After enjoying the day at KSC, we left around 3:30 in the afternoon and made our way north up I-95 for the second part of my anniversary surprise for Cindy. I had reserved a hotel room on the beach at Daytona Beach Shores for Monday night so that we could wake up Tuesday morning and watch the sunrise from the beach, something Cindy LOVES to do. Here's a picture from our balcony that afternoon.
After getting our room and showering, we went to dinner at a nice Italian restaurant across the street from the hotel and then took a walk along the beach, hand in hand, in the darkness of the evening. After such a full day, we slept like babies that night.
We had set our alarm to get us up about 30 minutes before sunrise so that we would have time to get dressed, get our cameras and walk down to the beach and be there before the sun began to come up across the water. We each took hundreds of photos. One of mine is below and I have uploaded others to my Flickr page.
I was happy that I got to surprise Cindy for our anniversary and even happier that she enjoyed what I had planned as a celebration of our marriage.
Thanks again, baby, for the best 12 years of my life.
