It has been a very busy fall for us with many changes in our lives. We bought a retirement home in Vero Beach and closed in early October. At the same time my mom moved back to the east coast from Denver and is living with us here in Florida. Suzi Jordan, my sister-in-law, flew in from Colorado to stay with Mom while we move our boat south. We are presently aboard Waves of Grace heading to Vero Beach City Marina after a challenging sail from Green Cove Springs and down the St. John's River. The RR Bridge in JAX was scheduled to close Dec. 7th for a week for ongoing repairs so we needed to move the boat before Monday. At the last minute, Larry MacDonald offered to help Walt get the boat down the St. John's River til Suzi arrived from Denver but as they approached the RR Bridge on Sunday, it broke. Two hours later it opened part way and Walt managed to squeeze the boat thru the opening.....Suzi drove me to St. Augustine on Monday and drove Larry back to Vero.....Walt and I will be taking a mooring ball today in Vero til Feb 1st. Wow!
