Today we headed to Spessard Holland Beach in Melbourne Beach to enjoy a couple hours in the sun. My husband wanted to go fishing,  We left the surfboards at home.  We actually should have left the fishing poles at home and brought the boards instead, but we didn't. The surfing was great today. It was a perfect day. Not too hot, The wind was cool. This guy was funny, because everytime we turned around he was trying to steal our bait out of our bait bucket.   He kept walking up and down the beach trying to steal people's newly caught fish.  He seemed to be eating pretty well today. Unfortunately, we didn't catch any fish today. But, we did catch a great tan.  It was a bit too rough for fishing.   This article is authored by Sandy Shores Realtor, Melbourne FL Real Estate Brevard County Rea...

Some days when we go fishing on Melbourne Beach Florida we catch nothing.  We sit without even the slightest nibble on the line.  Our bait always seems to disappear, though.   Other days are great! We try to get to the beach early, so that the tide is still low and the fish are biting.   On this day we were fortunate and caught 13 whiting.  Bailey would have loved to help eat them! They were absolutely delicious! This article is authored by Sandy Shores, Melbourne FL REALTOR. South Brevard County, Florida Space Coast.

A couple of days ago I was working outside of the office, showing homes to out of town buyers. It was their first time to the area.  We had about 7 houses on the list to look at that day.  I really wanted to be sure to show them around so they could get an overall feeling of the beautiful area in Melbourne Beach Florida that we live in. Before I left my office I programmed my GPS for the 7 houses that we were planning to view that day.  They were all within about 5-7 miles of each other.  Now, anyone showing houses knows that a hundred things can happen between you and those 7 houses you want to look at...we don't and can't always show them in the order we anticipated at the beginning of the day.  There are so many other things that can grab the buyer's attention first. My GPS has a swe...

We are seeing some beautiful Fall weather here in Brevard County Florida. The gentle breezes are blowing and their is little humidity in the area. But the wind is wreaking havoc with the Atlantic Ocean.  Surfers love it!  The waves have been larger than normal.  It is not the time to be swimming, still, there are those die hard beach enthusiasts that can't get enough of our beautfiul coastline here in Melbourne Beach Florida. This is the time to be reminded of how dangerous the rip currents can be out in the ocean.  A rip current can pull you under, and most people typically panic when they get caught in one. Panicing can drown you!  It is important to remember, should you get caught in a rip current, don't fight the current, allow it to pull you along.  Swim parallel to the shoreline. ...

I'm always looking for the least expensive gasoline that I can find. Prices here in Melbourne Florida have remained consistently above the $3.50 for sometime now. And many have been very close to $4.00 a gallon.  Over the past several weeks I have seen a gradual decline in prices.  I know that oil prices have been dropping. I also know that we have a presidential election in less than 20 days. This is the cheapest gasoline I have seen anywhere in our area. I saw this yesterday in South Melbourne Beach, Brevard County Florida. Interesting that it is currently cheaper on the beachside than the mainland, as often it is more costly. Gosh, isn't it funny how our perceptions change in time? I never thought I would be happy to see gasoline for nearly $3.00 a gallon!  We used to say it was too ...

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been working with buyers in South Melbourne Beach Florida.  I always recommend that out of town buyers bring their camera while out seeing an area for the first time.  If they are unable, then I bring mine.  They can capture the sights.  When they go back home, they can enjoy the beautiful pictures they took of the area.  I take lots of pictures and I email them an album of pictures after they leave. Here are more of the beautiful sights we have seen in South Melbourne Beach Florida...   This is the boat dock in beautiful Aquarina in South Melbourne Beach.

The south beaches in Melbourne Beach in Brevard County Florida are absolutely gorgeous.  There are many ocean to river communities.  Some boast private beach access as well as private river access. In this community you can have the river just steps from your back yard and the beach just steps from your front door. I wanted to share some of the beautiful sights I saw yesterday while out showing houses with clients. Visit my website at www.SandyShoresMelbourne.com

Yesterday, I again spent the day with buyers from South Carolina, looking for a home in Melbourne Beach Florida.  It was a gorgeous day for the most part.  Later in the afternoon the sky got dark, and we got caught in a rain shower that lasted for about 30 minutes.  The sky continued to threaten that it would open up again and drop more rain on us, as we wrapped up our day. We saw so many beautiful sights in Melbourne Beach here in Brevard County Florida, my clients asked me about wildlife in the area.  Well, it seemed to be at our every turn. This little guy had us worrried, because he was walking down the side of the 2 lane highway A1A and we were afraid that he we going to be hit by a car.  So, we moved him a distance away from any traffic.  It seems that since Tropical Storm Fay, wh...

Yesterday I spent the day out showing houses with clients that came in from South Carolina.  We headed down Highway A1A here in Melbourne Beach in Brevard County Florida.  We dodged raindrops all day.  The sun would peek out from behind the clouds for a couple of minutes and then the rain would come rolling in.  I had heard that there was a depression in the tropics that was lingering over us. All in all we were fortunate to have stayed fairly dry. Towards the end of a productive day, we headed down to Sebastian Inlet State Park, just minutes from South Melbourne Beach.  I love visiting the park and spending a day with my family when we can get down there.  It wasn't too hot, and the sun was just going down.  It was mesmerizing. There are so many things to do at the park.  You can go to...

I love taking a stroll down the pier in Melbourne Beach Florida.  It is such a beautiful and relaxing place to just sit and watch the birds, the boats and people fishing. My grandparents used to come up from the Fort Lauderdale area of Florida, where they lived and rent a small old historic house right down the street from the pier.  I remember as a little girl, coming up to Melbourne Beach around the holidays to stay in this old historic home with wood floors and squeaky stairs.  It felt so warm and cozy. We would bundle up in our winter coats to go outside so we could run down to the end of the pier and just watch the sunsets.  I remember an older pier. To me at that time, the pier seemed to stretch for miles. Back then it seems that it was a quieter, simpler time. It was magical! Ma...
