20 Dolphins Playing

This morning on a bicycle ride over the Veterans Memorial Bridge in Martin County, Florida, I stopped to watch numerous dolphins playing in the St. Lucie River. There were a few fortunate people out this morning just after 7:00 am and we were all in awe of these magnificent creatures. The general consensus was that there were about twenty of them.

Wetlands Trail at Justin Wilson Memorial Park

Justin Wilson Memorial Park has a wetlands trail that many people are not aware of.  The trailhead sign is tucked away behind Pavilion E near the tennis courts.  Be sure to bring your binoculars. I saw two osprey families in their nests at the park.

The bridges provide great exercise, an extra bonus.  Continue reading “Stuart-Palm City 5-Mile Bike Loop”

Rustic Hills, Palm City, FL

Fui a dar un paseo en bicicleta en un día nublado en marzo a través de la comunidad de Rustic Hills en Palm City, Florida. El límite de velocidad para los automóviles es de 10 mph con topes de velocidad en todas partes. El puente cubierto es encantador. Se pueden ver barcos por todas partes. Este es otro de esos lugares que me recuerdan a la vieja Florida y disfruto de la mezcolanza de casas. No hay dos iguales.  Continue reading “Rustic Hills”
