Vero Beach Trip

Vero Beach was wonderful! if you didnt mind the "rip tides" and "undertows" and did i mention "crabs" lol. it was fun i was so relaxed i thought hubby was going to have to get a huge "puddy knife" and scrape me off the balcony chair!! lol.. the breeze was wonderful it was in the 80s and just perfect. water was freezing but it didnt matter to the younger folks!! no way was i going to spend hours putting on a "fat suit" to get into "ICE COLD " water lol. so my sister Kathy and i just watched lol.. and laughed and laughed! the sites to behold were something else. dh even told us during his trip into the ocean the rip current got him and pulled his shorts off!! lol.. now that was a hoot for sure!! Kimberly our oldest daughter was with him shes 38yrs old and she was hysterical lol.. she was so thankful she didnt see this lolol.. she said if shed seen it shed been blinded for life and on a therapist couch for many years to come lolol it was funny and we had a good laugh!!!
that night Kathy and sat on the balcony and watched things going on!! what sites we saw! lol thats another story in itself ;) all i can say is STRANGE things happen at night lol.. we went to bed about 12:30 and they were all still partying!!! lol...
we had a wonderful time and ill share some pics here shortly!
