A great day with the family!

My sister, brother in law, niece and nephew are in town. We celebrated our Christmas with them on the 6th. Today we went to Merritt Island on the east coast to look at a house they saw on the internet that they were interested in. Can you say beautiful and unique and right on a canal that leads to the Banana River that leads out to the Atlantic Ocean?!? The house is 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, close to 3,000 square feet with a screen enclosed built in pool. The canal has a floating dock and if my sister moves in there will be a boat lift installed. The house has many upgrades as the owner is a builder. My husband and brother in law will be fishing fools.

After dinner we went to Port Canaveral and ate at Rusty's. This is a restaurant that sits right on the port and you can see cruise ships such as the Disney Cruise Ship sail right by as you eat. I had a caeser salad with blackened grouper and it was delicious!

This is a pelican that was hanging outside the restaurant. They really are the funniest looking bird. I wish I could have been quick enough to take a picture when he opened his beak so wide that the top and bottom were completely vertical.

Afterwards, we went to Cocoa Beach and enjoyed the sunshine and the warm sand on our feet.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that my sister and my best friend will move back and be nearer to us.
