12/4/13 H81/L66 Wind: South 6 mph Sunny
Well it finally feels like Florida! They were saying that there would not be a window to cross the gulfstream for about 5 weeks but here it is week one and we had a great window to cross yesterday and today. It was calm and beautiful and no North in the wind…perfect!
Unfortunately, we are still in Vero Beach (Velcro Beach because after you get here it’s difficult to leave). Vero is very nice and if you have to be out of commission with your boat this is a great place to be. The bad side is that you are out of commission and that feels worse than it really is.
We got here with a problem that was diagnosed as a fuel injector issue on one of the newly installed injectors. Luckily for us we were able to get it fixed over the weekend. Tom installed a new water pump. Yesterday we had Bert from Exuberant install a new mast/anchor light. We were supposed to get in a new windlass yesterday but found out at the end of the day it was shipped to our home address instead of here in Vero…Grrrr! Luckily we had a friend who picked it up and resent it today to us. Thanks Brenda!
We got news that our spec house is under contract! Yay! Settlement should be January 6 or so. One big worry off the table!
We have had a ball visiting with everyone here. We had a cruisers Thanksgiving with about 100 people. It was fun and turned out to be a nice day but cool. We have been catching up with everyone…Bert and Pru on Exuberant, Greg and Daisy who now have a condo here along with sister Donna/MOXEY who is visiting before heading south, Linda and Hutch/SANDCASTLE who now live here in Vero. Dennis and Bettye/MISS BETTYE stopped by on their way home to St. Augustine. Mark, Jan and puppy Sailor/SEAS THE DAY visited from Stuart last Sunday. Went to a street concert and saw about 10 other cruisers who have homes here now in the Vero area. Whew! lol
Hope all is well with you and yours! Thanks for stopping by!
