    After your lovely hospital visit....Pharmacies!

    I hate pills ;(

    Favorite thing: Just in case you might be prescribed something to get rid of what may arise, we have so many pharmacies located in grocery stores and national chains, which have 24 hours pharmacies. Here is a well known 24 hour pharmacy:

    Walgreens
    1333 N.US1
    Melbourne, FL
    321-255-4998
    www.walgreens.com

    This is truly my best suggestion because it is open 24 hours. Ask the hospital which location should be best for you, closest to your hotel or where you will be staying. Other pharmacies, or stores with pharmacies are as follows:

    Publix Supermarkets
    www.publix.com

    CVS
    www.cvs.com

    Albertsons Supermarket
    www.albertsons.com

    See Pirate Treasure -- REALLY

    by gkitzmil Written Aug 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    gold coins

    Favorite thing: Visit both the McLarty Treasure Museum (owned by the state) and the Mel Fisher Museum.

    The McLarty is about 20 - 25 minutes south of Melbourne Beach (about 10 minutes North of Vero Beach) on A!A.

    http://www.atocha1622.com/mclarty.htm

    In 1715 a fleet of Spanish ships had collected a dowry for the queen of Spain. They were traveling north from Cuba to hit the westerly winds back to Spain. In very bad weather they wrecked off the coast of what is now Florida. It must have been terrible for the survivors as this was a swamp. Yet, they lost millions in gold and other treasures to the see. Even today it is possible that gold coins sometimes wash up on the beach. Much HAS been recovered in the past fifty years and some of that is on display at these two museums.

    National Historical Landmark
    Site Of The
    1715 Spanish Plate Fleet
    Survivors' & Salvaging Camp

    772-589-2147
    Fax 321-984-4854

    McLarty Treasure Museum is open 7 days a week
    10:00 AM-4:30 PM.
    (last video shows 3:15-4:00)
    Admission fee is $1.00 per person.
    Children under six admitted free.
