Setting — Melbourne Harbor hides just inside Crane Creek, on the eastern edge where the wide basin narrows and flows into the ICW. A river walk leads from the Chart House restaurant on the point, past Ichabod's on the docks, to a series of small parks on both sides of Melbourne Ave. Manatee sculptures seem to rise from the ground in one of the parks, because the gentle mammals are frequent visitors to the harbor, winter and summer. You may even see a few nosing lazily around the creek.

Marina Notes — This marina is well-protected in almost any weather. There is a sense of seclusion here, despite the location in the heart of downtown Melbourne. The whole facility sparkles with care and cleanliness. Besides the two dockside restaurants, a short stroll into town leads to many more, from fine dining to sandwich shops and coffee houses. Walk off dessert by visiting the galleries, antique shops and specialty shops lining the arcades and streets. (H) Jeanne and Frances buckled some of the boardwalks but did not impact the marina's functions.

Notable — Melbourne hosts frequent street fairs and dances on weekend evenings, creating community gatherings for families and singles, depending on the celebration. There are juried art shows every spring and fall, and enough happening downtown that the easy access to Orlando attractions may seem unnecessary. Let Melbourne's friendly welcome encourage you to slow down and relax on one of the benches along the river. While there, watch the crew teams from Florida Institute of Technology practice across the harbor. With precision and timing, they allow a small rest in the middle of each stroke.
