Give the Sea a Rub, Show it Some Love

If you’re like most South Floridians, you probably take the fact that we live moments from one of the best strips of beaches in the world for granted. It’s not that we don’t love the ocean; we do – it’s just that the last time many of us visited the beach was sometime before Jeb took office. This is why you should consider the Ocean Day Celebration your chance to get some quality time with Big Blue. This Friday the folks at Gumbo Limbo Environmental Complex team up with the Morikami Museum and Shore Beach Bar (6 S. Ocean Blvd., Delray Beach) to provide an evening of food and cocktails, all while dishing about the sea’s importance to SoFla. Attendees will also have the opportunity to sign up for Gumbo Limbo’s next sea turtle hatching, and you can be sure those little guys care an awful lot about what happens to our oceans. Tickets run $10 to $20, and can be purchased at www.morikami.com.
