We got a chance to take Leo to the vet for a few minor concerns.  Isn’t he a good kitty?  Mel and Chris from sv Vacilando recommended and drove us to Victoria Park Animal Hospital.  A very, very, very nice place!

I insisted that we re-visit North Palm Beach, FL so I could hit up Plato’s Closet again.  Very cool, little thrift shop.  I was feeling very coral this day!

This is what I found when we hung out with Kim and Scott in West Palm Beach, FL.  Only Kimmy would roll up to a Starbucks and order ice water.  That’s why they’ve been cruisin’ for 9 years, I guess!

We made it to Ocracoke.  Amazing.  You can kinda' see the lighthouse sticking out of JR's head.  The smiles are legit, man.
