Cocoa Beach From the South

The curve of the coast becomes more apparent when looking north from south Cocoa Beach. Obviously low tide and very little wind. The lack of beachgoers gives the location away even if the condo buildings don't.

Just Another Busy Day

Busy, beautiful winter beach day in south Cocoa Beach. The typical beach crowd is in attendance. West wind and temps in the low 70s.

Shack at the Beach

There may not be a pot of gold at the bottom of this rainbow but we know there are $1 Busch cans in abundance, plenty of bicycle parking and a very friendly cat.

Screwed at the Port

After promising boaters a big field to park trucks and trailers until the new ramps are finished, someone decided that we could get by with 27 parking spots. The field is fenced off, there is no staging area and starting with the 28th boat, drivers will have to find a parking spot afar for the trailer. Thanks a bunch.

An Icon Goes Down

Whenever there's an early ice storm up north, people expect to see lots of broken trees. In Florida, apparently 40 degrees with no wind and no precipitation is enough winter weather to break trees. Arrived at the office this morning to find our iconic live oak with a massive limb on the ground.

TGIF Sunrise

It was a beautiful 44 degrees this morning as the sun peaked over the edge of the world. Wunderground has us predicted to be below 70 until early next week. You'd think it was 44 below the way the school kids were bundled up this morning at the bus stops.

Path to Paradise

Somewhere in south Cocoa Beach is a winding path to a deserted beach. No public parking, no dune crossover, no lifeguards, no tourists, no one on the beach except the occasional neighbor or beach bicycle cruising by. The water is still warm even though it's January and the pompano have been biting. The swell from yesterday is still lingering and a couple of the boys are out there beyond the shorebreak trading waves.

Dubai @ Port Canaveral

This is the new Exploration Tower at Port Canaveral. The $21 million, 22,000-square-foot Center is the design of GWWO Architects, also responsible for the George Washington Visitor Center and Museum at Mount Vernon. Haley Sharpe Design, creators of displays for famous attractions including the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, is developing exciting interactive exhibits unique to the Exploration Tower and the Space Coast.

It's open to the public. Stop by and enjoy the view over the Port from the observation deck.
