Dean -- Sunny but cooler than normal
Saturday, January 13, 2018 - Cool front settling in here in VERO Beach
Good Evening… We just finished dinner… this has been a wonderful, but very hectic day. Earl, and Kathy rented one of those weekend specials from Enterprise, so we did some far ranging shopping…
We drove down to Fort Pierce this morning to see what shopping wonders were at the Marine Liquidators shop… that proved very good for both SEEKER, and AB. I found PERKO hinges that fit our cabinets…. (RARE); and Earl found a Macerator for SEEKER, much cheaper than the West Marine unit.
We moved on to lunch at HarbourTown Marina…in Fort Pierce… very nice fish and chips, and tacos.
On the way back we hit a few places like Walmart, CVS, Melody Music, West Marine, etc. SO by the time we got back here to the marina, I think everyone was whipped…. Nice to be sitting, and watching TV…
Tomorrow, we may try to see the movie “The POST” starring Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks. Everyone has been looking forward to its premier, here.
Friday evening we spent at the condo of Gina, and Joe (s/v Okeema Rose), and re-connected with Don, and Judy Polifka.
Thursday night we spent next door on SEEKER, after the Tiki Hut Happy hour, at the Marina (on SEEKER we were in the company of Benny and Lisa (s/V Rhiannon); and Grant and Libby (s/v Nightengale). Nice evening…re-connecting with those folks.
Wednesday night Rhiannon (Benny and Lisa) treated us to dinner at Riverside Café. I had worked on their refrigeration system earlier in the week. NICE evening…
Anyway… it’s been a very busy week… starting with Manatee Monday… On guess when…. Monday!
More Later.
