Yesterday, we enjoyed the day at anchor, but took an afternoon dinghy ride into West Palm to walk around a grab lunch. We walked from the harbor, down Clematis Street and around Rosemary Square, really pretty area.
We then enjoyed a peaceful, beautiful evening aboard. There was also another sail school tonight for our entertainment!
Today we planned to do an ocean run back to Vero, so we pulled anchors about 7 am during a brief rain shower, and just as the sun was coming up!
The trip back was uneventful, saw a couple sea turtles and some strange shaped jelly fish, none of which I was quick enough to photograph. The day was gorgeous though, with endless blue skies and blue water.
After we came through Ft. Pierce Inlet and got into Indian River we saw a guy on a type of hydrofoil surfboard, was really cool to watch!
We pulled into our slip at the marina in Vero Beach about 3pm. Another successful trip behind us!
