Summer Days Ahead

Daphne Nikolopoulos daphne@palmbeachillustrated.com

CAPEHART

When vaccines first became available, the first thing I did was reschedule last summer’s canceled trips—and add a few new ones to the mix. As a result, it’s going to be a busy summer, but nothing feels as good as booking international travel again. If you agree, you’re going to love this issue. We have curated a thoughtful mix of summer adventures that offer insight both on far-flung locales and destinations closer to home. If you love a good road trip (and you also love to experience local cuisine), turn to page 60 for our “Foodie Road Trip.” In this fun, informative package, you’ll discover our state’s hottest culinary stops and learn where to get the best key lime pie, find neighborhood favorites, dine with a view of the sunset, and even sign up for hands-on cooking experiences. For the food-inclined, this editor-tested and -approved resource is a must. For our fashion feature this month, we decamped to Islamorada to the Frisbie family’s new resort, The Islands of Islamorada. Our crew stayed for a couple of days to shoot the story— and they didn’t want to leave. Check out “A Place in the Sun” on page 72, and you’ll see why. One of the travel trends that grew in popularity during the pandemic (and it’s still going strong) is travel via RV. And why not? Luxury RVs are like homes on wheels, with every creature comfort and then some. For big families (pets included!) in particular, it’s the only way to go. In “Happy Campers,” on page 82, we highlight some of our favorite destinations for outdoor adventures statewide. It affords all the fun of camping without, you know, actual camping. Whatever excursions are on your horizon this summer, we’ve got you covered. Happy trails!

Marcus Neuroscience Institute: Advanced Brain and Spine Tumor Care, Research

T

umors on the brain or spine can be difficult to treat and remove. At Marcus Neuroscience Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, part of Baptist Health, we use the most advanced diagnostic tools to identify tumor types. Our neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists and radiation oncologists then develop treatment plans designed to avoid damage to nearby structures in the body that control movement and other critical functions. Our spine program at Marcus Neuroscience Institute has earned The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval® — a national recognition highlighting our commitment to quality and safety. This honor also underscores the brain and spine tumor expertise available to patients in South Florida. “The physicians here at Marcus Neuroscience Institute come from major academic centers, have written national guidelines for spine tumor care, and have led brain and spine tumor education and research programs,” says Frank Vrionis, M.D., MPH, Ph.D., Institute director and chairman of neurosurgery. “We bring a lot of expertise to this region.” Advanced technology Precision and safety are priorities when it comes to brain or spine tumor surgery. Marcus Neuroscience Institute

Full Page.indd 1

neurosurgeons use interoperative imaging systems to gather real-time pictures of a patient’s brain or spine during a procedure, and they also are skilled in robotically assisted spine surgery.

We also collaborate with Scripps Research Institute and other research colleagues across the country to study how brain and spine tumors develop and to test new treatments.

Plus, Boca Raton Regional Hospital is one of just a few hospitals in Florida with the Medtronic Mazor X robotic spine surgery system.

On the horizon A current $10 million expansion— to be completed in summer 2021 — will add 10,000 square feet to Marcus Neuroscience Institute. This expansion will add outpatient infusion, procedure rooms and a research lab focused on the study of stem cells and their impact on brain tumor growth and treatment.

Collaborative, patient-centered cancer care Not all brain or spine tumors are cancerous, but those that are often require specialized and ongoing treatments. Marcus Neuroscience Institute’s brain and spine tumor program is part of a collaborative clinic based at Lynn Cancer Institute. There, our physicians participate in a weekly meeting to discuss specific patient cases and then meet with those patients as a team immediately after for consultation. Research strength Many patients with brain or spine tumors benefit from clinical research. Boca Raton Regional Hospital is part of the Alliance National Clinical Trials Network and NRG Oncology. Participation in these research organizations gives the Institute’s brain and spine tumor program the ability to offer the latest clinical trials for neurologic cancer.

