We said we’d sleep in, and we did. Oh, it felt good to take full showers again!
There was a small flea market happening in the parking lot of our next door neighbor, the Presbyterians.
Next, we met some unpaid servants trimming shrubs in the church prayer garden next to the UMC sanctuary on our other side. They have a wall of brass plaques dedicated to the persons whose cremains are scattered in this ground. Jim and Judy take care of this service, and work with the Food Pantry here at First UMC of Cocoa Beach. We’ll try to help them out tomorrow afternoon when they next serve.
Then we drove over the rte 528 causeway to Merritt Island Post Office but the mail had not arrived yet (‘Sir, it is Christmas Season. Maybe Monday’). Then we drove back to Cocoa Beach for their annual Christmas Parade.
As advertised, it ran from 2 pm through 3 pm. And it was also as our friend at the library had said, quaint, small townish, and fun. I picked up a bunch of thrown candy and helped a little fellow beside us get a whole lot more.

Back to the coach and a sunny afternoon of reading for Mona and the next third of the DVD MAGNIFICENT SEVEN for me.
A quiet evening is planned for we have to rise early tomorrow. Sunday School is at 8:45 here!
