Laidback & Lovely Town on Hectic Treasure Coast
"Born on a bed of flowers..."
So the Old Town sign proclaims, & I am inclined to believe it!
Stuart is a lovely little town near Port St. Lucie, on the Atlantic seaboard of Florida known as the Treasure Coast. It’s a comfortable easygoing place, with none of the messy traffic of Daytona, or the glitzy glamour of West Palm Beach, and thankfully it’s not a major Spring Break destination either!
"After The Storms"
I’m afraid my photos of Stuart won’t do it justice, since I was visiting & clicking away in early October 2004, a mere couple of weeks after two devastating hurricanes in a row made landfall here (see my Frances & Jeanne travelogues on this page).
But the cleanup has come a long way, and the shellshocked residents are picking up and going on with their lives.
