Had an uneventful crossing from the Bahamas to Lake Worth but little did we know the extent to which Covid-19 would effect our plans. Our intention was to rent a car from Vero and see family and friends on the west coast as we always do. Nope, not this year… Lots of fellow cruisers to catch up with. I don’t think so… The most we did was meet at a picnic table with a couple of folks keeping our distance and not sharing food. It became clear pretty quickly that we should just load up the boat and start heading home. First came the grocery store. We arrived when they opened with at least 50 others. We made a plan, like when you go to Disney and want to head to your favorite rides first. Dan went directly to eggs, I went to the chicken. We scored on both but I’d never bought Free Range eggs at $6.50 a dozen, oh well. By the time we left the store there were none left. Stocked on enough to get us to Charleston. Dan topped off the diesel and water and off we went.
We are not planning on visiting with anyone so our current plan is to do long days and our overnight to Charleston. We’ll restock there and hopefully be anchored out for the most part after that.
Basically will feel better to be home. It will still take us about a month if the weather continues to cooperate.
Hope you are all safe and healthy, enjoying some down time!
