A Tale of Two Beaches

So, on our list for the summer is to have a beach day. Well, we may not have had a beach day yet this summer, we did have two separate beach nights!

During our recent road trip (more on that in upcoming posts), we drove home and stopped at two different beachy locations. Our first beach stop was Cocoa Beach after a day at the Kennedy Space Center (look for an upcoming post about that day as well).

Until this trip, my only memory of the Atlantic Ocean was from a trip when I was in high school. I remember the beach being gross and the water being smelly. And that memory has forever stuck with me and was my sole memory of the Atlantic. Until this trip. We went to the beach after stopping for dinner at a restaurant right on the beach.

The beach was lovely. The water was beautiful.  This is now what I will think of when I think of the Atlantic!

Following our night in Cocoa Beach, we drove to Pensacola Bay. We lucked out because our hotel was right on the beach. Right. On. The. Beach. So, of course, once we got checked into our room, we headed down to the beach.

So, although we didn’t have a beach day, I am definitely checking this one off of the summer list. We may still have a beach day this summer….but if not…..I think it’s ok. 🙂
