When in Florida you have to check out the beaches. I mean, Louisiana, has muddy, chocolate, nasty water. So when we get a chance to check out blue, green, clear water--- we do it! There are tons of beaches to visit, but we went with what was familiar to us first: Cocoa Beach.
We didn't plan to go into the water, so we just packed up and headed out. No towels. No bathing suites. No toys. Just us and the open road.
The pier was nice, the temperature was perfect and the views were okay.
It was fun to watch those with surf boards riding the waves, walk the pier and stand in the cool water.
A pic of me and Justin because we NEVER take pictures.
Finley decided she wanted to walk in the water, run in the sand and bring Helen with her for some fun. The next time we made it out to the beach (another post) she had her bathing suit ready, sunglasses in tow and sand toys in her bag!
We took a different route back and stopped at a roadside fruit and veggie stand. MY FAVORITE! We squeezed fresh orange juice, ate the fresh strawberries and made sandwiches with fresh tomatoes!
You really cannot get a better shot than a toddler drinking fresh squeezed Florida orange juice with fingers full of dirt and grime.
I plan travel to support my family. Schedule some time to chat to see if what I offer travelers is what you are needing!
As a homeschooling mom who found that her children thrived more when living life together instead of being stuck in a classroom 8 hours a day, I turned my love of travel and educating my kids into the perfect mix: unschooling.
