Update.....We’ve Been here about a month. So far our work
schedules haven’t allowed us to venture too far abroad. We have been up to Vero Beach a few times and do like the atmosphere...kayaked around the mooring field and about the east side of the waterway. It is very nice but not much water for actually sailing...still, a nice place to hang out for the season.
Here in Fort Pierce, as long as you’re staying close to the water the town is very nice, walkable, and several nice tiki-type bars to enjoy music
and food/drink. The marinas
are nice and the water in Indian River Lagoon
has more breadth here to allow for sailing. Haven’t ventured out the channel but it seems very convenient here. Had hoped to find a sailing charter
nearby since our boat
is still up in NC but none here. We’ve only been on power boats here.
Across the waterway on South Hutchinson Island it is very nice with more of a tropical feel.
We hope to head down to Marathon to check it out when work
permits but understand it’s still in pretty sad shape from this past season’s hurricanes. Also am hoping to head on over to the west side...i’m A Phillies Phan and would love to experience some pre-season baseball.
We have a cruising friend that lives aboard over in Apalachicola but that’s getting a little too far away
Thanks for the advice!
