Coming to America
The boys were amazed at the size of some of our vehicles. You don't see many monster trucks in a land where gas costs $9 per gallon.
Of course we had lunch at Grills at Port Canaveral.
One of our outings took us to the Inlet (pictured here), the Treasure Museum, across the old dirt Jungle Trail in Indian River County and back to the mainland for lunch at Captain Hirams in Sebastian.
Of course I had to take the kids to some of my favorite Cocoa Beach places. We ate lunch at Coconuts but the crew thought the Beach Shack sign was the coolest.
Cocoa Beach Country Club where, by this point, Pierre is totally into the Cocoa Beach lifestyle and playing a round barefooted.
Sister, Alesia, joined us for a round and proved that girls can hold their own on the golf course. Not pictured is surf every single day, fishing in the Banana River, airboat rides at the Lone Cabbage Fish Camp, excursions to Ron Jons, CB Surf Company, the mall and, Dad's favorite American store, Lowes. Today the last day before heading home to France will include kayaking through the Thousand Islands, the new Kelly Slater exhibit opening at the Cocoa Beach Surf Museum and a big cobia dinner with all the new friends and south Cocoa Beach neighbors gathered for a proper bon voyage. It's been quite a holiday. They will be missed.
