The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer in Fla are a great time to drive up and down US1 to explore, or maybe just go out on a boat trip.
Given that Needlepoint Land is closed on Saturdays during August and September, the hubster and I decided to pay a visit yesterday to the Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Fort Pierce.
Surprisingly, I had never been to this little gem of a place.
Definitely worth the trip. There are several themes within the gardens: Coral Reef, Reflecting Pond, Japanese, Rainforest, and the highlight, Bonsai Garden.
There is a replica of an original pioneer house and a Chickee Hut. While it was extremely hot and humid yesterday in this neck of the woods, I imagine this jaunt would be much more enjoyable during the fall and spring.
Next on the Summer Saturday field trip agenda is a visit to the Morikami Japanese Gardens near Palm Beach.
Then again, I want to go see my beloved panthers on the West Coast of Fla.
