After the Hard Rock Cafe we headed to the coast, Cocoa Beach to be exact. We stayed in a beautiful little Inn called The Inn At Cocoa Beach http://www.theinnatcocoabeach.com/
It is a self contained oasis! They have a beautiful walled in court yard. The hotels and buildings are not right on the beach in this area. The beach and dunes are all public. From the second story, where our room was located, we could see the beach and the full moon!
The next day we walked along the beach a few miles to a pier where the fishermen fish and the surfers surf.
What a treat to be in such a beautiful place. We enjoyed the contrast and the opportunity to be in this wild, open place!
