Apparently many cruisers discover Vero Beach to be a wonderful place to visit and then find it very difficult to leave.
Therefore: Velcro Beach.
But on to the big news.
Yesterday I posted my concerns about leaving Wilbur alone on the boat. Since we're all together pretty much 24/7 he's started having issues with being left alone. So last night when we went out to dinner with some friends we locked him in our berth along with a peanut butter kong and a bowl of water in the head.
Before we left.
"Sure, go ahead and leave me! I'll keep warm somehow."
Upon our return.
"Geez, what's the big deal?"
I admit to being a little anxious while we were away and fully expected to find that we'd need to replace the door to our berth. You can imagine how relieved I was to come back and find everything was just fine and as far as we know Wilbur was a good boy.
At least we think he was. Hans left his phone behind when we went out and we're hoping we don't get a shocking phone bill full of 900 calls to Lonely Pretty Pitties in the Big Cities.
