The 70% Coincidence

The human body is about 70% water. 70% of the earth's surface is covered by water and, remarkably, Cocoa Beach, according to Wikipedia, is about 70% water with over 10 square miles of water. For a waterman like myself, this makes for a very big playground. The aerial shot below demonstrates the land/water makeup of this special little town by the sea. As I write this on April 2nd, the temp is 72 degrees with a light east wind and sparse cotton ball clouds with a decent head-high ground swell that has been hanging around for going on two weeks now. The locals are very content these days.

One last piece of useless 70% info; Exactly 70% of the 82 condos sold so far in 2008 in Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral sold for less than $256,000. There has been a lot of activity in the last couple of weeks. I'll report on notable closed sales and deals in my next post. Welcome to the new readers in Sweden, South Korea, Japan, Java, Belize, U.A.E., Panama and Columbia. I'd love to hear from you and why you're reading this blog about Cocoa Beach.
