First stop was the Jupiter Lighthouse.
There are 105 stairs to the top, which was not too bad, other than there was a railing on only one side, but I was careful, as falling and getting hurt is one of my major concerns.
Here are a couple of views from the top showing the Jupiter Inlet where the Loxahatchee River empties into the Atlantic Ocean:
My next stop was a small park near the Jupiter Inlet. It was windy and I immediately slid on my rear down a dune, almost landing on this guy:
After brushing the sand off myself, I headed down the beach to the inlet and saw this guy. Yes, he had only one leg, but seemed to hop around just fine. I think he is a western sandpiper.
Here's a small flock of birds. The ones with the orange beaks are royal terns. There is one juvenile royal tern in the lower middle that looks like the others but has a black beak:
It was really windy and rough, but since it was a school holiday, there were a lot of kids out surfing, or at least trying to surf. I did not actually see many really riding waves, but they seemed to be having fun anyway.
It took about a dozen tries, but I finally got a photo of a pelican diving for a fish:
They seemed to be doing pretty good and seemed to be catching something at every dive in this small area near the pier.
