"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

Cocoa was another wonderful small town, it was also the home of Jeannie in a bottle and her astronaut master from the TV series  "I dream of Jeannie".  Located between Cape Canaveral  Air Force Base and the Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa and its neighbor Cocoa Beach quadrupled in size when NASA launched its space program in 1959 at Cape Canaveral. This sleepy town got its first taste of tourism from the thousand of visitors who traveled to see the space launches.

Rich and Jeanne drove up from Hudson Florida, 3 hours away, to spend some time with us. Here we are at Normans restaurant, thanks again for lunch Jeanne and Rich.

We stayed at Cocoa for 2 nights, while there George & Kathy on "MV Spey" came into the marina.  We met Kathy's brother Paul, who was visiting them. Beverages and great conversation were enjoyed by all  of us aboard their boat.  Hoping to connect again somewhere along the way.

Marilyn, Sheron and Sue, thanks for your comments, it is always so nice to hear from you.
