Where we at

Hangin' out (and hanging on) in Fort Pierce

18 to 22 mph, for days!
I'm not sure if this is going to be the new norm but we're experiencing crazy strong winds. It looks as if we'll have this throughout next week as well. As a result we've rearranged our plans to stay in Fort Pierce one more day (after 4 days of winds) and hope to get to Cocoa Beach on Tuesday. We'll hunker down there for another 3 days.

My girlfriend, Jennifer, left us Saturday to do her trek-y cruise in the Bahamas. While no storms are forecasted (like here) the winds look bad for that as well, not that a big cruise ship would be bothered by 9 foot seas. I hope she has a great time.

Prior to that we did some typical touristy things, like a mani/pedi outting. She did get to experience cruising with us, and even one of our most tenuous docking attempts. Getting into Fort Pierce was not quick, easy, or straightforward. But it did get done.

Hiding from the winds for beautification
With the wind came cooler temps, which have discouraged me from participating in any outdoor adventures. I've been reading, playing games, and listening to the new radio Russ installed. He's entirely too handy.
