Christmas in Florida: Holiday Preparations in Merritt Island

The day before Christmas Eve was pretty relaxed. We started the day at the fishmonger and did some prep for Christmas Eve dinner in the morning. Our Christmas Eve is all about the seafood, so living right near an ocean means that my parents were able to get some of the freshest fish around, including flounder and pompano.

In the afternoon, we introduced Roger to the wonder that is the Wawa lunch, which he quickly became obsessed with. Then we took out my parents' boat for a wander through the canal and out onto the Banana River. We had a lot of fun looking at the various birds around the area, though we forgot our binoculars. It was a little chilly out on the boat, so I was glad we had taken our sweaters, but still so much warmer than Vermont. I could get used to that!

That evening, we all headed out to El Tucan for margarita pitchers, tamales, and guacamole. Liz wasn't in love, but I enjoyed the food. To round out the night, we hit the hot tub and pool when we got back: a perfect ending to a relaxing day.
