Simple Pleasures!

Once in a while I take half day of my work off to spend sometime with my Jorge. Jorge is a pilot and his working hours are all over the place, every month is different. We have some great months where his days off are compatible with mine (Saturday and Sunday). But there are other months that nothing match in our schedules, when I am working, he is off, when he is working, I am off… So some times we have to make the time! That was the case of Wednesday 4/23/14. I took 1/2 day off for us to go to the beach in the afternoon. I was excited thinking that the beach was going to be empty, not too many people, plenty of free parking. Awww the simple pleasures! You know, must people are working in the middle of the week, right?


It is funny how after more than 8 months of not going to the beach we basically forgot a lot of things that we were needing at the beach. We wanted to be a simple trip to the beach, some drinks, maybe a bag of chips… and the Beach! Well when we got to Cocoa we realize that we didn’t buy a beach umbrella that was on our list when we stop to buy the ice. So how convenient it is, that in the area that we like to park, (because of the free parking they offer by Ron Jon and Cocoa Beach Surf Shop) we can buy our beach umbrella, maybe a little bit more expensive than Wal-Mart, but oh well…

We start going around through the parking lot to find a free parking and then go to the store. Unfortunately we couldn’t find any free parking available. I didn’t understand! Why there were so many people at the beach on a Wednesday? After few minutes we decided to pay the $10 parking, we didn’t have any quarters for the parking with meters. “But it’s ok” we tought, “the most important thing is that we are here! At the beach!” “Lets get the umbrella and to the beach!!”



After we got our cute colorful umbrella we settle our things down, we were ready, and then we realize that we didn’t bring any towels… Oh boy! Thanks God for the good spirit in us that we didn’t care. We decided to stick with the simple pleasures of our little trip on a Wednesday afternoon. We had a great time and I have some proof of that! 🙂




Until then…
