Well, not really … but Apple Photo Memories recently offered up a selection of close-to-beach photos, and I then took the idea to it’s extreme.
The photos here go back as far as a family holiday to Brixham, Devon in England in the 1970s, past our honeymoon in the Canary Islands, and to more recent locations including Gloucester and Rockport where we used to live …
Just a few weeks ago we began our Coast-To-Coast drive visiting the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, CA; and today we completed that trip by visiting the Atlantic Ocean at Cocoa Beach, FL … pictures of course!

We totalled 4,800 miles on our drive … Cheers!
Another 460 miles today took us from the edge of Florida, down to about halfway, and our second home 8002 near Walt Disney World; on the way we visited the “Truman House” and Seaside (where the Truman movie was filmed):
As well as covering about 315 miles today, we spent an hour in New Orleans … St Louis Cemetery #1, established 1789, was interesting, and some of the French Quarter was impressive – but Bourbon St was awful, and smelly, and the weather was just too hot and humid to be enjoyable!
Today we began in Louisiana, visited New Orleans, then traveled through Mississippi and Alabama before finally reaching Florida (though we still have more than close to 500 miles to go!); we also suffered the very worst wet weather ever seen – twice! Crazy rain, continuous lightning, and thunder so close to be heard even over the noise of the crashing rain on the car!
Another longer drive today, of about 460 miles, taking us from San Antonio, down past Houston to Galveston, across the (free!) ferry and on in to Louisiana, industrial-looking Lake Charles and stopping overnight in Lafayette, where we just had an excellent dinner 🙂
After our boat tour, we walked along the river and through the city, to the Alamo – a real piece of American History …
