Outdoor Resorts of America (ORA), Melbourne Beach, Florida
Part 2

One of the first things I learned about Terry on this trip is that she hates to have her picture taken. I am afraid that she is hooked up with the wrong guy! I take lots of pictures, including candid pictures.

We attended two concerts in early May.
The first was an 8 year old pianist with “High Functioning Autism,” Jacob Velazquez. It was his first full length concert. He played 15 music pieces from Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart, Yanni, Taylor Swift, Bach, and others. He started with the Star Spangled Banner. Everything was from memory, no sheet music. He was one heck of a performer.

The second concert was “The Three Sopranos” with the Melbourne Community Orchestra.

Ready for another bike ride.
In the palm tree just above Terry is a Mourning Dove sitting on eggs in a nest. We watched from the motorhome while they built the nest.
The male lands on my cars roof-rack with twigs before taking them to the nest. I think his wife has to approve the twig before proceeding.


The nest is hidden from view. Morning Doves build a nest in this palm every spring that I have been here.

When I stand on the 'runnng board' of the car I can get a good picture.

She is used to us coming and going.

Returning from a trip around the resort.

She knows how to use the brakes.

Whew, that was a long ride!!!

Terry, Carol, Emma, and Jimmy, waiting for The Jacob Velazquez concert to start.

Jacob introducing himself and his program to us. His parents and his music teacher was in the front row.
His music teacher is on the left of the picture using her cell phone to take a picture.


He was a real cool showman. He even joked around with the audience.

During the whole performance he only made one mistake. He apologized and started the piece over.

After the intermission he came out dressed casual and joked even more.

We went out for dinner after the concert.

The Three Sopranos with the Melbourne Community Orchestra.

They sang 20 songs from various writers, including Rodgers & Hammerstein, Puccini, Strauss, Bizet, Mozart and others.
