Many folks do not know where we are however when you say Brevard County keeps cities such us Cocoa Beach or We are Home of the Kennedy Space Center aka where we launch the Space Shuttle, they pop and say oh yes! I know where that is! The above is a photo from one of the launches in 2008, As a local Brevard Resident watching the Space Launch is a true privlage. There are only two more launches left until the program expires. The next launch is set for this Monday NOVEMBER 1st at 4:20 pm.

The big show is this week end but I rode my bike down to the Cocoa Beach Pier tonight with my trusty Canon A 630 8mp in the back bag. I'll have my Nikon D 90 ready for the main event this week end. It's going to be an AWESOME show! Below is a C17A Globemaster replica. Cocoa Beach Air Show Website USAF Thunderbird at the Cocoa Beach Pier. Doing Chin Ups at the Pier. You Go Girl!

The 46th annual Our Saviour's Fair was held on Oct. 15th, 16th and 17th this year. It's a tradition here in Cocoa Beach and a great place to find old friends you haven't seen in a while. Marla and I had their famous Kolbassa with sauerkraut and a grilled chicken shish-ka-bob. Of course, I washed it all down with an ice cold beer while making new freinds in the picnic area :-) There is a draw for $10,000 and we have 3 tickets so I'll let you know if we win! Upside down and lovin' it! The Amazing "Aqua Ball". Kids just love it! The Zipper - Guaranteed to make you dizzy! Break a balloon and win a Groucho Marks fuzzy banana. The Supershot Fast Drop. Fun and games. Ride a bear. The end of a sunny Sunday afternoon at the fair. Life is just better in Cocoa Beach, Florida! Long and short term r...

Some larger waves were still rolling in at 6:30 on Monday but nothing like the 8 footers caused by Hurricane Igor Sat. and Sun. Bermuda took the brunt of it so far. These photos were taken on my evening bike ride to the Cocoa Beach Pier. I wish I would have snapped some on Sunday but I'm sure there will be another opportunity in storm season. Surfer Dudes size up the surf. They had to be prepared for rip currents. These pilings have to be maintained on a regular basis due to the pounding they take from the surf and storms. Mother Nature can unleash her fury at any time and we all need to be prepared. Life is just better in Florida! Have some Fun in the Sun!

The patrons of Jump's Tiny Tavern in Cocoa Beach raise a toast to the Heroes and Victims of 911. Many veterans come to this friendly local watering hole to watch some football, listen to great live entertainment and play horseshoes. It's a favorite place for me to stop on my afternoon bike ride and throw some shoes. It may be tiny but it has a big heart! The Horseshoe Kings: Bill, John (me), Angel, Steve, Walker and JT. Popular acoustic artist Rich Deems and Friend entertaining the crowd. I'll be playing here Oct 14th and Nov 4th so come on down for a good time!

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Surfing Festival and Bikini Contest is held every year at the Cocoa Beach Pier. The waves weren't 8 footers like the ones generated from Hurricane Earl a few days ago but still provided good rides for the contestants. Bikini contest entrants posed for the cameras and threw t-shirts to the crowd. They have a contest on both Saturday and Sunday and then on Monday decide the winners. Everyone has a lot of fun, especially the girls. I bumped into old friend Kenny (black shirt) and it was good to see him again after quite a few years. Ken is stationed at Patrick AFB and is a search and rescue specialist. Hanging out at the Cocoa Beach Pier. Another great day at the beach! Life is just better in Florida! Have some Fun in the Sun!

  Video of Amazing Underwater Mural in Foreclosure Townhouse Cape Canaveral, FL 32920 I love what I do for a living, but every so often I run across something in a home that makes me enjoy it just at little bit more than I usually do.  A few days ago, I was showing one of my clients some foreclosure properties in the Cape Canaveral / Cocoa Beach area.  Unknowingly, I saved the best one for last!  When we walked up to the front porch, we noticed a small painted picture of two dolphins facing or kissing each other to the right of the door.     As we entered the unit, it appeared to be similar to everything else we had already seen that day.  When one of my clients turned the corner and loudly said, "Wow! Look at that!", I had no idea what I was about to see.  The scene is about 15 feet at...

The "Thunder on Cocoa Beach" Super Boat races were held today, 8/22/10 and as promised, there was a lot of noise and speed. They started racing at 11:00 am but for some reason, they cut the 1:00 pm main event  from the scheduled 1 1/2 hours to half an hour.  By the time I got my chair and umbrella set up, I only had time for some long distance shots and the race was over. I was going to stabilize my camera and go for some telephotos but it was too late. Click Here to see my previous post that shows what the boats look like close up. All sizes of spectator boats were anchored just outside the buoy line to watch. The boats raced only 150 yards from the beach and surfers swam out pretty close to get a good view. People packed the beach to watch the free show. Life is just better in Florida...

Thunder on Cocoa Beach Super Boats were on display in Port Canaveral on Friday in preparation for the big race on Sunday. The event is expected to pump a lot of money into Brevard County businesses. Event Schedule. The boats will do practice runs on Saturday and fans are already lining the beach to get a good view. Thunder Girls at Fishlips Restaurant. Fountain Talladega V 10 It's hard to focus your eyes in one of these things because there is so much vibration and motion. You have to be strapped in with a harness just like a race car driver.

We all had a good time at the Jump's Tiny Tavern Horseshoe Tournament in Cocoa beach on Saturday but the heat kept a lot of regulars from showing up. The one thing I've noticed that stands out is that no one has anything negative to say. Your opponent is cheering you on to get that big ringer (even though they hope you don't :-). Everyone is competitive but no one has an attitude and I think that's a good way to be if you're a Realtor as well. Nice guys DO finish first in my book! Steve and Scotty scoring and picking up shoes. Walker zeroing in on the peg with Gino watching. Gino used to coach Junior A Hockey in Cleveland and I'm a big Hockey fan. I could probably write a book about everyone that comes to Jump's and maybe someday I will :-) Steve shooting another ringer. Just the guys h...
