I went to volunteer for a Vacation Bible School in our church and it was very interesting. I met 3 ladies who is the director of the event and the other two were parents. It seemed that they knew each other so well and being new I was just observing. It was so nice to be in a classroom again. Anyway, as we head back home, I requested that we drive down the Indian River Drive.
If you happen to visit Cocoa area, these are the usual views that you will enjoy watching from the window of your car. We took the route along Indian River Drive and it was a 3.5 mile long so; I truly enjoyed the ride.
I asked my husband if he won a lotto, would he consider buying a property here and his answer is a big NO. LOL. We live about 5 minutes away from Indian River FYI. Anyway, you probably asked why? I have answer to that. The view here is fantastic and you will always get lucky to find dolphins swimming close by or if you have a private dock, you will see them jumping once in a while.
But, there are certain months that the smell of the river is truly stinky. The bridges have tended to impede the flow of red drift algae, resulting in an odor of hydrogen sulfide in the area. You will never imagine how foul the odor is once you drive down here. The view? Perfect! There are huge and beautiful houses in the area with manicured lawn but, maybe, they get used to the odor.
