This year we plan on returning to the same beach front hotel, this time with an ocean view. We locked in on a room, rental car, and arranged for hangar space at KVRB, Vero Beach Regional with Sun Aviation.
The Weather Watch
Departure day was scheduled for March 13th but the weather wasn't looking good and the weekly forecast was showing lower temps then we would like for beach time.
Friday morning we rescheduled our hotel reservation, rental car, doggie boarding, and our cat sitter. I also had to contact my brother to cancel our planned Mets game and our Wednesday excursion and lunch with our brides. Whew, way too much phone time but we are good to go.
Our travel weather is looking much better for Monday 3/20, despite showers upon arrival into Vero.
Lucy was dropped off at the vet/boarding facility on Saturday and our cat sitter will be here Tuesday through Friday. Smoke and Binx get to play without being harassed by Lucy, it’s their vacation too.
My plan is to fly the same first leg route to KLRO - Mt. Pleasant as our previous flight in March 2022.
It’s a very early start for our travel day. Mary and I were up early and arrived at the airport by 6:30am. Together we had preflighted Sunday, and I sumped fuel to complete the process. Baggage was weighed on Saturday which allowed me to add seven gallons of fuel to bring 3 Tango Charlie to 55 gallons total.
We got a nice look at Saint Simons Island, more investigation to follow for a future four day get-away.
Casey’s Place is outdoor dining only for this American fair food selection. I ordered a cheeseburger with bacon, Mary had a Ruben, we spilt some cheese fries.
Our breakfast choice is the lemon tree. We enjoyed our breakfast here last year so why not go with a sure thing. After our tummies were full Mary visited her friends shop, Lily Pad, just two doors down.
