It's A Small World
02 May 2011 | Vero Beach, FL
We set out early this morning expecting the usual day on the ICW to Vero Beach. Wind was predicted to be from the east, which would allow us to have the headsail out most of the time. Wrong! Wind was from the south, around 15 mph, right on the nose. It was still a beautiful ride for the 38 mile trip. There were very few boats out and the ones that were out, for the most part, were breathtaking.
We turned up the channel for the mooring ball field at Vero and off to the left was a boat called La Buena Vida from Cape Coral. Several years ago there was a similar boat next to us at Burnt Store which left for the Bahamas and had been there, Marathon or the east coast during the summer months. Last January, they were at Georgetown in the Exumas. Now, they are at Vero. Our mooring ball is right next to them and as were tying up, Val yells over to Patty. Harold and Val came over for a visit and to catch up. What a small world.
Tomorrow Patty and I continue southward, heading for Peck Lake for the night and then on to North Lake Worth at West Palm, probably for a few days stopover. Besides, there’s a Duffy’s there with its ribs and two for one drinks. This one time it may be about the destination, instead of the journey.
