Brevard is a super nice place to live. I've been here since 1979 when my dad got assigned to Patrick AFB. Glad I bought property and had the opportunity when it was affordable!

Had dinner at Mannie's over off Wickham Friday evening. Great place, but completely filled with NY/NJ Guidos. Complete with unbuttoned shirts and gold chains. Fuggedaboudit.

Seems like less traffic locally yesterday though, make the heat is sending some back north.

Cole I heard sea turtles were on the menu way back. What she ever say on that?

Yep, turtles! Not to my liking but, when you're hungry and having a turtle cook out on the beach, , , , , ,!!

Little known turtle fact, , , , , Archie Carr initially got into turtles not to save them but, to figure out how to manage a sustainable harvest.

We used to cook our manatee on what is now Tortoise Island.

Nothing about turtles, but she did say the water was gin clear and you could catch sea trout with a strip of white cloth on a hook.

You could see the bottom of the channel from the old Eau Gallie swing-bridge (1956).

The "smart", old boy, bridge shrimpers would make nets out of chicken wire; you had to have a way for the "little" ones to get out or you could not lift the net up.

It really is a tragedy what has happened to the river.

Maybe it's too far gone?

I don't see much progress.

It's been clear without any rain, but that's about to end.

Some say it septic tanks, but I do find it strange that they don't seem to have any effect till the rains come.

Yeah, has nothing to do with the fertilizer run-off...
