Gator Hook Lodge

by Charles Knight
(Melbourne, Florida, USA)

I'm Charles Knight, son of Jack Knight Sr.

Gator Hook was built by my brother Jack Jr. Dad eventually owned it but only after my sister Joyce tired of it. I lived in the room above the bar. Dad lived next door in a Mobile home.

Life on the Loop was interesting to say the least. You can read my memoirs in my monthly column Flori-Duh in Brevard Live magazine.
