Horseback riding on the beach

Here’s something to put on your bucket list: Horseback riding on the beach.  You know what a bucket list is – things to do before you kick the bucket.   A horseback ride on the beach is an experience you will always remember.  The only place you can do it on the Treasure Coast is at Frederick Douglass Memorial Park on South Hutchinson Island in Fort Pierce.  In fact, that’s one of the few places in all of Florida where you can do it.   If you own your own horse, you can buy a permit from the St.

Ordinary mosquitoes are enough of a problem on the Treasure Coast during the rainy season from June through October.  Now we are being warned about daytime-biting mosquitoes that carry the dengue virus or the chikungunya virus.  Both cause tropical diseases.  Neither is usually fatal.  But each can make you miserable for days or weeks.  Fever, headache, nausea, extreme pain in the muscles and joints.  Last year, 24 cases of locally acquired dengue fever were reported in Martin County.  This year, health officials fear the chikungunya virus could also invade our area.  A person goes to, say,