Marcus Neuroscience Institute’s brain and spine tumor team includes Institute Director and Chairman of Neurosurgery Frank Vrionis, M.D., MPH, Ph.D.; Director of Medical Neuro-oncology Sajeel Chowdhary, M.D., and neurosurgeons Timothy Miller Jr., M.D., Evan Packer, M.D., Brian Snelling, M.D., and Lloyd Zucker, M.D. The team also includes Marcus Neuroscience Institute neurologists, radiation oncologists and neuropathologists. For more information on Marcus Neuroscience Institute’s brain and spine tumor program, call 561-955-4600 or visit BRRH.com/MNI. Promotional

5/27/21 10:33 AM


The high-tech diagnostic tools and minimally invasive technologies utilized by Marcus Neuroscience Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital are among the many innovations we use to find the treatment solution that’s best for you. Our highly trained experts are leading the way in neurological research and advanced therapies, taking a personalized approach to treatment, delivered with the heart of Baptist Health. We’re also proud to serve as the primary site for Florida Atlantic University’s neurology residency program. Together, we’re training the next generation of neurologists and neuroscientists, who will help improve quality of life and contribute to lifesaving research in the neurosciences.

INSIDER By Skye Sherman

Photographer Francesca Coviello Dunham of Coviello Photo is based in Delray Beach but lives out of her 26-foot 1962 Airstream Overlander when traveling to shoot weddings and engagements. She and her husband renovated Sterling with the help of local vendors before embarking on her maiden voyage: a 16,500-mile cross-country adventure. “Transitioning from a big house to under 200 square feet was no easy feat,” Dunham admits. “But having built-in creature comforts made us always feel at home on the road.” To the many young professionals embracing nomadic lifestyles, Dunham recommends investing in little luxuries to make it work. “We made the bed a priority and splurged on a custom latex mattress,” she says. They keep several sets of organic sheets on hand to stay fresh between laundry days, maximized kitchen space since they both love to cook, and are self-contained with water tanks— “a total game-changer” since running water is a tiny-living rarity. In a home on wheels, Dunham says, every item must have a purpose and less is truly more: “Be methodical with your systems and storage, and only bring belongings that will spark joy on a daily basis,” she advises. And, of course, a WiFi hotspot is “a necessary evil.” (coviellophoto.com)

Fresh from a $1.8 million renovation, West Palm Beach’s landmark Centennial Fountain now stars Clematis by Light, a water show synchronized with music, lights, and coordinated displays on the surrounding palm trees. Even when its 109 LEDs producing up to 16.7 million colors are not engaged in a show, the fountain remains active with “dancing” water. Through the end of summer, the fountain is running the patriotic Salute Our CommUNITY show Thursdays through Sundays from 8 to 10 p.m. (wpb.org)

There’s a lot to love about Charlie & Joe’s at Love Street, including the great outdoors. In partnership with Jupiter Outdoor Center, the venue recently launched Love Street Outdoor Center so guests can explore the Jupiter Inlet—think: happy-hour cruises and narrated manatee tours—and set sail directly from the docks at Love Street. A 30-minute cruise costs $16 per person and can be booked online. (love streetoutdoorcenter.com)

BEACH DAY BUY West Palm Beach cousins Scott Lachapelle and Will Sherman spent their summer lockdown biking to the beach—and frustrated by how cumbersome it is to juggle sunscreen, chair, towel, beer, and other necessities. When their search for the ideal beach bag turned up zilch, they put their heads together and invented the Bumruk, a lightweight backpack-chair that makes beachgoing a breeze. Their design, which promises to be “the most comfortable backpack you’ve ever sat in,” went viral on TikTok; Bumruks are scheduled to ship in August. (bumruk.com)

INSIDER LIVING WITH IVEY

Beauty FOOD How what we eat AFFECTS OUR SKIN By Ivey Leidy Photography by Kent Anderson We all know how important diet is to overall health, but the power of food extends to beauty, too. What we eat plays a huge role in the appearance of our skin—its youthfulness and elasticity (or lack thereof). Beauty may come from within, but sometimes our body displays external cues to indicate our health. I consider the skin a map that outlines what’s going on inside the body. Oftentimes, the health of our gut is written on our skin, almost as a warning sign. Whether these signals show up as a breakout, dehydrated and dry skin, or a condition like eczema or rosacea caused by gut dysbiosis, our bodies are always communicating with us. For example, eczema can be an indicator of gluten sensitivity, and acne is often associated with dairy allergies. Changing your diet may improve your skin. The most important nutrients for healthy, supple skin are omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and collagen. Collagen supplements—and whether or not they work—are a trending topic. Collagen is a protein found in skin and connective tissue that gives skin its structure and elasticity. As we age, we produce less of it, hence the wrinkles. Because the body creates collagen from the food we consume, it’s safe to say that the most effective approach to increasing collagen levels is to eat foods that naturally boost production of this protein. Certain foods contain available collagen the body can use to help to promote the natural production of collagen—which can’t be said about over-the-counter synthetic collagen supplements. (A rule I live by is that food is your primary source of fuel for everything your body needs, and supplements are just that—supplements to food.) Some collagenboosting foods include bone broth, fish and shellfish, eggs, and foods rich in vitamin E, vitamin C, and zinc. Omega-3 fatty acids—essential fats that we can only get from food—are also vital to skin and overall health. Omega-3s decrease inflammation throughout the body, fight acne, protect against the sun’s harmful rays, and improve the skin’s natural moisture barrier, helping to keep out irritants and bacteria and giving you that healthy, dewy 32

