PORT SALERNO: HISTORIC FISHING VILLAGE ON MANATEE POCKET
Port Salerno is on Florida's east coast immediately south of Stuart. It is on the St. Lucie River near the inlet to the Atlantic Ocean in a sheltered branch of the river known as Manatee Pocket.
The pocket is well known by mariners as a natural "hurricane hole." This is a better place for your vessel to be sheltered during a bad storm as any harbor along the east coast of Florida.

The Twisted Tuna is on the shoreline of Port Salerno. It offers a beautiful view of the water that surrounds it on two sides, and is well known for its delicious seafood offerings. You can visit the restaurant by land or on a boat.
The interior is bright and open, and you have your choice of dining inside or outside on one of the decks. The menu features something for everyone, but seafood is the specialty of the house.

April is our favorite time of year. This year not so much, however, because many of us are staying at home because of the global virus pandemic. The weather is great, and we enjoy our time at home by reading and getting caught up on chores. March was warmer than usual. Most of our snowbirds typically go back north this month,
but many are staying in their Florida homes during the pandemic. No restaurants are open yet for inside dining. Some are offering take out or delivery services.
HERE ARE SOME INTERESTING FLORIDA EVENTS FOR APRIL:
FLORIDA WINERIES. Check the Florida winery nearest you. Many of them have wonderful weekend events that include music and wine tastings. Our site has information on 27 wineries scattered across the state. We plan to add even more when we have time to visit them.
FLORIDA TOURIST ATTRACTIONS. We have an extensive list of Florida Tourist Attractions. Some of them are well known; other are a wonderful step back into Old Florida.
FLORIDA FESTIVALS. There are several
outside events this time of year. Among these are outdoor art festivals and folk and bluegrass music festivals.
BEST BEACHES IN FLORIDA. Almost anything you decide to do in Florida can be enhanced by spending some quality time at a great beach, and best beaches in Florida will guide you in the right direction.

Macomber, and his historical novels featuring Captain Peter Wake of the U.S. Navy.
