We are tied to a mooring ‘ball’ in the Vero Beach Marina’s moorings......they are municipal owned and the facilities ashore are excellent! This is a lovely quiet part of Florida and we are happy to spend a few days here.  Claire has been shopping and bought a dress and we used the local free bus to get to the shops. 
After a mainly liquid lunch + crab and fries we walked along the ocean beach but it was too rough for a swim.  We’ve taken the dinghy around the many mango ringed islands and although we’ve seen eagles, lots of ospreys, pelicans and anhingas we’ve yet see to see a manatee and the little dolphins are plentiful but shy about approaching the yachts.
The new outboard is behaving wonderfully and we’ve finally found ourselves planning along the waterways.
