I woke up this morning, took one breath, and realized that my head cold had progressed quite a bit overnight. Sleeping outside probably didn't help. My nose was stuffed, my chest congested and I was sore from head to toe. In addition, I kept waking up all night and didn't get any quality sleep. I knew that the frantic pace of going up to the Kennedy Space Center and then driving four hours north to Savannah, Georgia wasn't going to work. We decided to keep a slow pace today and see where it takes us.
Today was set aside as nothing more than a beach day. We slept in pretty late (which is the norm these days) and then did some laundry. While Jasmine folded the clothes, I hopped on the internet to search for the best beach in the area. I narrowed it down to a couple, both of which have been named the top beach in the USA before.
To be honest, Jasmine was not very excited about the plan today. I don't know of any woman who would want to leave behind Miami Beach for a baseball game. This whole thing started a couple of days ago when I looked at the Tampa Bay Devil Rays schedule and discovered that we would be able to catch one of their home games. In reality we were already headed for the Tampa Bay area and I am just kidding about Jasmine being upset. We left Ft. Lauderdale at about 11am in the morning on our way northwest towards St. Petersburg.
