To the Beach!

Good morning,

Here are more images that I haven't shared with you yet of our visit to Cocoa Beach last January. We are in the area again now and I'm taking even more pictures.  :)
From our Hampton Inn there was a very convenient board walk to the beach.
There were beautiful plants and flowers all along the way.
And, just in case you wonder if you are on the right boardwalk on the way back, there's a sign.
 I've published other pictures from this beach in the past.
 Looking back up the hill we could see condos overlooking the sea.  What a lovely place to live.

 Such a lovely afternoon!

 Building sand castles.... 
 It was a lovely afternoon.  In real time we are in Florida still wandering around enjoying ourselves.

More images to come as soon as I have time to format them!  :)

Best,
Lois

I'm glad you're enjoying Cocoa Beach. I'm sure the weather is different now from January. :-) It was a warm winter, though.

Good morning, everyone,

Thanks so much for your comments. For those who have asked when we will go aboard the ship, we will go aboard on Sunday, June 17. I've moved the link to the Port Canaveral web cam up in my right side bar where Freedom of the Seas can be seen coming, in port, and going. She arrives about 5 AM and departs about 4:30 PM EDT, -5 GMT.

And, for those who wonder if we will ever go home again the answer is YES! ;) We will go home at the end of the summer to enjoy beautiful Fall weather at home.

Thank you, again, everyone, for stopping by and for your very kind comments.

All the best,
Lois
