My wife, 8-year-old and I will be making our first trip (assuming I hear back from Palm Bay about our reservations) in July.
I convinced my wife this was a better plan than an all-inclusive so I'm really hoping this will be a great vacation and will probably be posting several questions in the weeks and months ahead.
My plan is to spend the first day close to Palm Bay. Day two checking out Georgetown, Day three checking out Stocking Island and day four going on a snorkeling excursion. My overall plan is to actively do nothing.
First question -- Does it make sense to perhaps mail myself some lighter non-perishable food? I'm thinking a box filled with coffee, sugar, cereal,chips, and cookies. And what about heavier items like soda and water. Are they so expensive on the island that it makes sense to load a bag of luggage up with a few 12 packs?
Second question -- Will we be able to get milk and cream at the grocery store? One of the few things in life I can't do without is cream for my coffee.
If anyone can give me a more detailed idea of what to expect in terms of the price of prepared meals I'd really love that info too.
Anyone thinking of going but having troulbe figuring out how to get here can drop me a line. I was able to figure out how to get here from Philly without paying an arm and a leg or spending a whole day traveling.
