We arrived in Vero Beach on Monday, November 27, around 2:45 PM and picked up a mooring ball where we saw this big pelican taking a siesta . While in Vero we took the bus shopping for groceries, boat supplies, and even did some Christmas shopping. After some studying of the bus routes, we found that bus number 1 to bus number 4 took us directly to the IG center where we played pickle ball with the Vero Beach pickle ball players. Donna and Jerry from Blue Jacket went too. We had a lot of fun, met some really nice people and had the opportunity to play with some awesome players. Ron was already an awesome player, but me, well, I think I am getting better each time I play. You know what they say, "Practice makes perfect". In my case that remains to be seen. No matter what, it is a great game and lots of fun. We enjoyed it so much that we actually stayed an extra day in Vero so that we could play a second time.

On Saturday, December 2, we went the Farmer's Market and that evening we watched the Vero Beach Christmas Parade with our friends from Blue Jacket and Persephone. They were 90 floats all lit up with colored lights. It was a nice evening.

During our visit we had the chance to eat at a couple of restaurants. One of our favorite places being Mr. Manatee's Casual Grill. Monday's are $5 hamburger night. So we took our dinghy's up the creek with three other cruising couples. Their boat names are Mighty Fine, Autumn Borne and Gelato. We had a great time getting to know each other while sharing cruising stories.

We decided it was time to move on so we left Vero Beach on Tuesday morning at 7:20 AM and arrived here in Stuart, Florida around 2:20 PM where we picked up a mooring ball at Sunset Marina. We are now ready for some new adventures. I am sure you are all busy getting ready for the holidays. We wish you lots of happiness and good health.
