Hey, it makes more sense than how all of the pizza places are selling chicken wings now. I don't get that.

No, the walk is fine...I just didn't know my way around yet. And I certainly had no idea where it was when the GPS said 500 feet, other than it was close.

That's great. So, you'll be going back sometime? Maybe Vero should import some sand.

That's so cool that you're close enough to just go try out their restaurants.

Not a bad arrival day!

The pizza looked good enough to hit the spot. Good job with the picture of Orchid Pizza, getting the phone number into your photo for the benefit of future travelers.

Exactly how long did it take to cook the pizza that you had all that time for a Family Circus drive/hike?

Sorry it wasn't much of a beach day when you visited. Good for you for getting into the water, though. The pool and the slide both look really nice, so I'm glad your family could take advantage of that.

Looking forward to reading about more of your beach trip.

I can't comment on individual stuff like I usually try to do as we're in the car driving to the Shell Factory. LOVE your suite, but love your view even more!!!!!!!!

Glad you got some beach time your first day; that is air of seaweed.

All caught up.

The first day seemed like a good one. I would like to stay at Vero beach one time.

Yeah, I don't get the wing thing, either.

We will defintely be going back. We are just trying to find the time. I'm not sure about next year, but we'll see.

It was good! Yep, a great picture for DISers. If someone had done that for me, I might've been able to avoid the Family Circus drive/hike!

I'm not sure, but it was probably only about 20 minutes. It may look like a lot of territory in that satellite picture, but it's really not that far. Plus, I like my pizza to cool just a little bit so that the cheese can set, so I'd almost prefer not to get it right out of the oven.

We were only there for a few days, so had to take advantage of the opportunity.

Thanks for checking in Kathy. Have a great time with Nicki and Todd.

I've been giving Vero the benefit of the doubt and saying that this was an unusual amount of seaweed. Cynthia said there's a big difference with her pictures, so it'll be interesting to see what she reports.

I hope you do Scott. It's worth checking out, for sure.

That's great! I'm not sure when we'll get back. It's convenient because Judy's sister is close-by, but in 2013 we need to let our points catch back up after our borrowing in 2012 , and then we're planning on Aulani in 2014. So it'll be a while, but maybe in a few years.

We are hoping to get to Aulani next year. I am celebrating an unpleasant milestone birthday and that is the plan. We are waiting to see what the school schedule looks like before we really decide.

We are going to have quite a few points left over for this year that we'll be banking, so we should be able to get a nice long trip...hopefully.

A that ends with a 0? I'm in between a couple, and unfortunately leaning toward the higher one.

What time of year are you going? I know someone who is planning a Hawaii trip for next year, too.

I was a little behind.

The pizza did look good! Good thing it was so close.

I'm glad you got some beach and pool time in. We've been to beach when the seaweed is bad too. Yuck! Hate the feel of it, even worse is trying to get it out of the suits.

Looking forward to more.

Enjoyed the update! The beach time looked fun despite the vegetation invasion.

I cannot believe the ground you covered while waiting for that pizza!!

Looking forward to more Vero updates!

Unfortunately, it ends with a 0 and starts with a 4. UGH!!!

I'd be fine with it if my husband wasn't 5 years younger than me and loved to bring that up a lot...and I mean A LOT.

Hmm....wonder who that might be? lol

Our two options are late July and late September. If we get the school calendar that we want, it will be the last week in September/first week in October. If we get the school calendar that I believe we will get (with no fall break), we are probably going to go the last week of July.

The good thing about July is that we can go for longer.

So, when is this certain someone thinking of going?

Late June. That's when our--I mean, his--15th anniversary is. Already booked the flights so we could use our frequent flier miles!

Currently trying to sucker some DVC owner into renting points for Aulani, but I haven't gotten anyone to take the bait yet.

Nice!!!

I wish we had more points to offer you, I mean, him. Other than the whole 40th birthday thing, I'm really looking forward to it. I wish we had enough miles to get all four of us there.

Congrats on the anniversary, by the way! (I mean, tell your friend....)
