Last Wednesday Sarah joined us from Chicago for a whirl wind four days of togetherness. Thursday started out early with a visit from the resident baby manatee and her mother giving us a great send off. We were headed south down the ICW all the way to Fort Pierce but first stopping at Vero Beach for a night.
While at Vero we went in to the beach which turned out to be more of an adventure than we planned. While swimming we were surrounded by small bait fish, I felt a little uneasy and told King to come in closer to the shore after seeing to many big shadows in the water. At about the same time I got an aerie feeling the life guards started blowing their whistles telling everyone to quickly get out of the water. "SHARKS"! We all quickly obliged and sat on the shore and watched the sharks stir things up. As you can imagine we didn't get back in the water that day.
After a fun night in Fort Pierce we headed out to the Atlantic to sail all the way back up north to Port Canaveral. Within the first half hour we were greeted by three dolphins off our bow which reminded us all of the many times sailing with friends in Marina Del Rey. Unfortunately we didn't find much wind the rest of the way. I was wishing for more wind the whole time but didn't get it. We were all glad because the next day back in Cocoa Village we got the wind up to 40 mph and the rain followed. We were glad to be back at the dock.
