I am at the Sea Air Motel, in Cocoa Beach. We had a brilliant day and night. We got to Coaca around 10:00am yesterday and parked behind the venue. Cocoa is a lovely little town. Grace, David, Poppy and I come here every year with Tino and Bonnie. I am sad that they are all not here at the moment.

Chili Peppers is the club we played, owned by Robbie who was so kind and helpful. From the moment I got there he gave me the key to his house, drove me there so I could shower. Then he took me to get my washing done.

I walked into the Laundromat???, and was greeted by this little old lady. I have not been in one for about 20 years, so I looked around for instructions, pointers. She looked at me and asked if I needed help. Well she actually did all my washing for me, folded it and put it back in my bag; she was lovely.

Next we checked into the motel. I thought (stupidly) that the band had gotten me a room. I discovered they had not, when all the rooms were taken. This is where we met Jackie. Jackie works and basically runs the place. She is from Victoria in London and completely mad. She decided to cook the band dinner at her house. We all turned up there and ate shepherds pie. She and her family Dave, Darren and his wife were all so hospitable.

The show was great. The Beat were brilliant as usual; we also all got a little bit closer.

After the show I hooked up with a great bunch of people from Orlando. One of them owns the Orlando Brewing Company and had a spare bed in his room, so I got a bed at the hotel after all. We had a blast and look forward to seeing them all again. We all went to breakfast this morning at "the Cuban". I went there before with Grace and family. We had a huge fight with the waiter. He basically told us in Russian to go forth and multiply....it was ugly.

I am now going for a walk on the beach. The rest of the band are still in bed. we leave soon for somewhere else.

I really miss my Gracie and kids..................

Stef, you are REALLY good at this! It just makes me wish I was there even more.

I'm sorry you're missing your family, but you'll be home soon. I love how your face & eyes light up when you talk about them. I hope to meet them one day.

Maybe I will when I talk you guys into a lil tour idea that I've had. :-D

My brain is still trying to figure out how I can come see you guys 1 or 2 more times.
