Cruising Sebastian, Florida

 We had a great weekend cruising the Sebastian, Florida area.  We anchored the first night off the islands directly East of Captian Hirams.  The other two nights we stayed at a slip at Captain Hirams.  The rate was $1.75/ft. $5 extra for power.  They have a great tropical bar restaurant and always feature great live music.
Brandy's birthday was Saturday and we got engaged that afternoon while anchored off an island in the intercoastal.   It was a great night celebrating with friends.
