Thursday, November 17, 2011 and we are at Vero Beach! We have been having so much fun, that I have not taken time to update my blog lately.
We arrived at St. Augustine, FL on Saturday, November 12th on a beautiful, sunny and warm day. We traveled 57 miles on the ICW and made it there by 3:15 in the afternoon. What a neat place to be! We caught a mooring ball in the mooring field after stopping by the marina for fuel, a pump out and refilling our water tanks. Nelson asked everyone if we could find a pizza place to eat as he was passed ready for pizza. I don’t make pizza on the boat! Guess I should!
Too much trouble! We found a great Italian Place on St. George St. and we all had salad and then two different kinds of pizza. We had pepperoni of course, and then Garbage Pizza (black olives, pepperoni, sausage, peppers, onions and lots of cheese). We all ate and still had pizza leftovers.
A great place to eat! Robert stopped at a fudge shop and bought us a slice of fudge. Wow! It was great chocolate with walnuts! Yes, I did eat too much of it! It did not last long.
Sunday morning, we invited Robert & Susan to our boat for a country breakfast. We had country sausage in the links, grits, eggs, bread, and fruit! They ate as if they enjoyed it. We also had plenty of coffee. We ate outside as the weather was beautiful!
Sunday afternoon, we all went back into town for a long walk and over to O’Malley’s to watch the ballgame and talk with other boaters that we had met earlier. We spent the afternoon and had a roast beef sandwich before we left there. We also went by Rick & Linda’s boat before going back to our boat. What a nice boat they have! It is a 43 foot catamaran and has four sleeping berths.
Monday morning, we left St. Augustine and headed south. We did enjoy our time there.