glow. Foods rich in omega-3s and healthy fats include salmon, tuna, avocados, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. Other foods that can improve skin health are those high in antioxidants, such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, and other antioxidants that the body converts to vitamin A, the natural retinol; some examples are sweet potatoes, bell peppers, broccoli, dark leafy greens, tomatoes, citrus, berries, and dark chocolate that is 70 percent cacao or more. And good news for wine drinkers—red grapes contain resveratrol, an antioxidant that protects against free radicals, slowing the aging process. To prevent sun damage, up your intake of cruciferous vegetables containing sulfuric compounds that act as a natural SPF, including broccoli and kale, as well as garlic.

SKIN CARE DON’TS • Over-washing: Our bodies’ natural oils act as barriers against bacteria and allergens. Stick to a deep cleanse at night and a gentle cleanse during the day. The nighttime routine is the most important, as your skin has been exposed to pollutants and dirt all day. • Insufficient sleep: Collagen synthesis happens during rest, when cortisol levels are low. • Dehydration: Excess of anything diuretic (like alcohol

and coffee) is very dehydrating, causing early signs of aging. Frequent water consumption helps to hydrate your body’s cells and organs, especially its largest—your skin. • Poor diet: A diet high in processed foods and refined sugar results in decreased collagen production. • Stress: An excess of the stress hormone cortisol has been shown to cause acne flare-ups.

• Remove tofu from packaging and place between several paper towels. • Rest a heavy cutting board or book on top of tofu and let the liquid drain for at least an hour. I typically do this the morning of and let it dry all day—this ensures your tofu gets nice and crispy. • After drying, cut tofu into equal-sized cubes. • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. • On a parchment-lined baking sheet, add cubed sweet potato and drizzle with avocado oil. • Roast for 20 minutes.

• While sweet potato is roasting, add 2 tbsp. of olive oil to a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. • Add tofu cubes and cook for 5 minutes on each side until crispy and golden brown. • Massage kale with 1 tbsp. olive oil and juice from 1 squeezed lemon wedge. • Arrange cucumber, avocado, roasted sweet potatoes, and tofu around your bed of kale. For the dressing, combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender then drizzle over salad. • Garnish with toasted sesame seeds.

Down to DESIGN

Originally from New York, interior designer David Lucido descended upon Palm Beach last fall to oversee the buildout of the restaurant Le Bilboquet—and has been back and forth between his apartments in Chelsea and West Palm Beach ever since. Before starting his own firm, Lucido studied visual communications and architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, then designed for a private estate, overseeing residential projects around the globe as well as completing yachting and aviation work. He also served as design director for the Mercer Hotel in Soho. Because he now spends most of his time in Palm Beach, working on residential and hospitality projects in the area, he’s actively house-hunting here alongside his partner, Ori Harpaz, and their beloved Jack Russell terrier, Gunther. —Skye Sherman

ith a complement of waterfalls, ice caves, black sand beaches, and glacial volcanoes, Iceland offers an otherworldly escape for Americans who have completed their COVID-19 vaccinations. While a visit to the capital city of Reykjavik is a must-do, a two-hour drive to Iceland’s South Coast gives travelers access to some of the island’s most awe-inspiring attractions. Southern Iceland’s wide-open spaces offer plenty of room to socially distance. While the Fagradalsfjall volcano—which began erupting near Reykjavik in March—remains untamed, Iceland has kept the COVID-19

pandemic under control by meticulously tracking cases. Today, U.S. citizens can visit if they’re fully vaccinated or can provide documentation of a prior infection. Upon arrival, visitors must take a PCR test and shelter in place until negative test results are received (typically within 6 to 24 hours). After that, you’re free to roam.

