After the final meeting for the #VBS, hubby and I head to the beach. It's about 3PM and it was 90 degrees which was really a scorcher afternoon. We went to Patrick Air Force Base area and decided to check out the Blockhouse Beach along South Atlantic. There were quite a few beach goers in groups. They were comfortable in their beach chairs. Some of them set up a tent.
We brought our beach chairs with a shade just enough to cover us from the scorching heat. The sea breeze cools down the heat tremendously so; we actually stayed there for more than 3 hours. The sound of the big waves was so relaxing.
Hubby walked along the shoreline barefoot watching the people surfing and paddling. The waves are huge but, not enough for surfing. I noticed that there were a lot of children swimming while their parents were just waiting on their tents listening to music and eating.
Hubby enjoyed walking on the shoreline and while doing that, he called his friends telling them where he was. He came back with a smile on his face and humming a song, LOL. Would it be nice to buy a house along the beach area? It is nice but, when hurricane comes, it probably is a terrifying ordeal.
I got my swimsuit but, did not swim LOL. All the time, I was under the shade. My skin turns brown so easily so; I am actually afraid of being tanned so fast. I am already brown you know.
Look at my husband, he was busy talking to his friends.
Yap, there is no lifeguards here. There were indeed low flying aircraft since this beach is in the vicinity of Patrick Air Force Base. I don't see any turtles though.
Look at the top of the trees, there were black birds prying on vulnerable animals down below. Anyway, the beach is clean, the parking space is big and it is free. This is a public beach and we like this beach. Would I recommend this beach? Yep. If you are in Cocoa Beach, just drive past Ron Jon heading to Patrick Air Force Base and Blockhouse Beach is next to Table's Beach, front of North Housing of Pafb. Have fun and enjoy.
