Here today

There's a good chance that these beach flowers will not survive the swell that is coming from Hurricane Irene. Long period swell is already showing in Cocoa Beach this morning and the storm is still around the corner raging through the Turks and Caicos. If the forecast track is correct and she passes about 120 miles off the coast, we will probably have significant beach erosion even though the winds will not be strong. Surf could easily be in the 10' plus range.

    Colorful flowers! We appreciate your blog and photos of your slice of this town we do so love to visit!! For 10 years we've been coming to Cocoa Beach in May & October for a week long stay each time. Only 6 more weeks until the next visit....we can't wait. We'll be watching checking your blog through the weekend and beyond for your reports of Irene. Thanks!
