|Vero Beach, they say its like Velcro - you get stuck there.|
Things transpire, wheels having been turning and here we are in Vero Beach......making plans to stay in Vero Beach for a while longer. We were getting ready to leave for the Bahamas. But cruising plans are always written in sand. While its true there are a few things on the job list, like the rigging pins we need to change (the most awkward ones already done), and hoping the new (second hand) radar dome we had sent here to Vero Beach, would solve the radar problem - it did! These are not the reason we are staying. The reason we are staying is that my very good friend Liesbet from 'roaming about' previously 'its Irie' and her husband Mark are coming to Florida. We are very excited, and our Christmas and New Year plans are sorted with very special friends. And Vero Beach is already starting to grow on us.
Vero Beach is so busy boats must raft together. Can you spot us?
Wandering Star and a rainbow in the protected mooring field.
Sim up the top of the mast for the 4th time in two days! My muscles are sure getting a work out but all this deck time means I get to see this sun halo and a shy manatee swimming around the boat.
Wandering Star tied to her British neighbour 'Plan B' and friends 'Island Khaya', the catamaran in front.
There is plenty of wildlife - Herons, pelicans and a murder of crow-like birds that are murdering our decks with their droppings!
And wonderful sunsets.
