Blowing Rocks Preserve has the longest and most dramatic stretch of rocky coastline in Florida.  This preserve on Jupiter Island contains a rock terrace at the water’s edge of Anastasia limestone that is tinted red with iron.  During high tide or stormy seas, waves pound the eroded terrace and “blow” through holes in the rock.  Salt spray plumes can reach up to 50 feet in the air!  

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present.
