Day 12: St. Augustine - Cocoa Beach
- Kennedy Space Center (We spent 5 hours here roaming around and saw some pretty cool stuff!! we did and hour and a half bus tour which took us to the places where you view the take off of rockets and the making of....neat! We also did the simulator ride of what it feels like to to take off in the space ship and apparently its meant to be be pretty realistic but I think not, coz if so I could be an astronaut easy peasy!!)
- Cocoa Beach (its 25degrees here....'sweltering hot' says Tahns, but seeing as we have come from the negatives it does feel hotter than just 25, so we went down the beach for a wander, and around the shops....the funniest thing happened when I went off for a walk....this guy was reversing in his car as I was walking on the footpath and he felt so inclined to yell rudie things out to me whilst reversing, wasn't paying attention and reversed right into a brand new pick up truck behind him...sucker! and the boy who works at the supermarket asked me out....he was probably 18....anyways im killing it in Florida wooo bring on Miami tomorrow!! haha)
So the ghost tour started out as T-dog being the toughie me being the wimp but as the tour went on I decided it was a load of shit, even though the stories were fun to listen too and Tahns was tearing up! haha what a 360!! but we did freak ourselves out back at the hotel and pretty safe to say we were both glad to be out of creepy St.Augustines!! In a minute we are all heading out to a seafood restaurant by the pier, but are then all taking it easy as the next 2 nights in Miami are meant to be HUGE party nights where we have to get dressed up and get into exclusive hotels so looking forward to it massively!! Spoke to mum on skype, saw TIGER, cried a bit....having a homesick day because it feels like we have been gone for an eternity coz we do sooo much in a day! But great weather, great places and great activities coming up the next couple of weeks so I am predicting homesickness lasts about 30 minutes!! Love to look at my pandora bracelet, havent taken it off and my scarfe mumsie made is a great reminder of some pretty cool parentals im missing (big dork I am I know) at home!
