JUPITER, FL

Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on June 2, 2010

Last weekend, I gave a talk at Jupiter library, but first, my husband and I drove around to explore the town.   Jupiter Lighthouse

We  stopped at Dubois Park but it was Memorial Day weekend and the park was mobbed with picnickers. It looked to be impossible to get a parking spot so we drove on. We went next to Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, in service since 1860 with a museum and gift shop. Tours cost $7 but you can get a good photo from the parking lot. We took another photo from across the Intracoastal where we ate lunch at The Crab House. Another trendy restaurant, Guanabanas (http://www.guanabanas.com/), is down the street but self-parking is a few doors down and the skies were heavy with threatening rain clouds. We’ll have to try that one next time. I am grateful to my Internet Fan, Suzie Burrows, for traveling to the library to meet me, and the other authors who attended: Melissa Alvarez, Traci Hall, and Marilyn Campbell. Readers filled the other seats and we had a lively discussion. Thanks, too, to Classic Bookshop from Palm Beach for bringing my books to sell. You gotta love our libraries and indie bookstores!

  1. Sounds like a fun and productive day, and well worth the trip up there.

  2. I used to live under that lighthouse! It’s maintained by the Coast Guard and the CG housing is below it. (My dad is CG).

  3. Next visit maybe we’ll have time to do the tour. Yes, I gathered it’s still under Coast Guard control. They’re the ones who conduct the tour. It’s a nice area.

  4. Darn I’m sorry I missed it! Jupiter is a nice area and expensive!