NATURAL BEAUTY ABOUNDS

The South Coast offers epic waterfalls, including Gljúfrabúi: Concealed by a cliff, it often sits unnoticed next to the tourist-favored, 200foot Seljalandsfoss waterfall. To get there you’ll wade through a shallow stream into a mossy cave, where gushing water theatrically cascades into a small pool lit as if by a spotlight. Or visit the mighty Gullfoss falls—unique in that you can take in their glory from above instead of below. But Iceland offers more than just waterfalls. For bubbling mud pots and boiling hot springs, make your way to the Geysir geothermal area or try Thingvellir National Park (thingvellir.is/en), a UNESCO World Heritage Site that marks the place where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet and drift apart. If you skipped the Blue Lagoon, stop at the nearby Secret Lagoon (secretlagoon.is) to dip in a lesscrowded, man-made pool fed by hot springs.

You’ll feel the power of Mother Nature on the volcanic black-sand beaches of Reynisfjara, where towering sea stacks jut from the Atlantic Ocean and powerful waves thunder ashore. The jagged basalt cliffs (a backdrop for cinematic works like Game of Thrones and Star Wars) are a perfect spot to snap Instagram-worthy pictures—but beware of sneaker waves, which have swept away unsuspecting visitors. To see the landscape from a slower pace, opt for a tour via native Icelandic horses by making reservations at Skeiðvellir (skeidvellir.is), a horse-breeding farm. Guided tours take riders through scenic meadows in the shadows of volcanoes and glaciers. If you visit southern Iceland during winter, explore the area’s ethereal ice caves with a guide from Southcoast Adventure (it’s dangerous to explore ice caves on your own) (southadventure.is). Inside a glacier atop the Katla volcano are wind-carved walls of curved ice in brilliant hues of blue. You’ll walk, crawl, and sometimes slide on your belly through mysterious passageways. Turn off your flashlight and the ice will twinkle like a star-filled sky.

In Iceland, a glacier cave tour should be accompanied by a guide. A stay at Hotel Rangá is the perfect way to recharge in luxury after a long day spent exploring icy landscapes.

ICELANDIC HOSPITALITY

To spend days exploring, refueling is key. Don’t miss lunch at Friðheimar (fridheimar.is), a beautiful greenhouse where you’ll dine on delicious tomato-inspired dishes and sip drinks among colorful crops. Or stop in at family-run Efstidalur Farm (efstidalur.is), where they turn their cows’ milk into organic ice cream in a

range of flavors every day. When it’s time to recharge, opt for a stay at Hotel Rangá (hotelranga.is), a luxury hotel perched along the East Rangá River.

Though Janet Levy and her husband, Mark, live full-time in an oceanfront home in Palm Beach, they never miss their annual getaways to Beaver Creek, Colorado, where they have been investors in multiple properties since the early 1980s when the area opened as a ski resort. There, they reside in a two-story penthouse condo in the Park Hyatt Hotel, which they purchased in 1988 as the hotel was being built at the base of Beaver Creek mountain. They’re centrally located in the walkable village and typically visit for two weeks around Christmas and two weeks in March, spending their days at leisure and their nights enjoying performances in the 530seat Vilar Performing Arts Center beneath the ice-skating rink. —Skye Sherman

Alys Beach is a New Urbanist town of 900 villas, cottages, and homes spread across 158 acres, all a short and sublimely walkable distance from the pristine white-sand beach. Visit to enjoy shops, restaurants, and even a 20-acre nature preserve.

Alys Beach pairs the LUXURY of a posh, far-flung resort with the family-friendly vibe of a LOW-KEY beach town By Kristen Desmond LeFevre On Highway 30A in Florida’s Panhandle— with its pastel palettes and beachy kitsch—a pair of stark white minaret-like structures announces that you’ve arrived in Alys Beach, a place utterly exotic and comfortable at the same time. Sure, you’re still in Florida, but the clusters of stark white-washed masonry buildings that gleam under the relentless sun make you think of—where is it exactly? Bermuda? Santorini? Muscat? Guatemala? Boasting a unique mix of worldly architectures in a way that just works, Alys Beach is a serene and sophisticated spot that feels worlds away from its location on Florida’s Emerald Coast, just a few hours west of Tallahassee. Twice the size of neighboring Seaside, Alys

