We had a wonderful day, you should try it! (Click here for video).
The Blue Heron is a drift fishing operation that hails from the Port of Palm Beach. It generally has two tours of fishing per day. This video is of ONE FUN AFTERNOON TOUR that my family, and I greatly joyed. The trips are four hours long, and as a general rule dinner is caught. We not only had fun, but enjoyed 2 dinners for four, one that night, and another at a later date.
Fish does not get any fresher than that.
And believe me, fresh caught fish does taste better than fish bought from the grocery. When fresh caught, fish do not have that odor that most people associate with fish. This is because that fishy smell is actually a bacteria that grows on fish rapidly once it is caught and is dead. Take a cruise on the Miss Blue Heron and see for yourself. It is great.

Every year protected species of “Sea Turtles” return back to where they were born to hatch their young.
Sometimes this may be 20 years after they crawled into the dangerous Sea to try to survive.
Singer Island is on of the nesting places for these magnificent endangered sea animals.
The Environmental Protection Agency has labeled these Sea Turtles.(Greens, Leather-backs, and Loggerheads) as endangered species.
To touch, dig or poses eggs, or worse is a Federal Crime. Their nests when found (the beach is searched every day in our area and marked with yellow tape).
Please leave these areas alone.
I had the privilege to meet with one of the Florida Fish and Wildlife personnel to take this video.
I will do a follow-up when I can go to the “Turtle Rescue Center”, and have a one on one with my friend Sue Flemming, (FF&WL).
Till then leave these nests alone!

|image: http://www.snopes.com/images/red.gif||FALSE: The photo displayed above shows a frozen Alaskan tree frog.|
Origins: A photo purportedly showing a frozen Alaskan tree frog has been circulating on the Internet since at least 2013, frequently accompanied by a brief sentence explaining how this amazing amphibian supposedly survives the harsh arctic winters:
While there is a species of frog in Alaska that can survive the area’s harsh winters, that species is not the “Alaskan tree frog.” According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, that state is home to two species of frogs: The Columbia spotted frog (Rana luteiventris) and the wood frog (Rana sylvatica). There is no animal known as an Alaskan tree frog.
There is, however, an amphibian that lives in Alaska and has an unusually high tolerance for freezing conditions. In August 2013, a report waspublished in The Journal of Experimental Biology explaining how the wood frog was able to survive long winters in Alaska:
The way wood frogs avoid freezing to death is due to so-called cryoprotectants — solutes that lower the freezing temperature of the animal’s tissues. These include glucose (blood sugar) and urea and have been found in much higher concentrations in the Alaskan wood frogs than in their southern counterparts.
Increased levels of cryoprotectants help the frogs’ cells survive. In most animals, prolonged exposure to subzero temperatures causes cellular shrinkage — a process in which the formation of ice in the tissues pulls water from the body’s cells, essentially sucking them dry and eventually killing the cell. (Related: Champions of the Cold.) But cryoprotectants help the cells resist that shrinkage. “The solutes tend to depress the freezing point [of tissue],” said (Jon Costanzo of the Department of Zoology at Miami University in Ohio). “It limits the amount of ice that actually forms in the body at any part. The more of that cryoprotective solute you can accumulate, the less ice will form and therefore the less stress there is on cells and tissues.”
The viral photo displayed above does not show an Alaskan tree frog (since no such animal exists), nor does it show a wood frog. This widely-circulated image appears to be simply a garden ornament that has been covered with frost. The video below shows what an actual wood frog looks like as it freezes and thaws during the winter:
