Summer 2013

Mid-July 2013 is upon us.     It's been very rainy and stormy for much of July, with rainfall here at Tiara Towers  above normal at over 14  inches of rain reported for Ft Pierce between May and July alone.     Despite the rain life is great here on the beach, for the few year-round residents and many renters, families, and friends who are here.

Passing By

Lots of visitors to our area this summer.  Some you may have missed.....

  • Lost count of the number of turtle nests sited on the beach in front of our two towers....last count was about a dozen!
  • Manatees and turtles have been sighted swimming close in to the shore.
  • Sharks have visited once or twice, that we've been able to capture in pictures!

Upgrade at the South Pool

At the South building a tree in the pool area was dead or dying, and in danger of falling into the pool where it might injure someone.   Over the past month the tree was cut down, then dug out, and finally replaced with a new one.

Fortunately it hasn't been necessary to make similar changes at the North pool.
