I made a short trip from my home in the Orlando area to Cocoa Beach, Florida last week. As the expressway turned South approaching the coast, it was like crossing a line. Suddenly, it looked like I was in South Florida.
During the time I was over there, I traveled from Cocoa Beach all the way down to Indian River County. I crossed the Sebastian Inlet bridge and explored Orchid Island.
The entire trip along route A-1-A on the barrier island, it looked like the area was solidly Zone 10B based upon what grows there. Coconut palms are everywhere from Cape Canaveral south. Back from the exposure to the salt spray, there are Royal Palms. The 520 causeway connecting Cocoa Beach and Merritt Island has been landscaped with Royal Palms. Also, Adonidia's are everywhere as you can see from the attached pictures.
Except where the fruit has been removed to protect people and cars below, there were lots of coconuts in the trees.
Just an amazing area.
