Dr. Bell phoned this morning to say he had been to Sunday School and Church to pray for us to get a new set of spare propellers. He must have a direct line because we now have a deal working on a spare set for a reasonable price. I think we need to seriously consider this even though storing them is a pain.
Today is Sunday and Jan loves to watch her Sunday morning news and commentary programs plus CBS Sunday Morning. Once she has had her fill of these then we took of for the beach to see the town. There is a bundle of money hereabouts as the pictures will show. Many of the homes are right on the Atlantic Ocean and have servants quarters in back facing the road and the main house faces the ocean. Because the lots are a bit narrow these homes are very long. Some over 50-75 yards long if you can imagine that.
We bought some milk at a corner market and headed back to the boat. On the way we stopped at the Vero Beach Yacht Club and made reservations to eat dinner on Tuesday. It is prime rib night.
Finally it was time to test the dinghy. And what did we discover? It performed flawlessly after all this time just hanging on the back of the boat.
We toured the mooring field and found a familiar sight. A big red boat called “Miss Ruby”. The owners are Wes and Jeanie Quigley from Newark, Delaware. They are famous in the looper world for so many reasons and taught us in a class at the 2010 Rendevous. We had a brief reunion and then we went out into the ICW to play up close with the dolphins. This place is loaded with them. Must be plenty to eat around here.
