We watched a rocket launch this morning! We’re pretty far away, but we could still see a bright light even in the daylight, and the contrail left evidence of it’s rising.

We dropped the mooring ball at Vero Beach, and cruised north a few miles to an anchorage we enjoyed last year, labeled on the map as “Hole-in-the-Wall”. This spot did not disappoint, as we saw dolphins and manatees every day.

I’ll never get tired of sunsets on the water ❤

I spent a lot of time this past week making art! I had the opportunity to submit pieces for an exhibit here in Vero Beach, and one of them was chosen to be included!  The entire exhibit posts the art anonymously, so I can’t share any details until later 😉

I ❤ mangroves. And here’s some baby propagules before they drop and float away!

We cruised back to Vero to find a safe anchorage for a big front forecast to blow through this weekend. This time we anchored instead of grabbing a mooring ball, to save a few bucks.

The wind is fierce, but we have a sturdy anchor. Even completely surrounded by mangroves and trees, our instruments saw 30 knot gusts during the worst of it. At once point, two boats broke free of their mooring. Thanks to some fast-acting folks however, no boats were damaged and they secured the wayward vessels.

I don’t sleep much when the wind howls.
