About Fort Pierce

As one of the oldest communities on the east coast of Florida, Fort Pierce has borne witness to the changing tides of history - as well as the changing tides of the Atlantic Ocean - for over 104 years. The days of one-room log houses and quiet river commerce has given way to diverse possibilities as the city has grown to over 41,000 residents, but the echoes of the rural past can still be felt in the peaceful quality of the lives our residents lead just a short distance from the hustle and bustle of both West Palm Beach and Orlando. Ours is a diverse yet neighborly community, embracing both the richness of our heritage and the promise of the future in St. Lucie County Downtown, within sight of the timeless waters of the Indian River Lagoon, affords our residents contemporary shopping, dining and a range of entertainment and activities.

Modern educational and research facilities, like top-ranked Indian River Community College, the $6 million Smithsonian Institution Research Center, the Manatee Observation and Education Center and Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, live in harmony with the completely renovated 1925 City Hall and the current restoration of the historic, 1,200 seat Sunrise Theatre, which will serve as a regional performing arts center.

The community's vision for the future captures our rich, colorful history and blends it - beautifully - into the spirit of modern life.

Hi my friends,

the pictures above are made at the harbor in Fort Pierce, Florida. I've enjoyed that afternoon there doing some photos. As an artist myself and hubby too, we have also visited the Backus-Museum there by the waterfront. Photos about that visit will be online tomorrow. So, come back tomorrow to see the art in the park.

And thank you for all your wonderful comments from yesterday :)

See you tomorrow,
