While the snow birds have fled to northern climes, the slower pace at Monterey has been relaxing, but not without activity. The permanent residents still enjoy golf whenever they want and of course, the pool gossip continues.
The golf course is in excellent shape, enhancements to the outer wall at the entrance have been added and the maintenance crews are busy with summer cleanup and repairs.
There was a nice 4th of July luncheon at the Club House, arranged by Robbie Hart and volunteers, and of course a great Independence Day celebration at Flagger Park in Stuart with our own Bill DeNeill on drums with the Stuart Community Band, followed by a spectacular fireworks display over the St. Lucie River.
Numerous other opportunities have presented themselves for some creative photography by the local "paparazzi".
