Vero Beach and BCV trip report...
I have been putting this off as long as possible in hopes that I would actually wake up from my nightmare that I/we have left WDW.
Sunday June 19, 2007: Up and out to the airport for our early morning flight to MCO then drive to Vero Beach. Good start to the trip with our flight actually arriving 20 minutes early. Thanks to Florida’s 70 MPH speed limit, the drive to Vero Beach took us about 90 minutes.
Stopped to grab some grub and suds for the room and then check in at Vero. If you haven’t had the pleasure, VB is awesome! As soon as we dropped our food and luggage in the room we went back to the lobby to grab some food at the Green Cabin Room. This place serves really cold beer and has some great burgers and whole wheat flat breads that they make into an interesting pizza, but the best part is the un-real view looking out on the ocean while enjoying all of the above.
We stayed for 3 nights and the only complaint any of the 4 of us have is that they need to replace the mattresses - all of them! We relaxed, had fun in the pool, had an adult beverage or twenty, enjoyed some relaxation and then really had fun when we sent the kids off for crafts, a very un-merry birthday party, more crafts, and another event that I cannot recall right now.
On our second night at VB we went on a turtle walk with the group Caribbean Conservation. It was one of the neatest things we have ever done. While waiting on the very dark beach our guide asked if anyone had questions. Well, he did not know that the master questioner was there – my son is a huge animal lover and very inquisitive for a 7-year-old. My DS took the bait and about 100 questions later (occasionally he would let someone else ask something) the scouts called on the radio to let us know that a turtle was on the beach laying her eggs. We walked right up to her and my DS actually was let right up front to help her with replacing the sand after she was finished laying. Walking back to the cars (we had to walk about ¾ of a mile up the beach) my DD and DS said to DW and I that this was one night they will never forget.
On Wednesday, June 22nd we checked out of VB and drove to WDW and the BCV.
