Now, for all of the nay sayers, we are not talking about a case of abuse here. This is a couple who has become very comfortable with one another. Way too comfortable. The bills, the kids, the job. All of the demands of life have a way of wearing you down and out. We’ve all experienced it in one way or another.
While perusing the different hotels available to us, we noticed that a lot of them didn’t have the amenities we had hoped for: a private bathroom and air conditioning, for instance. We didn’t want to share a bathroom or be uncomfortable at night, so we decided to go for a familiar hotel chain. May chains were well out of our price range. However, the holiday inn Brent Cross seemed perfect for us. The description said that it was located near a tube station and had a free shuttle back and forth to the tube. It also said that there was shopping nearby, as well as other attractions. Plus, the restaurant in the lobby was really appealing to us because we knew that we were going to do a lot of sight-seeing.
Christmas Cannon (Trans-Siberian Orchestra): Christmas is the time for TSO to shine. This is their best known and most recognizable song, and is on iTunes list of the top 100 most downloaded holiday and christmas songs. The foundation of this song is “Cannon in D minor” by Pachelbel. Perhaps you don’t know this one by name, but you will recognize it when you hear it. This is another sweet and beautiful melody that stirs the soul.
Longboat Key Towers – This is a particular favorite of mine. This is an older building however it has been maintained very well. It sits on the beach, behind the gates of the Longboat Key Club. The units offer beach and Gulf of Mexico views to the west as well as views to the east looking at downtown Sarasota and the bay.

Cocoa Beach is obsessed with surfing and has been called “the surfing capital of the east coast.” Our family was there last october. We were surprised how many surfers we saw riding the waves at that time of year. We stayed ten days and were able to swim in an unheated pool four of those days. Granted we’re Yankees and were coming from a much colder climate, but there were other people swimming in the hotel’s pool. So, we weren’t the only ones who found the water temperature to be just fine. My husband and children were able to swim in the ocean, something I chose to pass up. They swore the water wasn’t cold, but i dunno. Autumn in Cocoa Beach also means there’s going to be a mean volleyball game on the beach.
