Vero Beach, Florida
We spent a lot of time on the week-end watching the tv coverage of the September 11 events. It was certainly a sad day in our nations history and it brought it all back.
Al actually knew one of the New York fire fighters that died that day. He was the son of a long time customer and Al had met him on several occasions. He came from a fire fighting and NYPD family in New York. His cousin, also a fire fighter died that day too. I just wish our nation unite together like we did after that horrible day.
Al and I decided to repeat Saturdays wonderful kayaking trip and go back to the same spot. This time we were going to go earlier and beat the heat. Well that didn’t work out too well! We got in the water about 8 am, so it was a little earlier, but it seemed hotter yesterday. We didn’t see rockets, manatee or many birds. It’s funny how the exact same place can be so different from day to day. It was not a memorable trip.
After the paddle, we found a great spot to paddle at Fort Pierce State Park. There’s a wonderful area to launch the kayaks right on the inlet. The water is clear and beautiful. We’re heading there this morning and we may get an earlier start.
