I had the good fortune to spend the first few months of 2015 in Melbourne, Florida. It has been quite different from my normal travel to big cities, but it has been wonderful!  Melbourne is a city full of nature, beaches, and I have definitely gotten my fill of antiquing (highlighted in upcoming posts).

This is an interesting place…it started out as a park where people brought their birds so they could sing together & their owners could sit and chat or play cards.  While these bird owners still come to do this, unfortunately it has become a bit of a tourist trap.  I guess these places can’t be a well-kept secret forever.  But it is great to come here on a warm Sunday afternoon & listen to the birds; sounds beautiful!
