Vero Beach

Today we motored the ICW from Jensen Beach to Vero Beach. It was an uneventful trip. The weather was hot, with little breeze. There was very little traffic in the ICW. Not much to report.

We arrived at 2:30pm (got an early start today). The dogs had a wonderful afternoon at the local dog park. We took the dinghy ashore and went as a family. That was the first time Henry and I had been ashore in three days!! Buddy and Charlie met a managerie of canine friends, and Andy and I chatted up the older crowd that frequents the dog park (average age around 70). They all oohed and aahed over our adorable Henry, going so far as to ask if they could pinch his chubby thighs. We let them, of course.

We are planning to stay in Vero Beach for a couple of days to take advantage of the free bus and accessible shopping. We may not stay too long, though, as the place is surrounded by mangrove trees and those pesky little bugs are finding their way into the boat and eating me alive despite the screens.

Tomorrow will be quite exciting, as we will be going to the beach to watch the rocket launch from Cape Canaveral! Andy is particularly excited, he has always wanted to see a launch.


  1. Hello Deb, Andy and Henry!
    This is such a great idea! I'm so glad to be able to read about your adventures at sea! Talk to you soon!
    Love Julie
    Go Rocket! Woo Hoo

  2. Thanks for checking out our blog! Our friend Judy suggested we write one. I think it will be a great way to record our journey for everyone to see even when we don't keep up with email. Miss you!
