Vacation: Cocoa Beach & Banana River Florida

I forgot how much I enjoy being beachside by the ocean 
I am really fortunate I had the chance to relax by Cocoa Beach this week
Here are a few pictures from our trip

I absolutely love a quiet deserted beach
This was the Atlantic Ocean just steps from our beachside guesthouse which I wrote about here

He found all the nice unique seashells :)

Look at how this piece of rock had little seashells embedded into it

This was an awesome one he found as well - it looks like a leaf was fossilized into it

This seashell was by far the most unique that I have seen

And this was the back of that seashell

A hole in the sand that a crab dug out

The seabird on the right gave us a good laugh :)
It was a relentless bird and it kept squawking at the poor bird beside it
It was funny to see how well the one bird ignored the one squawking at it and how it stood its ground instead of moving away

Do you happen to know what kind of bird this is? 
It looks like a seagull with an interesting hairline :)

Ooo I was most impressed with this pelican
The tuff of feathers on his head looked so soft and cute! 

Out in the distance is the Kennedy Space Centre at Cape Canaveral 

Do you see the fin of a dolphin out in the distance?

Other exciting wildlife siting we saw were dolphins!!!
One of the fishermen we met on the beach pointed out the first dolphin we saw and from there we saw a couple of others while walking along Cocoa Beach :)


One place to view a beautiful sunset near Cocoa Beach is the boat docking area at Banana River

This reminded me of the mangroves that Dale & I kayaked among in Bonita Springs which I wrote about here

It automatically made me think that there could be dolphins and manatees in Banana River, both of which have been seen in the river
Banana River is in fact a lagoon

The beautiful sunset followed me home on the plane :)

Where was your last vacation?

When you think of a vacation, what destination place do you think of?

Review: Fruits & Passion Blueberry Nourishing Butter

I'm usually not a huge fan of body butters, particularly the ones from The Body Shop, however I quite like this Fruits & Passion Blueberry Nourishing Butter. This is probably my fourth or fifth container

I love how rich and thick the consistency is and I especially love how it smells
It is a lightly scented of blueberries and not in a synthetic way at all

In terms of moisturizing it's typical of body butters to sit on your skin more so than absorbing into your skin. I use it mainly for the scent. So I mix this with my favourite HG Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Skin Lotion which does an awesome job with moisturizing :)

Have you tried this body butter from Fruits & Passion?

What is your favourite skincare lotion?
