Happy Thanksgiving

Vero Beach, FL
Posted by Bill

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This is my favorite holiday. No gift shopping to stress out over, no malls to deal with…just gathering with family and eating some damn good food and drinks! This is the first Thanksgiving in my whole life that we have not been with family. As I mentioned in a previous post, friends that we met last year, Joe and Michele, invited us to sit at their table for the pot luck dinner that Vero Beach sets up. People that used to cruise on their boats and have now settled back to life on land in Vero (what we call CLODS – Cruisers Living On Dirt), provide turkeys and hams, and everyone brings a dish to share. The city and the marina provide a building with tables and chairs. It was a great time! Here are some pictures:

After dinner, the Salty Paws band provided some entertainment:

Also a few other friends that I caught pictures of:
Rick and Cindy, from Dark Star, whom we met in St Augustine this month:

Richard and Dawn, from Zama Dawn:

A good time was had by all.

We intended to leave tomorrow (Friday) but there has been a solid week of high winds, forecasted to end Sunday and it has the ocean whipped up with waves well over 10 feet, and we need to run outside of the ICW to get into Miami. Needless to say…we are going to wait out the winds and watch the forecast before we leave the comfort of the Vero Beach mooring field. We will keep you posted.
