December 28, 2014  Day 37 South for Winter
Cocoa Village Marina
Cocoa, FL

After being here in Cocoa Village for ten days, it is time to update the blog! We spent a very nice Christmas Day on the boat.  It was strange not to be with family during the holiday, but we had a good day.  We opened our presents, chatted with family on Face Time, had traditional Christmas food – a breakfast brunch and a big dinner slightly scaled down for the two of us. We have enjoyed having the boat decorated for Christmas.

On December 23, we walked a few blocks into the village and attended a wonderful performance at the local Cocoa Community Playhouse. Margaret Cross performed in “A Christmas Card” and did not fail to amaze us with her incredible voice.

Yesterday, we took a walk to Riverfront Park which is also nearby. It is nicely designed with an amphitheater, fountains, play area, small boat access, and good landscaping. 

We also ventured out to do provisioning last Saturday. This involved taking a city bus to Walmart and taking a taxi back to the marina!  We will probably make one more trip while we are here.

Overall, we have had a quiet stay here.  We have been reading, listening to music, watching movies, etc. Some Loopers are arriving tomorrow, so we hope to get together.  We will eat at a couple of our favorite restaurants this week and also decide how we want to celebrate New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.  We love the warm weather which has been in the 70’s and 80’s!
