My husband was telling me that we would be moving when he got his new promotion.
- I was excited to be moving, but I wanted to know where we were moving to? He told me we would be moving to Cocoa, Florida.
I thought he meant Cocoa Beach, and I got excited. He said it wasn’t Cocoa Beach, but just Cocoa. I wasn’t so sure I wanted to move to some drinkwater town. He told me that Cocoa Beach was a small city that sat in Brevard County. It was 83 feet above sea level and the highest point in the county. I began to read about Cocoa, FL and I found out it had a rich history. I loved history and I wanted to visit every spot that made it such an exciting place to visit. Cruise ships that came into Port Canaveral would let off their passengers so they could take excursions and day trips into Cocoa, Florida. I asked him if it was going to be warm there. I had heard that cities that are along the ocean, never had cold weather. I was hoping to ditch all my winter clothing, when I ditched the furnace. I was excited to be moving somewhere that had heat all year round. I didn’t like the cold. I then asked him if they were going to provide us with a house that had good air conditioning. My husband laughed and said that everything was air conditioned in Florida. We had a temporary apartment until we could find our own home in Cocoa, Florida. I told him I didn’t care where it was, as long as we had air conditioning and a beach.
