On day 3 we started the day by visiting Bass Pro Shops “Outdoor World” (also known as the Fisherman’s Mecca). It’s a good thing that we don’t have an Outdoor World store in Oregon, else Jon would surely be bankrupt. We then traveled to the “space coast” of Florida and toured Cocoa Beach, the village of Cocoa, and Titusville.
We did a little boat shopping (this one is too small).
It’s amazing how many shells are just laying around on the beach here. The weather has been great, sunny every day, with highs between 70 and 80 degrees!
President Bush was in Orlando on Friday, and we saw Air Force One parked at an Air Force base on the space coast. That explains the fighter jet escorts and the armed military folks all around.
