Rafted up with Creola here at Vero Beach. This is a small mooring field, very well protected. But small.
They have relatively few transient moorings and therefore, folks will sometimes have to double up on a mooring ball. Creola was there to catch our lines and make the two boats fast.
Trying to raft up against an unoccupied boat could be right awkward. It's not like hitting a dock, it's got to be done much more delicately. And someone has to jump onto the other boat to secure lines between the two.
Time for us to ease back a bit. We've gone from Green Cove Springs on the 20th of January to Vero Beach on the 5th of February. So far, so good. That's about 200 nautical miles in 15 days. 13 or so miles per day overall, allowing plenty of time to sight-see along the way.
We'll do laundry here and get some groceries. We need to resupply the beer.
We're waiting for our mail to catch up with us, including our inverter and some other parts that we've ordered.
Our daughter has a business trip to Orlando. We might rent a car and drive over there to see her.
