Vero Beach, Sebastian Inlet, Dodger Town

Our time around Ft Pierce and the Treasure coast was relaxing, due in no small part to the pleasant campground at Savannas Preserve. There were several pairs of tall, screeching birds around along with the menacing alligators.
I think these are Sand Cranes.

They make a terrific screeching sound.

These guys are appearing everywhere around here.  This is in the canal that runs about 20' behind our coach.
We took another ride on this day to find the Vero Beach Sports Village and Holman Stadium, the former spring training facility of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team.  With just a few twists and turns, we found it.

Later we drove across the Intracoastal Waterway to the strand of land that would take us north from Vero Beach to Sebastian Inlet.  This stretch was scenic with homes, businesses, beaches and undeveloped land.  We happened upon a gold treasure museum with artifacts from the Salvagers' Camp of this wreck dating back to the 1700's. Because dogs were not allowed, we didn't tour the museum itself, however the $2 admission price would have surely been worth it.

One of our destinations in going out here is to see the Florida State Park Campground at Sebastian Inlet.  The campground was full and reservations would be impossible but we toured the area and took a peek around the facility from below and then above the facility along the bridge that spans the inlet.  Here are a few pictures.

Somewhat disappointed at the state park campground and discouraged over the camping opportunities for us in this area, we made our way home and made plans to leave the area, moving to central Florida where we hope to find accommodations.
At home in the afternoon with the gang.

Sweet Lexie
I find myself continuing to look at late model motorhomes in my spare time. I think Wayne is growing weary of my obsession with a new coach since my fever began after the Tampa RV Supershow last month.  Uh oh.
