They walk among us, Celebrity I mean,

leave 'em alone and they'll leave us alone.

Blowing Rocks Preserve

 

1 - You're always pointing out to your guests where Burt Reynolds lives.

2 - You sing Alan Jackson songs and you're not even a Country Music fan.

3 - At night you look to the sky and say "That's Greg Norman's helicopter."

4 - You know that "Trapper" Nelson was a real life Tarzan who lived in our midst.

5 - Jonathan Dickinson State Park will always be Camp Murphy to you.

6 - Gomez Grant has nothing at all to do with that other Ulysses S. fellow.

7 - When people talk to you about the Reformation it's a shipwreck from 1696, and has nothing to do with Religion. 

8 - You have to explain to visitors that Harry & the Natives is a restaurant and not a pop rock group of the sixties.

9 - You know the difference between a crocodile, an alligator and a caiman.

!0 - Your favorite canoe trip is up Kitching Creek at low tide in Spring with a boatload of Northern meat (aka Snowbirds)

11- Blowing Rocks is not some new drug craze but can blow your mind when conditions are right. Be careful!

12 - You're thankful that I-95 was a forgotten Road that almost left us alone.

13 - Don't even think about putting anything here, I'm superstitious!

 

THAT'S ALL FOLKS!

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert, you'll know why we call it the Treasure Coast when you get the chance to visit.

Roger D. Mucci, we were able to keep the small town appeal because the Interstate system had a glitch while it was under construction and the masses avoided us for a time during the "Boom " years.

We had a friend who lived in Hobe Sound. We spent the night there once. He was a painter of beautiful ocean views with Palm Trees leaning out over the water. Beautiful work!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel , you can have beautiful people and places or the natural beauty of Florida and Hobe Sound encompasses that.

Evelyn Johnston, there aren't too many places left where one can go to walk miles of undeveloped Atlantic neach in Florida. Hobe Sound is one of them.

Thank you Gabe SandersMatt Brady & Hannah Williams.  When I read it back to myself I begin to think I've been in the area too long. That ain't right!

This sure sounds like a sane part of Florida.

I've even strayed off I-95 to partake on some prior trips.

We're pretty spoiled here Joan, relative to the rest of the State. But that's only if you like it un-spoiled. It's nothing like other more traveled areas of Florida.

And every person in Hobe Sound knows the difference between alligator and crocodile? I'd like to know to!

(hint hint: can be a blog post ;)

Those two are the easiest to figure out Inna. The head and jaws are the giveaway then the teeth. Alligator's upper jaws cover the teeth, crocodiles have a telltale 4th tooth in their lower jaw which is visible when the mouth is closed. A caiman has many pointy teeth in the lower jaw which are visible. Whereas crocodiles and alligators are stealthy hunters a caiman's aggression is somewhat unnerving when approached, you learn quickly.

I started my Florida life down that way Marco and continually move North. When I get to Melbourne Beach or Cocoa that'll probably be the end of me, with any luck, it'll be on a boat or golfing.