Beach is an idyllic New Urbanist town of 900 villas, cottages, and homes built around central courtyards. You won’t find a hotel in Alys Beach; instead, visitors are invited to live like locals and rent a private pad, making it the ideal getaway for a refined family vacation. While you’ll surely be tempted to lounge all day in your perfectly appointed accommodations (many boasting private pools, fire pits, and roof decks), there’s plenty to see and do in the town beyond. Start your day with old-fashioned donuts and smoothies from Charlie’s Donut Truck; the converted Sunbeam bread truck parks next to the amphitheater every morning, chock-full of dough-based confections that bakers cut and glaze by hand. (The maple-bacon donut, which is topped with a mountain of bacon crumbles, sells out daily, so get there early to snag one.) The town’s palm tree-lined alleys, cobblestone streets, and public squares make exploring via bicycle a must-do, if only for the Instagram opportunities the outing affords. Kids and adults alike will relish the slow pace of cruising around town to peep and play at the many

water features and public art installations. Plus, there’s no better way to tour the town’s 20-acre nature preserve, which includes an elevated wooden boardwalk offering the best view of your natural surroundings—from a pine and cypress forest to a coastal dune lake to a meadow of wiregrass and wildflowers. While you’re at it, bike over to George’s (georgesatalysbeach.com) for a leisurely lunch. The menu invites guests to choose items from its spa-inspired Behave section (try the grilled salmon with red quinoa) or its more indulgent Misbehave section (the fried shrimp with hush puppies is a must-have). But at its heart, Alys is a beach town, so be sure to sample its sugary white Gulf of Mexico sand and water as clear as the Caribbean Sea. Skip hauling and setting up your beach gear; you can rent it with one call to The Bike Shop. Feeling peckish? Food and beverages can be delivered straight to your beach setup. Stay for the sunset (always sure to stun) and end the evening with a bespoke beach bonfire, complete with s’mores. It may be too dark to snap a good selfie for the ’Gram, but the memories will last a lifetime. (alysbeach.com)

STAYCATIONS

ODE TO THE ORB It seems appropriate that Robin Hill, whose work straddles art and design, would be chosen to display her photography inside The Betsy Orb—a curious, egg-shaped structure connecting the hotel’s two residential buildings. “The Art of the Orb” is a collection of different architectural perspectives of the Orb itself. Some are taken by day, some at night with the structure awash in projected light. They invite the viewer to contemplate its shape from above, below, and even peeking around a corner. The fun is in seeing the exhibit and then trying to replicate Hill’s perspectives (harder than you’d think) for Instagram.

Culture SAFARI Catch a VIBE and expand your cultural horizons at THE BETSY South Beach By Daphne Nikolopoulos You might not automatically associate Miami’s South Beach with incisive personal narratives or the intellectual examination of artistic expression, but this is exactly what makes The Betsy Hotel stand apart from the party palaces on Ocean Drive. Dubbed “a destination with purpose,” The Betsy beckons with more than sparkling pools, elevated food, and stylish rooms. Its essence is driven by thoughtfully curated art collections, nightly music, culture-driven community gatherings, and a deep affection for poetry and literature. Below are four can’t-miss touchpoints that are perfect reasons to visit this cultural gem. (thebetsyhotel.com)

In the 1960s, she launched fashion house Biba, a favorite of celebrities and fashion upstarts (Anna Wintour was an intern). She designed hotel interiors for South Beach’s art deco revival, plus several Caribbean properties for hotelier Chris Blackwell. And she created a body of fashionfocused photography of dancers, models, and notables wearing her clothes. A collection of these images, curated by co-owner Lesley Goldwasser, hangs at LT Steak & Seafood at The Betsy. Don’t be surprised if, while looking at one of her photos, you spy Hulanicki herself. She resides blocks away from the hotel and visits often.

IT’S LIT The Betsy’s owners, the Plutzik family, have literature in their DNA. The late poet and Pulitzer Prize finalist Hyam Plutzik was the inspiration for both a robust library containing rare and firstedition volumes and an extensive poetry collection, and The Writer’s Room—the latter is a studio space where artists-inresidence, selected via a competitive application process, may stay and write. The room is tiny but highly functional, and it contains Hyam Plutzik’s own desk for maximum creative vibes. Visiting writers host salons to discuss their work with the community, so be on the lookout for these regularly scheduled events.

