Historic Downtown Cocoa

I'm not sure how "historic" it actually is. There is not much in the way of old buildings, great architecture or anything like that but it is a couple of blocks of really great shops and restaurants. I've driven thru it a million times and not had the chance to stop so the other day, while the little kids were spending time with the big kids, Richard and I decided to take advantage of the time and take a stroll thru the village.
They did have some amazing murals painted on the walls of the buildings... DSC05096 DSC05094
The shops had some great stuff. I could have spent a fortune but I showed genuine restraint. I thought these were unusual and cute DSC05099 And I'd love to try doing something like these painted chairs sometime DSC05100 The one thing I did purchase was this flamingo pin, which I just couldn't resist DSC05166
To remind me of this friend I made while walking the streets DSC05101

Love the pin. I haven't checked out the old shopping district here either...funny how I have been all around but not 'in town' the murals...I'll snap some pics of ours after the weather rizes above 30 degrees! Great fun.
