The time has gone by too fast and we lifted anchor this morning and headed south. Currently at a marina in Stewart, FL. Beautiful facility with great showers and a good size changing room. Our last week in Vero was hectic to say the least. Monday evening we spent with Maureen & Bob. Don and I went shopping for the ingredients for Premavera sauce and mushroom ravioli’s which Don made for dinner with a nice shilled bottle, actually two of a good white. Next morning we had breakfast with them and then headed back to the boat. On Wednesday we rented a car and drove to Clermont, Fl to tony and zoe’s (Don’s brother’s) for Thanksgiving. Zoe as usual put out an incredible meal for 18. I think I’m still full from having to taste every thing she made. We stayed with them for 2 days and then headed back to Vero. On Sunday we drove down to Juno to see Peggy’s new digs. Her place is lovely, an independent living facility called Waterford. Got to see Ken’s apartment too and ended up spending the day with them, lunching at the facility. Very good food and the company was lovely. So good to see all my long time friends during this time in Vero Beach. Now we are headed west to the other coast of Florida. We think it will take us 2 days to cross the Ocachobee Canal and then north to Clearwater for a month or 2. So much to explore on this coast never having sailed the golf before. Will keep you posted on our progress and we mosey along. Peace and God Bless.
