Vero Beach—Ahhhh, the Sweet Sound of English and Piano Duets!

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

DSC02124Friday, March 2—When we got out of the Suburban at our new park, Sunshine Travel RV Resort in Vero Beach, FL, we heard  very welcoming and very much welcomed, “Hello! Welcome!! I see you are from Michigan.” We hadn’t heard much English since we left the Everglades and it was very nice to be able to converse freely with the nice man parked next to us.

We really liked this park a lot and wished we could stay more than three nights. They have a beautiful pool in this very clean park with more spacious sites than those we left behind in Pompano Beach. After doing a little shopping, we walked around the park in the evening. It was cut a bit short when we saw what we believe to be a King Snake slither across the road.

Saturday, March 3—We spent a lot of the day at the park. The girls love the pool and their newly found activity: diving for golf balls! After we got some laundry done, we wentDSC02136 to the Atlantic to take a wake along the beach. Once again, we enjoyed a late night walk around the park.

Sunday, March 4—This was a very special Sunday as we attended church with a very dear friend whom we haven’t seen for a long time and her husband whom we had only met briefly a few years earlier. After eating Sunday lunch at Southern Sisters Cafe, we headed back to their home where my friend and I were able to catch up on one of our favorite things: playing piano duets. We were able to get a piece together to play in her church for the service at her church that evening. Barry and the girls very much enjoyed the afternoon with her kind husband and their cute dog, Tinker Bell. We were all tired when we got home that evening but the girls wanted to walk and swim once again.

After grocery shopping and a coffee run to DunkinDonuts, we finished up school and prepared to have our friends over to have supper with us. We had a great night and felt that two days with them just wasn’t enough time. Before bed, the girls had to go for one more swim. It was quite late but I drove them to the pool (more on why we drove in a minute). It was in the 50s but that didn’t stop our MI girls. We had a good laugh because of the looks and comments we got about why in the world I would let the girls swim in such cold weather.

We had walked and biked every chance we could while at this park; especially at night. This stopped today because wild boars were seen running through the park. Prompt action was taken by the management but because they weren’t yet caught, we chose to drive to the pool and stay close to our site.

This was one park that we hated to leave. It wasn’t very big but it was very relaxed and well kept. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area again.
