#FindAustinAndPerry

I have been glued to the news about the two missing boys from Jupiter, Florida. With each update I hope upon hope to hear good news. Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen, both 14, disappeared off the coast of Jupiter on Friday and haven’t been seen since. Their boat was found yesterday, capsized off from the Ponce de Leon Inlet.

Growing up in Jupiter, I know it’s not a crazy thing for two 14 year olds to head out to the ocean, unsupervised. My little brother growing up was always on the water, with friends. Boating, diving, spear fishing…going to the Bahamas! It’s just how it is in a small beach town. Many kids I grew up with had boats of their own at young ages. And just like Austin & Perry, were very capable of handling themselves on the water.

Sometimes, though, things happen. The ocean is a very beautiful and amazing thing. It can also be very unforgiving. Seasoned Boat Captains can be overtaken by the ocean just the same as anyone else.

Today’s news suggests the boys may have made a floatation device out of their cooler and their life jackets. I’m so relieved that there is still hope. My heart has been slowly breaking, thinking of their families and what they are going through. It’s been phenomenal to watch the community around them come together.  I will continue to hope for a good outcome. I hope you will too.

Hugs to you all. – Nicole

At The Juno Beach Pier

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve been to the Juno Beach Pier. I forgot how amazing the view of our gorgeous Atlantic Ocean is from there! I took a leisurely, evening stroll down the pier with my husband last weekend, and it did not disappoint!

Located just off from the Ocean Rescue Headquarters at 14776 Highway A1A, Juno Beach, Florida 33408. The pier is the perfect spot for anglers, beach goers and spectators. Admission fees are $4.00 for anglers and $1.00 for spectators. If you’re fishing off the pier, they have a a small bait shop located right at the admission gate. Need an ice cream on a hot day? They have that too!

Admittedly, I’m not a very good fisherlady. Honestly I don’t have the patience for it and watching the caught fish flop around out of the water, breaks my heart every time! However, it was quite humorous to walk down the pier and see the fish out smarting the fisherman the whole time! There were HUGE fish below the pier, probably close to 50 anglers all up and down the pier and not one of them were catching anything!

Check out the size of those bad boys!

 

It was awesome to watch the giant bait balls swim in formation, making perfect circles around the larger fish. The perspective from the pier is really cool!

If you look close, you can see the stingray that swam by.

You just can’t help but feel yourself relax looking at the view from the pier! Not only are the views spectacular, the pier also plays an important role with keeping our local marinelife safe and the environment healthy. You can learn more about the Responsible Pier Initiative on the Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s website here.

This is just one of the MANY reasons I love working & living in Jupiter, Florida. If you live in the Jupiter area, be sure and take a some time to enjoy the pier from time to time. It really is quite lovely.
