Cocoa Beach, Florida

Cocoa Beach was our first beach stop here in Florida. It was a lot of fun. The sun was shining bright and the water was so warm. We both thought the water was so warm... as warm as the water in Brazil. Actually, we think there are a few similarities between Florida and Brazil. We spent the afternoon at the beach. We saw a huge fish ( we are not sure what it was... maybe a sword fish or marlin) jump like two or three feet in the air a little ways away from us in the water. It was nuts. Too bad we didn't have the camera for that one.

We really are happy to be here! Even if it doesn't look like it in this picture. This is our pre-tan picture. Harrison lathered himself up with sunscreen so he wouldn't burn his fair skin and I soaked myself in tanning oil. Harrison stayed nice and protected... I ended up looking like a lobster. Oh well.

This picture kind of looks fake, but its not! It is very real. The sky is THAT clear and THAT blue. It was such a beautiful day!

Do you like my sunglasses? I got them for a dollar at Target! They were in the dollar bin! It was awesome! Our day was so fun. We also spent some time at a huge and famous surf shop. It was the Ron Jon surf shop. It was really big. Harrison and I got a couple of suvinier t-shirts. After te beach we drove to one of the schools Harrison is thinking about. The school landscaping is really cool. It looks as if it was built in the middle of a jungle or something. There is thick foliage all over the place. It was really pretty. We have noticed something kind of strange here in Florida. There are Cracker Barrel resturaunts all over the place. It is weird. I wonder if it is because it is a "country" place to eat and since they are on the east coast it is kind of a novelty to have some of the west around. I dunno. It is kind of weird to us.

Oh... one more thing...

Why is it that the men that wear Speedos are the ones that should NOT!?!? What is that about? It is so weird. This guy obviously thought he was hot stuff or something. Why is it always like that?

It's weird because your american. Your not open to things that are different than yourself. Your history of the birth of you nation is proof. People will wear what they want to wear. Get over it... my question is "why do americans judge EVERYONE and think that their way of thinkin' is the only way"
