I Dream of Jeannie historical marker.

The spring trip this year was a cruise on the Carnival Sunshine to the Southern Caribbean, visitng Curaçao, Aruba and Grand Turk. I had not visited the ABC islands before or the Turks & Caicos, so this was all new territory! We arrived in Cape Canaveral the day before our cruise was to sail. As is our usual custom, we drove from Springfield, Virginia, over two days, spending a night at Santee, South Carolina. In Cape Canaveral, our hotel was again the Marriott Residence Inn. No launches from the Kennedy Space Center to see this evening, as there had been last year.

Before heading to dinner in neighboring Cocoa Beach, I wanted to see the I Dream of Jeannie historical marker at Lori Wilson Park. I'd read about it on the Roadside America app. Installed in 1996, the marker commemorates Cocoa Beach as the setting of the 1960s TV sitcom I Dream Of Jeannie. (It had to do with an astronaut who discoveres Jeannie the Genie in her magic bottle.)
