Melbourne, Florida

We had breakfast at the Waffle House then our caravan headed toward Melbourne.


Mark leading in the Hummer, Sherry following in the Pickup with a load of Hummer tires and a door in her pickup.


Above is only one of the beautiful low country scenes in Georgia.  Lots of inlets to the sea with water front houses and boats attached.

Of course I always love the palm lined roads of Florida. (Very few photos today worth showing, I just held the camera high and clicked while driving.


Melbourne is just south of Cape Canaveral.  During the ‘Space Age’ of NASA’s successes, Melbourne was a booming city.  Now not so much.

A couple months ago son Mark came down with some money from the sell of land in NC, to start all over again.

He bought a small 2 BR house, did a lot of work on it, then listed it at a reasonable price. He had a buyer in 14 days.  The closing is next Friday.


He drove us around to show us the house he had wanted next, but didn’t work out. He did show us another one, and says it is next.

It is so good to see him enthused about houses. I am just crossing my fingers, anyone who has sold or bought houses, knows that no deal is done until the money changes hands.

Anyway, Sherry and I are together again and living in Wickham county RV Park in Melbourne. Our home for a week or so.

Now the time to relax and enjoy life  here in the Sunshine State…  When we lived in Key West Son jack always said it was the state of liquid sunshine..

I do not like driving with out my girl by my side, but it was for a good cause, and it is over and we are back together. We are not usually separated that long, that was most of a day!

Glad your trip was smooth and uneventful, I understand traveling without your Honey by your side, I do not like traveling without Anna Mae either driving or sitting beside me, Mark sounds like he has it all togeather, I wish him the best.

Take Care,

That looks like a nice house; I can see why it sold so quickly! Glad you guys got there safely in the caravan! Let's hope side by side will be the next part of your and Sherry's travels :)

I wish your son the best of luck and I hope he gets the second one too.


Glad your caravan all made it safely to your destination. Hope your son finds another house soon. The one he just sold looks very nice.

Glad you and Sherry are side by side again. Hope Mark has good luck with the second house too.

Now what can go wrong when your day starts at Waffle House? It's been ages, but enjoy those places where you're made to feel so welcome!

My son lived in Melbourne for his junior and senior years when he attended Florida Air Academy. Small world, huh?

Mark's house is really attractive. Suppose he'd like to invest in something out west ... perhaps in Arizona? LOL!

Glad you and Sherry and back together again!

PS - Jackie's term, 'liquid sunshine' makes me smile. Right on!

Glad you are there..the house
looks very nice. Happy for Mark
that he is doing something he likes.
Sherry could have stopped and sold
what she had in the back of the
truck..Hope you are having nice
weather calling for rain tomorrow
in Belmont.

Waffle house is a great place. I got to go to my very first one this past Spring when I visited with one of my sons and his family. Glad that trip is over for you and you can now relax and enjoy your liquid sunshine. We've been having plenty of sunshine here this past week so for right now I'm not envying your stay in the sunshine state. In our case though we know it isn't going to last.
