Vero Beach | Weekending

Happy Monday!  I'm still in recovery from hours spent in the car this weekend, so I'm just gonna jump into it!

Scott and I packed up the Jeep (and the dogs) early Saturday morning and headed down to Vero Beach for the weekend. The pups got to stay the night with Scott's aunt, while we stayed at a family friend's place.  We meandered our way through the horrific Orlando traffic, and took our time.  Little Lady wouldn't settle down the entire drive, as she now has (almost) a 360 degree view of everything going on.  She also apparently does not like motorcyclists getting to close to the vehicle.

We had drinks and dinner at Captain Hiram's in Sebastian.  One of my favorite things about Vero/ Sebastian is that even though it's Spring Break for a lot of other areas (or Bike Week just an hour or so north in Daytona), you don't get the crowd that Spring Break brings.  My margarita was delicious, however my food wasn't too great- and the portions SUCKED.  I got fish & chips, and for $12.50, that included 3.25 (seriously like 1/4 piece of fish!) pieces of fish, and not really a handful of fries.  You could tell they had been sitting for a while.  They messed up Scott's order, which he ultimately didn't get.  He said, "there's a reason we always came here to drink but not so much to eat!"  The atmosphere is great though, and we'll be back... to drink at least!

Sunday morning we woke up and watched the cows in the pasture next to where we were staying.  We sat for 20 or 30 minutes on the veranda, watching them watching us.  One kept on posing for the camera when I was taking pictures.  Which was when I found out that I went through the trouble of packing my camera, only to realize that I left the memory card in the computer.

There are peacocks next door (in the other direction) and they seem to be in the road more often than not.  They're also not at all frightened of vehicles.  I kind of wanted to see if I could make his feathers perk up, but I hear they're quite mean.  I stayed safely in the vehicle and thanked goodness that we didn't have a bear or two with us to make a scene!

    Ah sorry to hear that sand bar wasn't what you had hoped food wise, but you guys made the most out of it!! That peacock is gorgeous - how amazing that you were so close to it!! I loved your pictures on insta this weekend! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  2. I chalk it up to being 8:30 on a Saturday night and it being pretty slammed. We have a couple other favorite places to eat in town, so that may be an after dinner stop instead- the drinks really were fantastic. I love seeing the peacocks when we're down, but I feel like they could become quite the nuisance if I lived down there and had to deal with them in the road all the time!

  3. We have a place in Gulf Shores that we love to go to for drinks, but we wouldn't dare eat there because it is so disappointing as far as food quality and service goes so I totally get what you are saying. That peacock is so cool! That sucks you forgot your memory card! We did that on Saturday as well at an event we went to!

  4. Yeah, it's not a huge deal, but it did put a damper on the night! More so for him, because he didn't get to eat anything! We went back to the guesthouse we were staying at and had beers on the veranda and talked, which was better anyway!


I love comments! Let me know what you think!
