Fly Away Home

Vero Beach Public Library, FL

Did you see the book or the movie about the migrating geese? I feel like the geese today.

Two months ago today we were at Chipman Point on Lake Champlain to take our mast down. That was our start of this year's southward migration.

One month ago today, we were in the Great Dismal Swamp. That was the midpoint of the migration.

Today, we arrived in Vero Beach. This marks the end of this migration. It is a bittersweet feeling. On one hand, we love the migratory life and for the next two months, we'll be living the in-port life instead. On the other hand, Vero Beach is an especially nice place for cruisers to live in-port so we're glad to be here.

Last night, we had dinner at the home of my brother Ed and sister in law Sally. Sally tried to think of something we would not make on the boat for ourselves. She made corned beef and cabbage. It was delicious and it was the first time in years that we had that dish. Thank you Sally.

Here's a picture of an excellent sunset from New Bern, NC.
