This was my first trip to florida and i was very impressed with the beauty of this state. We landed in Orlando and rented a car to drive to Cape Canaveral where my cruize would be leaving out of. Be careful driving on the 95 i belive it was because cops sit there and wait for dumb tourists to speed by them e.g. such as us. He luckily let us go with a warning just obey the speed laws.

The following day we took the car north along the coast route 1 which is similiar to California's 1 Pacific coast highway. It was a very scenic road and so green. There were huge trees on either side of us the center divider was all nice lush green grass as well as the sides of the road. There was no trash to be seen at all and everybody and there mother was pulled over off the highway to do some fishing in the atlantic.

We arrive at Daytona and go to the world's biggest harley davidson shop! it was pretty cool! Next we went to Daytona beach and i was expecting g-strings and girls everywhere! i think we saw one girl under the age of 60 but the cool thing was you can drive on the beach!!! i've never done this legally so it was a blast. Then i got my first swim in the atlantic ocean which was a thrill for me as well.

Our next stop along the way was Daytons Speedway. Not much of a racing fan but its still cool to check out. Luckily i was with 2 good looking girls and they worked over the security gaurd and let us take some cool pictures by the tunnel to get to the track and we climbed up the side grass hill to steal a peek at the track. It was pretty neat to see the huge track with the walls going up the side.

We headed back to Cape Canaveral and next decided to check out Coco beach. Again i was expecting white sands with girls and piers. But it was a weedy beach with grass and bushes growing out of it; not fine sand like you would think. I guess Miami in the summer is what i was looking for in Daytona and Coco Beach. Coco Beach had this surf shop called Ron Jon Surf Shop i think its the biggest in the world. It was 2 buildings and one was 2 stories tall. There is also a shark tank in the one story one as well as a bar + grille. The chicken ceasar salad was bomb and the beer was good. They had these cool beer pitchers where they stuck ice sticks up the bottom side of it to keep it cool, purty neat i'll tell you. We then retired to the Raddison and went night swimming. There have a bitching pool there with all these rock formations. It makes for a nice 15' rock jump just don't get caught. It's pretty shallow to i hit my butt pretty good but it's all worth it in the end.

The next day the cruise adventure begins...
