The boarded up antique shop, the last incarnation of this building from 1926, suffered some damage to its sign at some point. Most likely from the hurricane. Click here for a different view of this building.
With the constellation of Orion visible in the sky, the past weekend’s so-called “supermoon” illuminates the Indian River Lagoon and the slow moving clouds in this nighttime time exposure from the Fort Pierce waterfront looking southward.
This building constructed in 1926 has undergone many unknown uses to finally end up as an antiques mall, at least in its most recent incarnation. Besides its pleasing if somewhat spooky architecture, its location atop a high and somewhat lonely point on the Florida Ridge north of Fort Pierce provides a commanding view of the area, especially eastward toward the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean. Most likely the building’s best days are behind it given its current boarded […]

Back when I was a volunteer at Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge (PINWR) I was fortunate to be invited to watch the expansion of Pelican Island via use of a helicopter flying bucket loads of dirt out to the island. Pelican Island has always been small, roughly 5.5 acres when it first became a bird sanctuary back in 1903. And after years of erosion, most likely caused by a hundred years of boat wakes gnawing at the shoreline, the island […]
