Art Festival Weekend

Healthy sea oats in south Cocoa Beach.

This is Art Festival weekend in Cocoa Beach. Streets in downtown will be lined with artists displaying their works along with food vendors and live music. It's a great time to stroll the streets and visit with neighbors and visitors. On the space front, Shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to land at Kennedy Space Center this morning.

New swell in town

I shot the pic above around 7 AM this morning just after high tide. Our 20 mile buoy is reading 10.2 feet at 14.8 seconds, a powerful deep water swell from the nor'easter that formed off New England from the remnants of Hurricane Ida. Looks to be a great weekend for surf with the wind out of the west. Hit it if you can.

Art in the Park

Art in the Park at Lori Wilson Park in Cocoa Beach today. Various artists with paintings, clothing, carvings, jewelry, etc. set up displays in the breezy conditions. Sean Slater's Skin Cancer Surf Contest benefit is going on a few blocks south behind Coconuts. Last night's concert with G-Love at Coconuts was a blast. Kelly sat in on a few with G-Love and the crowd loved it. Costume party tonight at the same location with the same crew.

South Cocoa Beach gets a another haircut

This is how the biggest south Cocoa Beach developer takes care of our dunes. Get the lawnmower and mow all the natural vegetation down to the sand. I suppose the idea is that the overpriced units will now sell having been unattractive because of the sea oats and other minimal natural vegetation. This is the same developer that massacred the dune at 24th St. and now is at it again at Ocean Paradise. If you are considering buying a new condo (not a great idea right now unless you can get one for half the current outrageous prices) please reconsider giving your money to a developer with this kind of blatant disregard for our shared resources. He's giving a big FU to all of us every time he does this.
