Yet Another Beautiful Day in Melbourne Florida

By
Real Estate Broker with M & M Realty of Brevard Inc. BK629999

Today, a friend and I headed out to enjoy a pretty day in the Florida Sunshine. We crossed the Melbourne Causeway to Indialantic.  We figured we would go and see what was going on at the Boardwalk on 5th Ave. They were having a Skimboarding Contest.  There was quite a crowd.  There was a nice breeze and the waves were perfect good for the contest. We stayed for awhile and got some great shots.

Then we decided to head over to the Downtown Eau Gallie Founder's Day Fish Fry.  It took a couple times around to find a parking spot.

We sat and listened to the band that was playing for a bit. It was a bit of older southern rock - good stuff. There were some feet that were tapping. There wasn't a cloud in the sky, and no humidity in the air.

There was an art show with different artisans there and a woman was sitting at her canvas painting a picture in the midst of the crowd.  She was fully engrossed in what she was doing. Her painting will be beautiful when she finishes.

The Walgreens Health Mobile was on site. They were doing free health screenings.

We grabbed some fresh produce from the farmer's market.  My favorite - fresh fruit. I love it. It all looked so good and the prices were quite reasonable.

And, then the orchids caught my eye. The first person I thought of was Toni Weidman, as I know she loves orchids. And, I know she wanted to head over to the Founder's Day celebration.  She has quite the green thumb.

There was an entire section dedicated to the history of old Eau Gallie (a section of Melbourne). It took us on a walk through the 1900's. Having been in Melbourne since 1975, I remembered some of the places featured in the pictures. It was interesting.

There were a couple of neat old cars there, too.

I promised I would bring some pictures back for my friends, Kevin May,   June Tassillo , and Yolanda Gilbert. Wish you all could have been there.

We stayed at the Fish Fry for a couple of hours.  It was such a gorgeous day, being right near the Indian River Lagoon, with the fun, the sun, good food and entertainment.

We didn't want the day to end.

Sandy,

            You are such a doll; thanks so much for the pictures of the fish fry made me wish I had been there. I just love that Fish Fry cake it was gorgeous and looked yummy at the same time!  The pictures of the classic cars was great!  The picture of the art was very interesting and the fruit looked yummy! Thanks so much for getting the pictures I thoroughly enjoyed them. I may have to hop on a plane this spring and get down to your part of the world. Thanks again!

Toni, This is one of my favorite times of year also, when it's just starting to get warm, but there's no humidity in the air.  It's so pretty.

Yolanda, I am so glad you enjoyed the pictures. The only thing better would have been if you had been there. You'll have to come on down sometime and I can show you around the area.

Hi Paul, How have you been? So you hit the beach too?  Did you get to the Skimboard contest?  Hope that you are staying busy.

Sandy ~ I am so jealous dang it!!! What a beautiful day for this too it looked like.  Thanks for all the pictures to make me wish I was there.  Some cool cars there and I would have liked some fresh veggies & fruits. Sorry it took me so long to get over here.  Had a few days of being sick at home but much better now.  

Oh and I did make reservations for Daytona Bike Week. We will be there March 5-13.  How far away are you?
