January 2015

Boaters fill the Intracoastal Waterway Jan. 20 at the Lauderdale Marina in Fort Lauderdale. Ted Drum, president of the family-owned marina established in 1948, credits low gas prices and the recovering economy for the increase of recreational boaters.
At Hollywood Marina on a recent Sunday afternoon, the can’t-be-beat South Florida winter was a whisper warmer than it usually is in mid-January — and wily motor boaters didn't let the opportunity pass by. Not just because of the weather. Not just because the seas were calm. But also because the price of gas is low, low, low.
It’s a gruesome winter for Florida’s coastal wildlife, with multiple slashings of pelican pouches in the lower Keys and killings of bottlenose dolphins in Panhandle waters.
Superintendent Pedro Ramos

The Stone Crab & Seafood Festival takes place Saturday, Jan. 17, at Esplanade Park in downtown Fort Lauderdale, where local eateries will bring out their best seafood dishes.
Imagine visiting over a dozen specialty restaurants in a single day. Riverwalk’s upcoming 4th Annual Stone Crab & Seafood Festival will offer just that all in one waterfront setting.
Fort Lauderdale’s Winterfest, sponsored by the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. This year Rapper Flo Rida, from Carroll City, will act as grand marshal, riding in the lead boat during the  Saturday, Dec.13 event.
As you watch the upcoming boat parades, sipping a hot chocolate or something stronger, consider the effort that goes into making those passing boats stand out against a South Florida sky.
