We got into Cocoa Beach and headed straight to our Airbnb rental. We stayed in an awesome upstairs apartment right near the 13th street beach. The lovely couple who own the house live downstairs and they were really cool. They work for Life is Good and are obviously living up to the company's name! The place was very spacious, beautiful, and clean. The open layout and huge bathroom were incredible.
The wine bottle chandelier was awesome and a close up of the rustic dining table...life is good!
The amazing bathroom and view! I may need both of these in my every day life I think. Well truly just give me the view...I'll take it from a hut over a luxurious bathroom any day.
Once we dropped off our stuff, we immediately took Townes for a walk on the beach. We knew dogs weren't allowed on the beach, but since our house was so close to the beach, we couldn't resist. We figured we'd plead ignorance and hope for the best! We went to the market to get food for the weekend and then just laid on the beach as the nightly storm came in.
I may have even drifted off to the breeze and sound of the waves...
Our sweet hosts ended our evening by bringing up some homemade, fresh-out-of-the-oven cinnamon rolls. Not good for the body, but good for the taste buds :)
On our second day in Brevard County (shark attack capital of the world, by the way), we headed to Canova Beach, because it's the only dog-friendly beach. It was thankfully only about a 10 minute drive from our place. We spent the morning playing on the beach and relaxing in the sand.
I love this picture - big smiles + the beach. J really planned a great trip!
This photo makes me laugh every time - Townes's nose!
He would watch us like a hawk when we were in the water...
After we dropped Townes back at the house (he was exhausted), we grabbed the longboard that our sweet host was gracious enough to let us borrow and hurried out to the beach to surf. We surfed for a bit before the nightly storm came in. Poor Townes did not like the fireworks at all so we laid low and watched the fireworks and sunset from the balcony.
Plus, who needs fireworks when you have a huge jacuzzi tub and champagne?
I'll share the last part of our trip next...happy hump day!
