Ft Pierce - We meet up with the Fitchetts

I still enjoy the plantings in Florida - this time in a park next to the marina
Bill arrived home from his commute from his day job on Saturday and he and Sharman came over to the marina around noon. They have a condo south of here in Stuart and we retreated there for lunch (delicious!) and some afternoon bridge, I think we had some wine too...

Their condo is beautiful and very spacious. We played bridge on the back porch. One odd thing about the complex is that they do not allow pickup trucks to be parked at the condo, you must have a car or minivan to own a condo there. I really can't imagine the reason for that but it's the rule there.

Sharman is doing fine and I think they plan on spending 7 to 9 months of the year in Florida. For dinner we had reservations at 121 Tappas On the Water. It had high ratings on TripAdvisor and we found the ratings to be accurate, very good and reasonably priced. If you're ever in Ft Pierce, it's worth a visit.

We plan on heading north again on Monday morning to Vero Beach City Marina for a mooring. Hopefully we'll have a mooring all to ourselves but most probably we will have to share a mooring this time of the year, we'll see. The last we heard from John Kwak, he was in Vero Beach but we haven't heard from him for a couple of weeks now.
