A Beautiful, Windy Beach Trip

Two weeks ago we were sitting around, trying to remember how long it had been since our last beach trip. It had been a while.

So we fixed it. We loaded up the car and headed to Cocoa Beach, our favorite site for a quick getaway.

We listened to the pounding surf and soaked up some sun for about an hour and a half. We enjoyed lunch at one our favorite spots. Coastal Market in downtown Cocoa Beach in case you’re curious. And we headed back home with smiles on our faces.

The only downside was that the wind was pretty freakin’ strong. We put up our beautiful beach umbrella–for about a minute! I’m always a bit freaked out when Mother Nature turns my umbrella inside-out, so we just braved Apollo’s rays without the usual protection.

Yeah, that happens to us a lot. Thus shall it ever be for those of us who like to visit Florida beaches. But you know, that’s why God made sunscreen!

If you’ve neglected to get yourself into a lovely natural setting for a while, just make the time, just get out there! You’ll be glad you did.
