Birdwatching at Sea Pines

Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” (Genesis 1:20 NKJV)

Sea Pines Rehabilitation Hospital is located in Melbourne, Florida. As many of my readers know, I recently had extensive back surgery. Dr. James Billys, who did my surgery, practices in Melbourne. Four days after surgery [June 22nd],  I was released from Wuesthoff Hospital and was transferred to Sea Pines to begin my rehabilitation. What a fantastic place to start my recovery. Also, I am so thankful for all of you who have been praying for me as I am recovering.

This is not to tell about that, but to show you some of the great photos that covered the walls. Most of the photos were 3 feet x 4 feet, and were of birds and scenery around Brevard County, where Melbourne is located. Many of you will recall the articles that have been written about our birdwatching adventures over there. That is where Viera Wetlands, Brevard Zoo, Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge and other great places to watch God’s Creation are located.

A day or two before my two weeks of rehab finished, I felt well enough to go “Birdwatching at Sea Pines.” With cell phone in hand, sitting in the wheel chair, minus the foot rest, off I went. Propelling myself with either my feet or hands, I covered the whole place. The place was larger than I had imagined, and was tuckered by the time I returned to my room.

I trust you will enjoy the scenery and especially the bird pictures. Also, overlook that these were taken from wheel chair height and unfortunately not straight. Did the best I could to straighten them up. Enjoy!