SOULFUL SOUNDS Every night, The Betsy’s lobby bar gets supercharged with the energy of live jazz and Latin rhythms by Miami musicians like Tal Cohen, Wilkie Ferguson, and Beau Cornelius. In addition, there are regularly scheduled musical events under the banner “Zen and the Art of,” which introduce Betsy patrons to a variety of art forms. Recent programs have included zarzuela, faith-based music, and contemporary classical piano. In July and August, expect nightly performances and pop-ups by the Miami Classical Music Festival June 28 to July 18.

Tangerine DREAM

Lamborghini’s new fast and furious Huracán EVO RWD Spyder is an assault on the senses By Howard Walker We all know about endorphins, the spunky polypeptides produced by the body to stimulate feelings of immense pleasure. Eating chocolate and drinking wine are great endorphin releasers, but there’s another source of endorphin production that’s far more effective than any Godiva or Pinot Noir. Let me introduce you to the newest offering from Lamborghini, the tangerine dream machine known as the Huracán EVO RWD Spyder. The endorphins this 602-horsepower, V-10 engined beauty delivers are up there with hearing Pavarotti hit the high notes of “Nessun Dorma” or receiving a basket of kittens to cuddle. 56

There aren’t enough superlatives in Webster’s to adequately describe the way this hurricane-force machine can slingshot itself off the line, dragster-style. Nothing prepares you for the ensuing mayhem as this rocket ship spins its rear wheels like a Fourth of July pinwheel, lunging at the horizon in a haze of flambéed rubber. I’ve driven plenty of superfast cars; this one scared the snot out of me. Time, perhaps, for CliffsNotes on the raging bull from Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. Introduced in 2014, the Huracán replaced the much-loved Gallardo as the first rung on the ladder of Lamborghini ownership. Over the

years it evolved first into the Huracán Performante, then the EVO. But it always stuck with all-wheel drive to help wrangle all that power—and keep drivers out of the hedgerows. For purists, having all-wheel drive has been a bone of contention. They argue that it somehow desensitized the car, taking away the raw, driverfocused, laser-precise responses. Last year, however, the wraps came off the Huracán EVO RWD, with that honking mid-mounted 5.2-liter V-10 spinning just the rear rims. More nimble and tailhappy, it instantly became the most fun-driving old-school Lambo money could buy. And speaking of lira, the base price of the Florida-orange Spyder convertible is $229,428, around $15,000 more than the $214,366 Coupe version. Must-have add-on options easily take the sticker north of $250,000. Toggle a switch and that tight-fitting canvas roof powers back, disappearing beneath a hard cover in a mere 17 seconds and at speeds up to 31 mph. Top down, the Huracán makes a terrific convertible, with hardly any wind

buffeting, even at close to triple-digit velocities. Having the top dropped is all the better for inhaling a manic Guns N’ Roses soundtrack. Inside, you sit in hip-hugging carbon fiber–shelled seats, gripping a wheel that looks straight out of a race car. The theater that goes into operating this orange projectile is so very Italian—flick up a big red flap to hit the start button, pull back on an oversized lever to engage reverse, and shift gears with paddle shifters the size of elephant ears; Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick would feel right at home. This newest Huracán is a pure and passionate assault on the senses. In today’s hyper-car world, 0-to-60 in 3.3 seconds is nothing special: There are kid-toting Teslas that get there in 2.4, as will the all-wheel-drive Huracán EVO. But the fury of the RWD’s acceleration, the brutal 8,000-rpm upshifts, and that truly spine-tingling, hairs-on-the-back-of-your-neck-raising soundtrack makes it feel like the Starship Enterprise hitting warp speed.

The Return of PILAR

Ernest Hemingway’s LEGENDARY fishing boat has been reborn in the new Wheeler 38 By Howard Walker

W

es Wheeler remembers the call. It was Andy Garcia on the phone. The Untouchables star was making a movie about Ernest Hemingway and his longtime fishing captain, Gregorio Fuentes. Garcia needed to find a replica of Papa Hemingway’s beloved boat, Pilar, and was looking for suggestions. Wheeler is the great-grandson of the Wheeler Shipyard founder. Back in 1934, Hemingway took delivery of a fresh Wheeler 38 Playmate from the Brooklyn yard, paying the then-princely sum of $7,495 for the black-hulled beauty. Christening it Pilar, the nickname of his second wife, Pauline, Hemingway owned the boat for 30 years, chasing big-game fish around the Caribbean and writing most of The Old Man and the Sea from its cockpit while docked in Havana. Alas, nothing came of the movie, which was to have starred Anthony Hopkins as

