Last Florida Sunset

As the sun disappeared into the Indian River, and we listened to a guitarist as he played "I'm leaving, on a jet plane - don't know when I'll be back again...", I of course struggled to remain tearless, not wanting to spoil our romantic sunset dinner with an emotional breakdown.

Sometimes these perfect moments just get to you. At the table next to us was a toddler about Lukas' age, making us miss our little guy even more (we left him with my mom, who was anxious to babysit).

Sunset Grill on State Road 520 is an amazong little place. In fact, I'm surprised my Mom or sisters haven't mentioned it to us before. Granted, the food is a bit overpriced, but it's directly on the intercoastal waterway, making it a favorite for seafaring locals preferring to travel by boat.

After dinner, Tobi watched the baby while I went up to the Cocoa Beach Pier with Mom. Unfortunately, we got there at 10, which is precisely when everything closes on a weekday, but we enjoyed walking on the Pier, then beach, a bit before returning home.

And now, it's time to pack our bags and say goodbye once more. Today we fly out to Albequeque, where we'll spend a week with my Grandparents before driving out to The Grand Canyon, and Las Vegas.
Until next time!
