Cruise the scenic North Fork of the Saint Lucie River
This cruise will start at approximately 1:30 PM, immediately following a southern seafood feast that is scheduled to begin at 11:30 AM at Veterans Park/Rivergate in Port St. Lucie. After a locally prepared meal of jumbo shrimp, sausage, Bojack’s famous seafood rice, corn-on-thecob, potatoes, and cornbread (two kinds!), the boats will cruise north to White City (near Ft. Pierce) and back to Veterans Park. The park (which is open 24/7) offers ample lighted parking, three boat ramps, a lighted boardwalk/riverwalk that traverses a natural habitat, and a Pearl Harbor Memorial Monument. Alcoholic beverages will not be served at this event (although onboard happy-hours are “discretionary”).

The weather at this time of the year is quite pleasant, with temperatures expected to be around 85°F. Brief, early-afternoon rain showers become less likely toward late September, but are not unheard of. Be sure to bring your sunscreen.
The Port St. Lucie/Jensen Beach/Stuart area has numerous hotels and bed-and-breakfast facilities in the vicinity. An internet search for area lodging will provide plenty of options.
If sufficient interest exists, an impromptu Saturday-morning cruise of the South Fork of the
