St. Augustine to Vero Beach
Leaving St. Augustine Florida heading south we could not help but notice the change in weather. It was January 5 and the midday temps were in the mid seventies. This was joy.
Another thing we could not help but notice was the pace of home construction - things are booming along the waterway. But only if you want a 12,000 sq ft house.
I guess the guys who sold out America in the junk mortgage schemes have decided to sink their hard stolen gains and bonuses in real estate. There were dozens of enormous homes under construction, all attended by multiple trades and scores of workmen. Not much of a slowdown here.
We anchored behind a bridge in Daytona Beach and hit the sheets at sundown, ie. 5:30 p.m. The next day it was up with the sun intending to be away by 7:00 a.m. to make Titusville by nightfall.
Pretty Dull Huh?
It got better the very next day.
