For the past 7 years, groups on my nature walks have enjoyed tasting sea grapes on the North Jetty walks. There have always been hundreds, no thousands of grapes that we enjoyed from October into January. However, this year there are none to be found.
(Ed. Note:On the second and third Thursdays from now until April, Bud will conduct guided nature walks at North Jetty Beach Park on the north side of Venice Inlet. Give Bud a call if you want to join him: Bud Doyle at 941 488-4158 )
