A dear friend of mine was visiting recently from Denver, and we decided to spend the afternoon listening to live music down in Melbourne Beach. On the drive back up, I noticed something in the road. I positioned my SUV to straddle the object, driving over it. As I drove by, I immediately recognized the object as a turtle. I immediately slammed on by brakes and backed up. I got out of my vehicle and waved the oncoming traffic around the turtle. It was a Gopher Tortoise which is the state tortoise of Florida...they are also an endangered species. It was an adult tortoise, I believe a male, with a carapace of over 10 inches in length. My heart broke when I saw that he had been run over by a car. His carapace was cracked and a 3-4 inch piece of his shell was missing from the top, but he was...

Just finishing up my latest art sculpture of a shark. Next I'll be applying primer and then painting the sculpture with acrylic paint. Once everthing is good and dry i'll  seal the sculpture with a gloss polycrylic sealer to to give it a wet look. Lastly I'll back and install a nice black frame on this one of a kind hand painted sculpture of ocean art from Melbourne Beach, Florida. Let me know what you think. I'll be posting more progress photos as I go. Thanks for looking and your feedback. Paul

  I am never surprised when I head out to a house to show it to my clients, especially when we are looking at investment properties. Foreclosures often turn up things that become interesting topics of discussion and this one was no exception. Would this living room be considered decorating on a shoestring budget?  I bet they had a lot of fun doing it. This picture was taken in the living room of a bank owned foreclosure offered for sale in Melbourne Beach, FL.

In Florida we have WDO inspections along with regular home inspections. The Question: Jeff, You suggested we do a home inspection as well as a WDO inspection. Can you remind me what the WDO inspection is. Thanks, John and Mary My Answer: Hi John and Mary, In Florida we strongly recommend all our buyers get a WDO (Wood Destroying Organism) inspection. It will inspect for termites and other bugs that eat wood...as well as organism that might hurt wood structures in the home. Based on our high level of humidity and warm temperatures (that do not kill off the bugs in Winter) this inspection is a must.   Jeffrey

 I was showing a beautiful Oceanfront house in Melbourne Beach, FL. I peeked out the window in the Master Bedroom and felt the need to take a quick shot of this Rainbow. The Sun was just beginning to come out from behind the clouds and it made for a great shot. My clients stood and watched for about 10 minutes...oceanfront living can have it's challenges...but it can also give you an amazing peek into nature right from your own bedroom window :) It just made my day!

  How Many Lagoons Make Up The Indian River Lagoon?   Did you know that the Indian River lagoon on The Atlantic coast of Florida is really a group of three lagoons? Yes that’s true. Together the Mosquito Lagoon, Banana River and Indian River make up the Indian River Lagoon. The Indian River Lagoon or estuary is separated from the Atlantic coast by the barrier islands. The Indian River Lagoon is 156 miles long, it extends from Ponce De Leon Inlet in Volusia County, to the southern border of Martin county. The Indian River Lagoon is connected to the ocean by a few ocean inlets and this allows the saltwater to mix with the fresh water which comes from runoff from the surrounding land as well as from the rainfall. Any changes in the amount of freshwater, or pollutants or sudden changes in t...

Why Living in Harbor East of Melbourne Beach is So…ooo Special! Melbourne Beach is an Oceanside town of about 3300 residents. Ocean Ave is about less than a mile and ends into the Indian river at one end and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Melbourne Beach Pier is a great place for fishing and just relaxing. Nearby is the Ryckman Park perfect for a family picnic or a game of tennis on the adjacent tennis courts. In the summer months Melbourne Beach hosts movie nights in the park for its residents. Town Hall, Police and Fire Departments as well as the post office are also on Ocean Ave. A short walk down the road towards the Ocean, and you are near the library and a community supermarket and bank. Melbourne Beach Library hosts many events for children and adults. The Ocean Park by the bea...

Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is poisonous, let it go. Fear is paralyzing, face it. Memories are priceless, cherish them! This sunset picture was taken in South Melbourne Beach overlooking the Indian River Lagoon.
