North of SE Ocean

Yesterday's walk began at the intersection of St. Lucie Boulevard with SE Ocean Boulevard, where St. Lucie extends northward as a loop that moves traffic behind and around Cedar Pointe condo complex, Cedar Pointe Plaza, St. Lucie Apartments, the St. Lucie Club and various small residential communities before ending westward at SE Ocean again near the Sunoco station.

The area is mapped as 'Snug Harbor', possibly due to lack of winning opposition argument. A pile of plant debris was piled in the roadway itself a short distance from SE Ocean at the bridge over the St. Lucie River, large branches and cut trunks on the asphalt as if the roadway itself is private property. Workers at a nearby residential property had their materials-compounds buckets set in plain view of passers-by the driveway entrance.

The walk around the riverfront loop is quiet and serene, with large and beautiful homes mingled with concrete-block longhouse structures -- the river flows close by but is not directly observable from the roadway.
