This place is for the birds
One of the cool things about living near the water is the variety of waterfowl that you can spy lining the local canals, ponds and other waterways.
If you’ve never seen one in person, running into a 4-foot-tall great blue heron, or even a 3-foot-tall egret is pretty amazing. Combine that with a…
See ya later, alligator
Florida has two seasons: Heaven and Hades. Don’t get me wrong, I love the summers here. Diving is one of my favorite hobbies, and winter isn’t exactly highlighted by calm seas or clear water.
But if you want to go for a hike, there’s nothing like a 75 degree day in early…
To infinity and beyond
One of the coolest things about living Florida for the past 12 years has been the occasional front row seat when rockets (and previously space shuttles) have launched from Kennedy Space Center. Well, front row might be a bit of an exaggeration, but the view from Vero nearly 80 miles south…

Sometimes the dry spells (pun intended) last long enough that I forget how much I enjoy it. Lucky for me, it seems that Lake Atlantic is…
Fort Pierce Prayer Walk
Another shooting prompted another prayer walk and candlelight vigil in Fort Pierce. Here’s some images from the walk held Friday, May 15.
Hitting The Streets
In the wake of multiple murders in Fort Pierce, one which left a 2-year-old dead, members of the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office are spending more time in the rougher areas of town trying to curb violence.
When I moved to Vero in January of 2006, I had never so much as seen a lacrosse stick, much less photographed it. Ten FHSAA LAX state championships later, Vero Beach High School has won every. single. year. Coincidence? Yeah, probably.
Ups and downs
Thursday started off happy enough. Visited the humane society to photograph a couple horses that were surrendered by their owner one year ago. They were completely emaciated when they arrived at the shelter. They are now available for adoption.
The mood that evening was much more somber. A candlelight vigil…
