Day 1 in Florida.
I spent some time today driving up and down the tiny strip of land that is Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral, trying to get my bearings and find out what there is to do while Todd takes his class every day.
There actually isn't a lot to do...this is a somewhat isolated little beach town, leaning heavily toward restaurants, hotels, bars and strip clubs. But it's still fun to drive around and see palm trees everywhere. And I had a great lunch at a little coffeehouse and an even better dinner at a waterfront seafood restaurant where we watched the sun set. That's where the photo was taken--the only photo I took today.
Tomorrow I should do better, photo-wise--I am going to tour Kennedy Space Center all day tomorrow, and then pick up Todd when his class is done, and we'll take off for Orlando and see Mickey. It should be a really fun, really exhausting day!
Our hotel is right on the ocean, so I was able to step out to the beach this afternoon and sit in the sun for a couple of hours. The water was cold! The breeze was chilly, too, as the sun got lower. I think it was about 78 degrees here today, but cooler by the water. Tonight we walked down and watched the stars from the beach for a little while--very romantic.
