As one of South Florida’s most natural thrills, it is always amazing to most that some 3,000 enormous sea turtles still lumber onto South Florida’s beaches at night to lay their eggs.  
Every summer, March through October, our pristine beaches are decorated with neon colored tape and signs to show where these ancient creatures have buried their nest.

Under the pale light the moon shines onto the beaches, turtle nesting season is such an awe-inspiring scene to watch. As the sea turtles wade their way up to the beach to dig holes in the sand and lay their eggs to then disappear back into the deep blue.
Up and down the beautiful Atlantic Coast, you can witness this amazing spectacle yourself as many environmental groups and parks organize the summer nighttime…

A very special and very colorful art installation is making its way to the Waterfront in Downtown West Palm Beach. “The Pool” by artist Jen Lewin is a gorgeous, interactive art installation that has made its way around the nation and will now be right here in sunny, South Florida for a few months. West Palm Beach Waterfront is calling the summer activity “A Summer in Paradise.”

The Pool is comprised of glowing, concentric circles that are supposed to be stepped on. Lewin’s idea is for people to come and play on the installation, which will change colors as you step on the different circles. That way everyone can make their own art depending on how you step on them. It is an ever evolving art piece.

“A Summer in Paradise” is also offering other unique

The U.S. Open Sectional Qualifier is routinely considered "the longest day in golf". Golfers from all over who advanced out of their local qualifier head to the sectional qualifiers to play 36 holes with a precious few spots on the line into the U.S. Open.

Four spots were up for grabs Monday at the Bears Club in Jupiter. One name on the list stood out in particular, and not just because he has a house inside the club and is a resident member.

Luke Donald at one point in 2012 was the #1 ranked golfer in the World. Now, after some less than steller play as of recent, found himself outside the top 60 and having to qualify through a sectional qualifier for what he said was the first time in “10 or 11 years”. 

“It’s not something I’m very accustomed to,”

"Today was a lot better," Tiger Woods said when he was describing his finla round 74 at the Memorial Tournament. 

The only problem with that statement, is his Sunday 74 followed a Saturday 85 so it could not have gotten much worse. While Woods improved 11 shots on Sunday, much of the discussion was about the 85 Tiger shot on Saturday, his worst single round as a professional. After making the cut on the number on Friday at 1-under and showing glimpses of the old Tiger at times, his 15-over par weekend left everyone scratching their heads and having more questions then answers, including Tiger.

“This is a lonely sport,” Tiger said Sunday. “The manager is not going to come in and bring the righty or bring the lefty, you've just got to play through
