Banana River to Vero Beach

We had hoped to make Fort Pierce today but that didn't happen. We were delayed 3 hours by dense fog at our anchorage. We used the extra time to do a few boat chores, yoga, read and relax. We were entertained by numerous rowers on the river. We saw boats of various sizes, with crews of 1, 2, 4, or 8 rowers. Some crews looked more hard core than others.

This looks like a job Mark would enjoy!

 These rowers even called to us, "Good morning, BIG boat!" This boat is a sweep boat or shell, since each rower has one oar. In the smaller boats, each rower has 2 oars. This sport seems to be extremely popular here. I would be prefer to be the coxswain!

The sun finally popped out, making this the warmest day of the week. We covered 40 miles in just in under 5 hours, docking in beautiful Vero Beach.

We saw this unusual tree on our walk.
