We hooked up to a mooring here in Vero Beach Sunday afternoon and we are finally enjoying what I would call perfect weather. Cloudless sunny skies with temperatures in the 70's!
Poor Wilbur's eyes nearly popped out of his head the first time a dog burst out of the mangroves right behind where our boat is moored (although I was pretty damn surprised too!).
It turns out there's a dog park within a stones throw from our mooring but the only way to get there is to dinghy way down the shore and then walk to it.
We've been there twice but since Wilbur doesn't listen very well, I had to keep him on his leash nearly the whole time.
I told Hans I really need to get my hair colored but I think I'll steer clear of the stylist that takes care of this bunch!
I smell a lawsuit!
These are the mangroves right beside our boat. Sometimes we swing so close that I think we could actually jump to shore if we wanted to. Don't think Wilbur hasn't thought about that already and I'm keeping a sharp eye out.
This mornings breakfast was bacon, eggs over easy, and toast.
Today was also a Bloody Mary morning.
I think it's a national holiday.
This is the first real few days that we've been able to relax on this trip and not feel pressured to MOVE!!! So I've finally been able to do some reading. I took some of my already read books to the book swap at the Marina and ended up finding Twilight. Since there seems to be a huge following of this book and its sequels I finally decided to give it a try.
Then I got back to the boat and read the sappy three sentence blurb on the back cover that's supposed to hook and reel me in. I think the chances of me suddenly going crazy and screaming hysterically at a Clay Aiken concert (I waited on a bunch of Claymates once and it was surreal!) are a lot greater than my actually enjoying this book.
