A Trip to Vero Beach

Off to an early start for our day visiting Bill's sister, Barb and husband, Doug in Vero Beach!
I got quite a bit of knitting done in our three hour trek.
The beach side restaurant where we had a lovely lunch-calzones and canolis!    
 The water was breathtakingly beautiful-really the turquoise shade it shows in the picture!
 Just a lovely light surf and lots of others who were enjoying the water, too.  We even spotted a manatee but it was too fleeting for a picture!
 The wind blown beach walkers!
We topped the beach visit off with an ice cream stop-hmmmm, mango sorbet was a perfect conclusion!

We went back to their house and had a couple of rousing games of cards and then the men did some landscaping jobs -we came home with some unwanted bushes and plants-the car was filled , in fact.  I had an unwanted visit from a spider and Bill got stung by a caterpillar-small price to pay, says he!  Ha!
Thanks for the lovely day, Barb and Doug!
