Titusville, FL

After leaving Smyrna, we decided to stop for a night at Titusville. It's only about 50 miles south, so it wasn't because of the long drive. I have a girlfriend that lives in neighboring Rockledge and we thought we'd take advantage of our driving route and stop to visit. Thankfully she didn't mind the 24-hour notice.

Laura and Bob drove up to our campsite at Manatee Hammock County Park prior to going out to dinner. We decided on a Malaysian restaurant so we could eat meat-free tonight. After four days at the Thomases, we needed to get back to our normal diet. Laura and Andy both ordered the Basil Fried Rice - comes with string beans, mushrooms, snow peas, and basil. Sounds yummy, right? Well, much to our surprise, the Basil Fried Rice arrives loaded with shrimp and calamari and no vegetables! After asking our waiter, who just came to the States 4 months ago, about this - his response was "It's the menu's fault". We almost burst out laughing right there.
Anyway, they fixed the meals, gave us a free desert, and gave Bob & Laura coupons for their next visit.

Our one-night stopover in Titusville turned into three nights. The WIFI at the park worked great and we were getting caught up on stuff. We got to see Laura again for lunch on Wednesday. We went to her house and then walked along the Intercoastal to Cocoa Village. Had a great lunch at Osorio's. Andy gave this pizza a "10" - which is an almost impossible rating in his mind. Cocoa Village is an adorable little shopping area. I wish I had more time to shop, but we had to get back to work. We cursed the weatherman on our walk back because they said the rains would stop in the morning, but we got soaked. Good thing we had our raincoats with us...but we had left them in the car back at Laura's.
Titusville is located on the "Space Coast" - think Cape Canaveral. There are lots of museums here, the Space Center, and some great kayaking spots. But we couldn't take advantage of any of those on this visit. At least the RV Park was on the intercoastal so we could look at the water periodically. The Intercoastal is so wide here, it doesn't feel like it could be part of the same waterway in Ft Lauderdale.
