Catching up with Central Florida Weekend, Day 2: Port Canaveral/Cocoa Beach/Disney Cruise Ship

We woke up this morning and thought, “Hey, let’s go to Cocoa Beach.” Imagine that – waking up and saying that. Much harder to do in Vegas. 🙂

But first we wanted to stop by that new housing community we’d had our eyes on – the one with the rental we almost got but somebody got there first. Later I thought, “Hey, we’d rather buy one of these than rent one – we should look into it.”

Lots for the next phase should be available in August or so and then time for building. This might work out but we’re going to see what else is out there, too.

After our tour, we headed toward Port Canaveral. And, yes, a Disney ship was in port. Woo hoo! We remembered a seafood restaurant we’d gone with Brother Bob during the 2010 Food & Wine Festival trip but we couldn’t remember the name. So I searched on our web site and, sure enough, found the name. We did the voice GPS thingie and “she” found it.

Outside seating was full and we were starving so we were happy to be seated by the window. We ordered drinks – this time I got the Margarita (one of the most amazing ever!) and Rich got some sort of Rum, Vodka Fruity thingie. He was quite happy with it.

We looked at the menu and I wanted the tacos, which came in 3s, but I only wanted 2 so we solved that problem when Rich ordered the tacos, too, and ate the extra one. They were quite scrumptious, but, for me, the real star was that Margarita. After lunch, we walked around and soaked up the atmosphere, views of the Disney cruise ship, dolphins, and pelicans. And then drove to Cocoa Beach for a brief stop on the beach. Can’t do it all at once – lol!

I can see from the photos that this is when Rich flashed his “happy, happy” smile – it was so worth all the trouble to get here.

I could do this every Saturday. I’m sure Rich could, too.

Living on Redwood Shores in the San Francisco Bay when we were newlyweds, we were surrounded by Pelicans – how we have missed our little friends!
