WELCOME! | September 2023

Living in Vero Beach in September offers a unique blend of both lingering summer warmth and the subtle arrival of autumn. The warm, inviting waters of the Atlantic Ocean remain ideal for beachgoers, water sports enthusiasts, and those looking to cool off during the day. There's just no better place to be than by or in the sea and if you feel better near salt water, you're not making it up. It's called thalassotherapy. Saltwater and living near the sea has both physical and mental health benefits.

Something else that's good for your health is a good laugh and here are some funny and award-winning pet pics sure to make you smile or give you a chuckle. Treasure all the pleasure of your pets and their quirkiness.
