Enjoyed my trip to #jupiterflorida #jupiterinlet and read the plaque of two cannons and an anchor found back in 1987. Typos are typos and its understandable if there are words or places that one might not know how to spell. Indeed #colombia for Americans causes grief because of Columbus, Columbia, DC even British Columbia but this is a monument and frankly it really should be spelled correctly. So should #bogota its not Bogata, Columbia. Well, we mean well in #beautifulfla #fl #florida #jupiter #palmbeachcounty but I would suggest #floridaman isn’t winning any spelling bees anytime soon! (at Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse)

If I were to ask many if #ww2 #ww2history was fought on the mainland US, many would say no. However the #battleoftheatlantic was perhaps one of the longest battles, essentially fought for the duration of the conflict. In this picture in #jupiterflorida is a building constructed by the #usnavy . Of course the #jupiterlighthouse is nearby and originally the naval station was located to staff the lighthouse as early as 1854. During #worldwartwo #navy personnel lived in these quarters on #jupiterinlet and this building was part of a triad of buildings making up a Direction Finding Station built on what was then called Station J. It was developed to locate German submarines torpedoeing vessels off the coast of #florida As the war in Europe ended this station was closed in July 1945. It is now part of #lighthousepark in #jupiter #fl #beautifulfla #palmbeachcounty #peace (at Lighthouse Park Playground)

There are good bike shops, bad bike shops and then there is Jack the Bike Man in #westpalmbeach #fl #florida #beautifulfla just picking up my recently repaired #raleighmountainbike which sat in some other bike shop for over a month. Also runs a children’s bicycle charity to ensure less fortunate children have bicycles to ride. (at Jack The Bike Man)

The only thing I don’t like about #FL – these guys. Is that an insect or a trilobite? People say they’re harmless but can anything called a toe-biter really be harmless? I am not so sure. I don’t even want to step on these things wearing sneakers. Fortunately this bugger has seen better days. #boyntonbeach
#florida …. not quite so #beautifulfla

Belostomatidae is a family of freshwater hemipteran insects known as giant water bugs or colloquially as toe-biters, Indian toe-biters, electric-light bugs, alligator ticks, or alligator fleas. They are the largest insects in the order Hemiptera (at Boynton Beach, Florida)

An homage to #sweettomatoes still standing for now. Hoping this closure is merely a hibernation until happier times. #boyntonbeach #fl #florida #beautifulfla (at Sweet Tomatoes)

If this #woodstork #stork shows up at your house with a delivery, you might be in for a little surprise. The wood stork isn’t threatened globally, but within the US it is threatened. Saw this stork perched this morning looking for something to eat in #beautifulfla #boyntonbeach #florida #fl (at Boynton Beach, Florida)

An iguana lazes on the pedestal of the bronze Barefoot Mailman Statue currently located in #hillsborobeach #browardcounty #florida #fl memorialized the 11 ‘barefoot mailmen’ who carried mail between #palmbeach and #miami before the two were connected by roads. The statue in Hillsboro Beach comemorates James “Ed” Hamilton who lost his life on the route suspected to have been eaten by alligators trying to cross Hillsboro Inlet. Passed by this statue at the town hall on a #beautifulfla day. (at Hillsboro Beach, Florida)

This #gophertortoise just giving me that suspicious look from his burrow. #tortoise can live a long time, this one can live until 40-60 years in the wild. Some of their burrows can be as much as 48’ long though this one is likely much shorter. Hope he enjoys a #beautifulfla day in #boyntonbeach #fl #florida (at Boynton Beach, Florida)

This yellow-bellied slider is buttoned up in the middle of the road! Hope he makes it back to the pond. Judging from the moss growing on the back maybe he is trying to dry out in the sun. Actually while this #turtle is native and very common in the southeast, it is not native to south #fl only being introduced to the region through pet releases. It is now extremely common throughout #florida #beautifulfla #turtle #yellowbelliedslider #wildlife (at Boynton Beach, Florida)

Gou Lou Cheong Chinese BBQ, what I would call a culturally authentic Chinese restaurant. I have yet to see a place like this outside of Chinatown in #nyc but here we are just off 441/SR7 in #lauderdalelakes in #beautifulfla in the middle of #browardcounty enjoying some of the finest #chinesefood I have ever had. I got the pork over rice and didn’t regret it. Dumplings extra-ordinaire! FYI cash only! #fl #florida (at Gou Lou Cheong BBQ Restaurant)
