenance on the boats. I cleaned my heat exchanger, changed my impeller and the belts. On boats access is limited and makes easy tasks difficult. You need to have long arms and be a contortionist. I usually hurt for a day after and am covered with black and blues. It is alway a good opportunity to convince the authorities that Jess beats me.
Today is March 23rd and we will be celebrating Jess's birthday.
We are hoping to tour the Piper Aircraft facility on Tuesday as well as meeting up with a past business colleague, Dave Coffin and his wife Susan for lunch. Wednesday we leave for Stuart and that will be the start of our trip west through the Okeechobee.
Till next time!
Sunset over Miami
Andy and Anita Ragona visited us while in Ft. Lauderdale. We always have great times with them.
Some people have bad luck. We passed this boat just before Delray Beach. I think he needs a big bilge pump!
