Cocoa Beach Shenanigans from the Truckster

“Go Manatees!” That’s what John and I were yelling at the Space Coast Stadium during this afternoon’s Brevard County Manatees baseball game. We rolled up with the Truckster and had a pretty fantastic time meeting fans. ‘Manny’ the mascot even came over to say “hello” and flashed his pearly whites; it’d be pretty epic if HomeAway ended up giving one of those prized $5000 vacations to a ball game loving marine mammal! John did a lap around the field, and the team manager, coaches, and players couldn’t believe the special appearance that was cruizin’ past their dugout.

Go Manatees!

After a hot dog at the park, we dropped into Cocoa Beach’s very own Ron Jon Surf Shop. It’s probably the biggest, nicest and most happening place on the beach! Plus the Truckster fit right in since they’ve got their trademark woody wagons parked out front with surfboards on top.

The Truckster fit right in!

John had practically worn a whole straight through the sole of his flip-flops, so we definitely did some shopping at the store. (He was really picky and spent a good 15 to 20 minutes looking for the pair with the best arch support…but you didn’t hear that from me. Haha – now he keeps commenting on how amazing his new ‘kicks’ are. Be sure to comment on them if you run into us on road tomorrow!

Next stop: Hotlanta, ‘the hip-hop capital of the world,’ ATLANTA!

Now, if would only stop raining I might get a chance to try out our Orlando rental’s backyard pool. ps – did I mention it has a space room?

    I saw yall at the stoplight by my house in Gainesville, FL! I pulled up to the light, in my wagon, and couldn’t believe that right next to me was the good ol’ wagon queen family truckster! I was the crazy mom in the black benz wagon honking and trying to take a picture with my phone. Thanks for cruisin’ through gville- it made my day to see the family truckster.
