John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Another Perfect Day for Throwing Shoes in Cocoa Beach, Florida

Another Perfect Day for Throwing Shoes in Cocoa Beach, Florida

There is a horseshoe tournament every Saturday at 2 pm at Jump's Tiny Tavern in Cocoa Beach. It's a great way to spend a sunny afternoon and the beach is just minutes away. Owners Angel and Steve make sure everyone is happy and quite often the regulars bring in crock pot delights with nachos. Mike's is a favorite tasty treat. Bartender Cheryl buys pizza many times to thank her customers and Angel is always making sure everything runs smoothly. Welcome to "CHEERS" Cocoa Beach style.

Even if you don't participate, It's a great spectator sport with lot's of thrills and nail biting finishes,

What a great way to start the weekend. The park across the street from me has a couple of horseshoe pits, and they get a lot of use.

Hi John, This is such a wonderfully illustrated and  feel good story and continues to frame you a person. A person that loves life, loves people and knows exactly how to celebrate life itself! And then documents so beautifully. Well done!

Al and Peggy - Here's me with the winning horseshoe trophy from a little while ago. You and your partner have to throw some awesome shoes in order to win it!
