For his latest series 'Snowbirds,' Montreal-based photographer Mika Goodfriend traveled to Breezy Hill, a trailer park located near Florida's Pompano Beach.

Most notably, Breezy Hill is home to a community of retired couples, 98% of whom hail from Quebec. Needless to say, the trailer park is an interesting environment, one that combines a typical American aesthetic with French-Canadian savvy. Located two miles from the ocean, the trailer park almost functions as its own autonomous province, offering its residents a life of leisure and comfort.

The park maintains a special, close-knit ambiance that residents cherish; so much so, that they choose Breezy Hill over many ocean-front properties. Goodfriend expertly captures the unusual, memorable and welcoming community in the series. Stats for Retiree Trailer Park Editorials Trending: This Quarter & Buzzing
