Jensen Beach Causeway

Stopped by the Jensen Beach Causeway earlier today, on my way to have lunch at a little Italian restaurant called Alberto’s Pizzeria that serves a delicious Eggplant Parm sub.

It’s a simple, unassuming place, right across from miles of sandy beach on a barrier island.

Below are views of the Indian River Lagoon that I took from the causeway.  This lagoon is one of the reasons the area remains one of the most beautiful parts of Florida, even though, as I used to talk about at some length in my legacy blog, pollution discharge from Lake Okeechobee as well as septic, pesticide, and lawn fertilizer runoff from development has caused serious local environmental issues in the breathtaking inlet where the St. Lucie and Indian rivers converge.

The liquid pastel colors of the water and sky looked almost like a watercolor painting, more dazzling than yesterday when the skies were overcast and it was drizzly.

I’ll resume showing you regular needlepoint pics tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy!
