Intercoastal Cruise

While my son and daughter-in-law were here visiting from California, along with my daughter and son-in-law from Jensen Beach, we took the Island Princess tour of the Indian River south to the Jupiter lighthouse. It’s a fun luncheon cruise with narration on the history of the waterway and islands by the vessel captain. In addition to opportunities to photograph the Jupiter lighthouse, and some wildlife, we alo saw the yachts and homes of the some of the rich and famous celebrities.

Stuart Pinspiration

The Treasure Coast’s first craft studio based on Pinterest opened recently in Stuart.
The studio is co-owned by my friends Lisa Brady and Sally Coyne. Brady’s daughter, Aina, will manage the location at 1562 S.E. Federal Hwy. Guests can choose a project on the studio’s website and then make a reservation to create it. At the studio, guests receive a kit and the supplies to design and personalize it. Craft ideas include string art, acrylic pouring, wooden pallet signs, custom candles, kids crafts and gifts. If you book a session at Pinspiration’s splatter room, you’ll receive protective gear — including booties, goggles, shower caps and robes or coveralls — and then you’re set free to splatter paint into a work of art on a fresh canvas. Budding artists 21 and older who like to imbibe while they create will be able to do that, too, because Pinspiration has a beer-and-wine bar. Non-alcoholic beverages are also available.
