There are five different species of turtles that visit Florida’s beaches: loggerhead, green turtle, leatherback, hawksbill, and Kemp’s ridley.   Here on the Stuart, Jupiter/Juno and Singer Island area beaches we are fortunate to observe loggerhead, green turtle and leatherback turtle nesting sites.  A sea turtle’s life is challenging from the start.   It takes decades to reach maturity.  After mating at sea, the female returns to land.  She will make one to eight nests per season.  The nesting female will haul herself up onto the beach, generally at night, find suitable sand, and using her hind flippers dig a circular hole 16 to 20 inches deep.  She will lay soft-shelled eggs one by one until she has deposited all of her eggs (between 50 – 200 eggs…

It is supposed to be the time we break out the sweaters and the apple cider! Fall is here, changing of the leaves, football season, and holidays are just around the corner.  It is evident by the crisp change in the air, and the vibrant colors around.  Fall is a very comforting season.

Living in this Jupiter/Tequesta paradise, one must trade splendor of the fall foliage for the beauty of the tropics.
 
Seasonal decorating is one way to embrace autumn.
 
Potted plants of yellow or orange mums on the front/ back porches and pool areas will add to the seasonal flavor.
 
Aromatherapy is another method that influences your senses.  Purchase candles or warming oils in comforting scents like pumpkin or apple spice to fill the

Only 80 days until the Palm Beach Food and Wine Fest 2013. Local “foodies” are preparing their taste buds for the culinary delights.  If you happen to be a beer geek here is some “hoppy” news for you – Tequesta Brewing Co. (TBC) 287 U.S. Highway One, Tequesta, FL (561)745-5000, is celebrating Hop Week starting today! Once a year hops are harvested in the North West and sold throughout the year for beer manufacturing.

This means a week’s worth of freshly infused hops in TBC beer.  The difference is that these featured brews are not made with the usual processed hops, but with freshly harvested hops. When the hops are not dried, they maintain the volatile, perfumy and grassy aromas not found after they have been processed.  The brewery ordered more than 100…

The 10-bedroom Miami mansion, known as “Casa Casuarina”, was originally listed in June 2012 and then later reduced to $75 million.  Many expected the house to become the most expensive ever sold in Miami.   Bidding on the property has required very deep pockets.  It has required an opening offer of $25 million dollars.  A total of $3 million must be put in escrow and prospective buyers must show proof of a minimum of $40 million in funds.  

After more than a year on the real estate market, the estate once owned by legendary fashion designer Gianni Versace has sold.   Considered by most, at $41.5 million, the sale is a bit disappointing – 67% off the original asking in June 2012.  The estate was on FORBES’ magazine of "America’s Most Expensive Homes For

“Jazz on The Palm” is a fabulous waterfront concert series under the stars produced by the City of West Palm Beach. It is a highly popular series of local, up and coming jazz artists.  Join fellow jazz enthusiasts every third Friday (next performance - September 20, 2013) for the free concert.  Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs.
