Would you like to see how “The Wild Man of the Loxahatchee” lived? Called “Trapper Nelson” (his actual name was Victor Nostokovich), he was a big man with even bigger strength and a legendary ability to track and capture animals of all kinds. He bought 800 acres and lived completely off the land.

Trapper Nelson’s cabin — and the area where he displayed alligators, opossums, wildcats and such to tourists — is a must-see. Ranger-guided tours of the 1930s pioneer homestead are available year-round.

The park is named for a Quaker merchant whose party was shipwrecked nearby in 1696. Rare environments such as coastal sand hills, upland lakes, and scrub forests as well as the pristine Loxahatchee River make Jonathan Dickinson State Park a unique spot to

Sunset Beach Yoga will happen this Sunday on Delray Beach from 4:00pm – 5:30pm. The session will be guided (but also open to self-practice) and will last about 80 minutes. Several techniques will be practiced including Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin Asana and Pranayama practice, and the session will finish in a Savasana (meditation- laying down.)

Start times may vary slightly depending on season and sunset time.

Yoga is great for nurturing flow through the body that implements vinyasa elements and focuses on muscular & skeletal strength and balance, liberating physical tension and energetic stagnation, meditation, and conscious breathing.

New Year’s Eve has been a time of celebration, a day for ushering in the new year, for nearly four-thousand years.

Today, most New Year’s festivities begin on December 31 (New Year’s Eve), the last day of the Gregorian calendar, and continue into the early hours of January 1 (New Year’s Day). In South Florida, as around the world, festivities include partying, handing out with friends, drinking champagne, making resolutions, and counting down as the ball drops in Time Square.

The earliest recorded festivities in honor of a new year’s arrival date back some 4,000 years to ancient Babylon. For the Babylonians, the first new moon following the vernal equinox—the day in late March with an equal amount of sunlight and darkness—heralded the start of a new
