Vicki looked for shoes (did you hear me Lisa Cicconi?) and I went to the Vault for a drink. The Vault is an old bank that has been coverted into a bar and restaurant. Nice!
We also ran into Jim and Ann O'Mally, DeFever Cruisers members and folks we have met before at the last rendezvous. They just purchased a slip here and moved their boat here.
