Melbourne, Florida

GAil with Totis Installed

Melbourne, Florida , USA

First stop on my Sunflower Tour of Discovery. I  arrived at the cute as a button home of my friend, Gail Gannon. Gail reports that the kids call Melbourne Mel-Boring. I did not find this to be true. Unlike many many Florida locations, Melbourne has a fun and funky historic downtown and a wonderful beach with surffin’ waves! We installed her sculpture, Totis 2  and planted her Sunflower Seed.

Barb and Car

Here is my rental car. I did not ask
for red but I LOLed when I saw it.
I need to be kinder the next time
I see an old man in a Corvette.

I think I get it a little bit.

Gail's hairdoSome grow old with grace and a lovely aristocratic hair-do – some with a red convertible.

Both have great merit.

I can see the Atlantic. All is good when I see the Big Pond. melbourne beach surf video

This is like writing for that English assignment “What I did  on my summer vacation”. Hope this won’t be a snoozer.
