LOCATION: Cocoa Beach, FL
There is something magical about the beach. I’m drawn to it while also being completely terrified by it all at the same time! Multiple times during the day we would adventure out of the ac and walk up to the shore. Each time I was surprised by the bath-like temperatures of the Atlantic Ocean. The Ron Jon shop near our resort would always announce the water temperature – 84 degrees. That’s insane if you grew up near mountain lakes & rivers made up of snow melt.
We found ourselves eating dinner each night right on the beach where we could listen to the waves and partake in the happy hour specials. Plus the breeze always picked up around sunset and helped (kind of) cool us off! I have a tendency to carry around a light jacket or cardigan for when the sun sets and the night turns cool (it’s habit from my Colorado life). Here in Florida we didn’t have to worry about that at all. The sun would set, the water would still be warm, and we would still be just as hot & sticky 😉
I love this flowy dress from Old Navy & I’m so glad I brought it to Florida with me. It was perfect for dancing in the ocean as the sun set. and not passing out in the hot Florida sun 😉
