Food Truck Invasion in Tradition Square, Port Saint Lucie will switch to 1st and 3rd Fridays starting in September 2014. Bring a few lawn chairs and your dog if you like. Event runs from 5 – 9 p.m. and trucks take credit/debit cards. Watch the sunset over the church steeple or the lake, visit with neighbors and friends from town, enjoy a large buffet of dinner choices. It’s a local favorite, and a great way to start your weekend.
We decided to step out a few times a week and go on some day hikes instead of just around the block on our daily walks.
This past sunny Saturday morning, Penny and I took a look around the trails at the Savannas Preserve State Park on Walton Road in Port Saint Lucie.
You can pick up a map at the entrance and get an overview of the trails at the park. It’s also a good idea to familiarize yourself with the markings for the trails you choose to follow.
Savannas are an endangered natural system of freshwater marshes. This preserve is the largest and most intact remnant of Florida east coast savannas. The park stretches 10 miles from Fort Pierce to Jensen and hosts 8 miles of trails and is open from 8 a.m. to sundown.
Guided walks as well as canoe and kayak tours are available on weekends with reservations required. The park also hosts an environmental center, but I didn’t think I could bring Penny inside for a tour. ; )
You can find more detailed information about navigating the Savannas Preserve online at Florida Hikes. Happy hiking!
We recently rescued our beautiful little beagle, Penny, from the Treasure Coast Humane Society. Daily walks and wags now brighten our day. Life with beagle is a new adventure and we are excited to begin a brand new chapter with this wonderful furry addition to our family.
I love pouring over beautiful images on glossy screens, don’t get me wrong, but rolling out colorful fondant, calmly pinching up sanding sugar and dusting it keenly atop my own confectionary creation was a much needed escape from my keyboards. I traveled away from my ordinary day just down the road to this magical place, the county fair, and I met wonder there.
I am a Florida leisure cyclist. I love my blue Sun Beach Cruiser and long lazy rides through Tradition, Fl. When I reach this lake on my regular route, I can feel my soul settle down and unwind a bit.
Out here I ride with the cranes.
I ride with the cows.I ride with a helmet and a smile.
Where do you ride?
