Warm weather continues in Jupiter

Jupiter Florida the premier waterfront location in the West Palm Beach, or for that matter all of South Florida, is an incredible place to live. We have "A" rated schools, miles of wide beaches with warm sand and clear Atlantic waters teeming with game fish like snook and wahoo, homes and condos at every price point and of course, the weather.

Winter is our dry season here so the threat of rain is slim except when cold fronts push through bringing showers ahead of them. Golf is happening everywhere on courses like Admirals Cove, BallenIsles, Mirasol and the 5 courses at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens. The Champion course at PGA National is home to the Honda Classic later this month and many PGA Tour players, like Rickie Fowler and Camilo Villegas just have to drive down from their homes in Tequesta. Jupiter homes attract many celebrities and those that can afford to live anywhere in the world choose Jupiter and Tequesta. Here's a screen shot from TV showing what we are expecting this week. Is this a little warmer than what you are experiencing right now?

Elin Nordegren walks the beach today

Life here along the Jupiter to Palm Beach Gardens corridor is full of celebrities and it is not uncommon to run into them. Once at the South Florida Fair, I found Andres Galarraga, The Big Cat, standing in the shadows holding a stuffed bear he won on the midway (maybe throwing baseballs?). And, I used to run into the Nicklaus boys, Jackie and Gary, quite frequently around Palm Beach Gardens.

Around the Jupiter Inlet, Alan Jackson showed up at the Square Grouper and filmed a video there with Jimmy Buffett who lives on the island of Palm Beach. Greg Norman used to travel through the Inlet aboard his sport fishing boat, "Aussie Rules". And Alan Jackson keeps his fishing boat, "Hullbilly" close to the Inlet for fast getaways.

While visiting on Jupiter Island one day, I was surprised to see Lee Trevino working on his golf clubs in the garage next door while his caddie, Herman, sat on a cart and I listened as they talked about the behind the scenes happenings on the PGA Tour. Joe Namath must like Burger King since I have bumped into him there a few times.

Other golf notables in the area include Nick Price, Briny Baird, Steve Marino and Rickie Fowler.

So when Tiger Woods scooped up $ 38 million dollars worth of Jupiter Island real estate to begin building his compound he joined the crowd who discovered our paradise before him. After his marriage crumbled, Elin Nordegren (ex-Mrs. Tiger Woods) began to hunt for a home and settled on a $ 12.3 oceanfront mansion in Seminole Landing. Ben Hogan once said that if he could only play one golf course for the rest of his life it would be Seminole. And Sean Connery has popped in for a round.

The house she purchased was reportedly not economically feasible to restore and since the value was really in the land, it was demolished after she donated $ 300,000 worth of furnishings to Habitat for Humanity in Martin County. All that's left is the real estate and the trees.

Today I found her walking the beach near the new home site with a couple of friends, her two kids and their two dogs. Yogi, the black and white dog seen in past Woods family pictures, came over to visit for awhile after he found something cool in the seaweed. I took this shot of the group returning up to the construction location.

So, even in an area filled with celebrities it is always a kick to run into another one. I hope Elin, Tiger, the kids, his mother along with Yogi and his buddy find this area as wonderful as we do.

Dubois Park gets a facelift

Dubois Park was recently voted the most popular park in Palm Beach County. When land became available at the west end of the Park recently, the County added dockage so residents can come to the park via water. There are more videos on my You Tube channel.

Dubois Park: The new docks are almost ready

Dubois Park is a favorite Jupiter attraction.  The Park sits right on the Jupiter Inlet across from Jupiter Inlet Colony and Jupiter Island.  Here, clear ocean water floods in twice a day providing a great place for swimming or spending a lazy day under the palms.  The peace is broken only when a boat returns through the Jupiter Inlet.

Last year the County began a restoration project that included building these docks so people could access the Park by boat.  The protected lagoon is a favorit hangout for manatees, sea turtles and migrating mullet during the fall and is a great place to snook fish at dusk when the action is the hottest.

The final touches are now being installed as they near completion and this is always evidenced by the County sending two people to do the job of one.  These small, punch-list jobs could be handled by just one employee like I saw yesterday, but like any good government project, there is always an extra employee hanging around to talk or tell jokes while the other one works.  And I think the project landscape architect was there since she was carrying plans and a man was explaining everything detail to her.

If you are looking for a great spot to take the family, Dubois Park is the spot.  My You Tube video below on the Park has received nearly 5,000 visits.
