Camping in Pine Island

Admin : March 6, 2013 7:10 pm
This week we took the clan to Pine Island. By South Florida standards it was bitter cold, to the rest of the world it was a great spring weekend. I was just glad the heater in the camper worked. The middle and the youngest both caught their first fish, dad spent that day baiting hooks Read More

Have you heard of Florida’s Treasure Coast? I had heard the term but never knew how it originated until a recent trip there. Honestly I should probably do several reviews of things we saw while there but since it’s a couple of hours North of where I have deemed South Florida for the purpose of Read More

Admin : February 4, 2013 3:16 am
I was writing my third review of the night earlier about how awesome the Miami Zoo is and it occurred to me that every review I have written up to this point has been positive. I was thinking to myself that surely there has been something we have done in South Florida that hasn’t been Read More

We came home from Christmas break in the great white north to find our community devastated. <insert dramatic music> Ok, now that the drama is out of the way it was interesting to come home and find our community ripping out the ficus plants that shielded the neighborhoods from the street and vise versa. The bad Read More

What are all the dead trees in the everglades?

Admin : October 27, 2012 5:14 pm
Ok, bare with me on the basics here. The everglades is the large swamp in the south of Florida, or is it?
