Vero Beach Municipal Marina - Doubled up on a mooring

A view south from the Vero Beach mooring field, a quiet end to a busy day
It’s Finn again. Today I woke up to the sound of the motor, it was loud. I learned what the red and blue markers mean. They mean go through us. Note to self, don’t eat under way it made me sea sick. We also had to call a bridge AND IT OPENED UP!!! On my spelling test I got 100/100 pts, it was easy. After that I did math with grandpa. When we got there I helped grandpa with the lines. We also saw a pod of DOLPHINS. I also did my horn. After that I learned how to turn  the boat. That’s all the exciting we did BYE!!! 

Finn complained about the early start but it was only a 7:30 departure. He had to get up at 7:00 to get ready and help with the lines. Finn didn't really get seasick, he just felt a little queasy. Once he climbed out of his cubby hole down below and into the cockpit, he was fine. I think Matthew had the same problem. They like to barricade themselves in the aft cabin so no lights disturb their video game playing but that's not conducive to a settled stomach when the boat lurches from a passing cruiser. I mean, we're not even out on the Atlantic, it's just the ICW! 

Today was more fractions, a favorite of the course for Finn. We worked through them and now it's the weekend. Finn lobbied for a half day but Ann said no dice! Got to study. 

We left at 7:30 am and reached Vero Beach by 4:45 pm, a long day, about 65 miles. It's full here with boats doubled and some tripled up even. We'll spend another day before heading south again for Hobe Sound.
