#TravelTuesday with Guest Photographer Bob Wick to Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area – A Quiet Oasis in Urban Southern Florida!
Visitors to the Atlantic Coast of South Florida who want a break from the hustle and bustle of this mostly urbanized area will find a welcome respite in northern Palm Beach County. The 120-acre Jupiter Inlet Outstanding Natural Area packs in a remarkable array of natural and historical resources in addition to its spectacular namesake lighthouse. The 105 foot tall brick lighthouse itself, an early homestead, and other historic structures are visitor and photographer mainstays and are open for tours most days. However, don’t end your visit there. An interpretive trail traverses several Florida coast vegetation types and ends with an overlook of mangrove forest and the intracoastal waterway.
Photo tip: A polarizing filter works just like polarized sunglasses and cuts the glare on the water surface and other objects. This will improve photo clarity of manatees as they remain mostly under water, and also brings out the colors of all scenery – it’s my mainstay filter and as a bonus it (like any filter) protects the camera lens from scratches.
The waters around the ONA offer opportunities for snorkeling, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding past mangroves and other native vegetation. Osprey, herons, egrets and ibis are commonly seen along the shore. In winter, manatees congregate in the adjoining waterways and are often visible surfacing for air right next to shore. Look for gopher tortoises along the trails sunning themselves at mid-day.
Photo tip: When photographing wildlife, try to capture behaviors; an osprey eating a fish, a tortoise walking towards its burro. This makes for more interesting shots than an animal just standing looking at the camera.
This is what I carry around almost every day, usually in a black Maxpedition Sitka pack. What watch I choose depends on activity. Apple Watch to regular workdays or a jog, the Jaeger on important meetings or to balance out an under dressed outfit. The G-shock whenever I feel the need to express or act out my inner explorer and of course when I’m out hunting or trekking.
I’m very into high waist pants, not only because they are very flattering but also because they look extra chic! One thing that I love about this pair in specific is the fabric. It’s actually made from “super soft high stretch denim”. Which means it’s very forgiving and comfortable. Just the way high waist jeans should be! What are your thoughts? Are you a fan or aren’t you? Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend, xo Pam this pair
Me gustan mucho los pantalones de cintura alta porque además de que quedan muy bien se ven súper chic. Una cosa que me encanta de estos jeanses la tela. Están hecho de una tela de jeans super suave y elástica, lo que significa que son súper cómodos. ¿Qué te parece esta tendencia? Dime que opinas en la sección de comentarios. Espero que tengan un fin de semana lindo. Besos, Pam. estos jeans
The luxury of the weekend offers the perfect opportunity to get out of town for a few days. Whether you’re hitting the open road with close friends or planning a staycation in your own city just for fun, these warm-weather essentials will freshen up your weekend wardrobe in no time.
Start with a roomy weekender bag, throw in some sunglasses, a comfy romper and espadrilles, and you’ll be squashing that wanderlust bug in style.
Imagining Harry and Louis papped together at Coachella is a real dream....
