Day 4: A day at the Beach!

May 5, 2009
Disney's Vero Beach Resort

We finally had a day to sleep in a little bit. We woke up around 7ish, and I fed Graydon a little on the balcony while watching a beautiful sunrise. Having only really stayed on the Gulf Coast side and only seeing sunsets, it was special to see the sunrise with my own son!

Janice and Graydon rested a little longer while I went down to get Janice a coffee and both of us something to eat. The night before we purchased the refillable mugs that the resort offers for coffee and pop. We were surprised that they sold them as we thought they they only sold them in Orlando. We bought them with the idea we would use them in Orlando too.

We ate, showered and put our bathing suits on to spend some time at the pool and beach.

The pool area was very nice and not too busy. This was Graydon's first time in a pool, so it was lots of fun. He loved it!

We had lunch by the pool and went and dipped our feet in the ocean. The water wasn't a bad temperature. The sand was kinda course; not as nice as it is in Clearwater.

We headed back to the room for a bit, dressed and went for a walk around the resort, to try and get Graydon to nap. I want to mention again that the resort is wonderful. It reminded me of a small all-inclusive resort, that you would find in the Caribbean, but nicer.

We shopped in the resort gift shop (and so the Disney shopping began...) and relaxed in the rocking chairs on the front porch of the resort. What a way to spend an afternoon!

I took some pictures, walked back to the room, fed Graydon and went back to the main building for dinner at Shutters. We weren't in the mood to go out driving and we wanted to take advantage of the bounce back coupon.

Dinner was great again and we retired early, as we needed to start out early the next day for Orlando.
