8:09 AM Underway
3:11 PM Docked bow in port side to Slip 7

OK, we have been told that when you get to Vero, Fl you are past the cold part north of there. Tonight it’s going to be 47º. That doesn’t sound like shorts weather for dinner out either. I am getting tired of wearing the same pair of jeans and the few cold weather long sleeve shirts are getting too much use. We are staying here tomorrow too. Maybe it will be warmer.

Nice travel day from Cocoa to Vero down the Indian River. The wind picked up around noon and blew hard until after we docked. I measured 18 knots almost hitting us broadside on the starboard side of the boat. There were gusts higher than that but not sustained enough for me to get my hand held wind speed meter The Indian River is not deep enough to get too rough with wind blowing across it. Blowing straight up and down the river might be another story. But we had no issues. I overtook another barge with damaged boats piled on it. We also saw lots of boats blown up into the mangroves. Hurricane Irma did a number on this area of Florida. I don’t think it’s going to get better the further south we go either.

We tried to get reservations at the Yacht Club next door. The club I belong to did have reciprocity with the Vero Beach Yacht Club, but they had no space. So, we ended up next door at the damage recovering city marina. We passed the mooring field that was damaged and many of the mooring balls no longer exist. There are three boats rafted on many of the mooring balls. We were lucky to get a slip at the damaged dock.

We are going to provision some tomorrow. There is a city bus that picks up hourly at the marina. So, we will get to the actual Vero Beach area tomorrow and get to see the beach and hit the grocery store too.

Today’s picture is Susan on relief watch.