58

Hemingway, with Garcia playing Fuentes. But it did rekindle a dream for Wes Wheeler. “I decided I wanted to bring Pilar back to life and build a brand-new version using the newest technologies,” he tells me during this year’s Palm Beach International Boat Show. Doing so would be a challenge. His greatgrandfather’s company had shuttered in 1965 after building more than 3,500 boats. But Wheeler knew every inch of Pilar after a visit to Havana with Hemingway’s niece, Hilary Hemingway, in 2012. She had co-written the Hemingway & Fuentes movie script with Garcia and had asked Wheeler to fly down and measure the original Pilar in case a movie replica had to be built. Fast-forward to March of this year and Wheeler is giving me a tour of his brand-new Wheeler 38, which is rocking gently at the dock. It’s hull #1, but he hopes to build more for any classic-

boat enthusiasts with around $1.3 million to spare. Legend, as the new boat is called, is a body-double of Hemingway’s beloved fishing boat; everything above the waterline is a perfect copy, based on Wheeler’s exacting measurements from the Cuba trip and historic documents kept by his great-grandfather. Below the waterline, however, her hull has been modified to run fast, at speeds up to 34 mph—more than twice what Pilar could achieve—and include the kind of features Papa Hemingway could only dream about. In place of a single 70-horsepower Chrysler gas motor, Legend features twin 370-hp Yanmar diesels, with a super-quiet Cummins Onan generator to run the air conditioning and a SeaKeeper gyro stabilizer to tame any rock and roll. Rather than investing in a new boatyard, Wheeler turned to the wooden boat artisans at

Brooklin Boat Yard in Brooklin, Maine. They crafted the new hull from cold-molded epoxy and fitted it out using Douglas fir, rich African mahogany, and teak. As in Pilar, the huge cockpit is perfect for reeling in fighting tuna and swordfish, while the long hardtop does a good job of providing shade from the sun. Two large cockpit sofas make an ideal place to enjoy a refreshing Cuba libre when happy hour hits. Wheeler is especially proud of the way the

helm station keeps modern technology hidden away to retain the traditional look and feel of Hemingway’s original. To fire up the twin diesels, you need to slide open a small varnished mahogany panel; to program the autopilot and speed and depth read-outs, you lift another mirror-varnished panel. Another highlight is Legend’s classic stainless-steel steering wheel: Brooklin Boat Yard tracked down a 1934 original, digitized it, and had a new one cast.

Down below, the layout has changed dramatically from Hemingway’s bunk beds and spartan feel; comfort wasn’t too high on Papa’s priority list. Forward, there’s now a comfy master cabin with a double bed and a convertible dinette in the saloon, along with two custom leather chairs and a well equipped galley and head. “It really has been an exciting and rewarding project to recreate what is often described as the most famous fishing boat in the world,” says Wheeler. “My next dream, naturally, would be to take her down to Cuba and relive a few of Hemingway’s adventures.” «

Nearly 15 years later, owners James and Julie Petrakis continue to grow their gastropub into one of the best restaurants in the South. The addition of former Dovecote chef-owner Clay Miller as chef de cuisine only solidified the Pig’s rep as the place to indulge in elevated pub fare with a Southern twang (mulard duck ham, lamb saddle, or pork burnt ends, anyone?). On tap are small-batch craft beers produced by the Ravenous Pig Brewing Co., which is situated next to the restaurant’s newly constructed family-friendly beer garden.

The stunning artistry of the seasonally driven dishes is worth the price tag ($150 for a 15-course omakase and $185 for the 20-course), be it lobster nigiri with brown butter miso or a decadent ending of “mat-cho” featuring a delicate masterwork of matcha, chocolate, and burnt marshmallow.

WHERE TO STAY

The boutique Hotel Haya (hotelhaya.com) embodies the best of new and old Ybor. The boutique property, opened last fall, spans two historic buildings: one that formerly housed Tampa’s oldest restaurant and another believed to have been a haunt of Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders. Tampa-based Alfonso Architects is responsible for the mid-century-meetsglobal-casita decor. Throughout, you’ll spot creations by local makers, including cigars by J.C. Newman Cigars (a nod to Ybor’s tobacco-steeped past) and glass works by artists from the Morean Art Center, the most impressive of which is a chandelier in flagship restaurant Flor Fina. Helmed by executive chef Douglas

Rodriguez—lauded as the godfather of nuevo Latino cuisine—Flor Fina is the heart of Hotel Haya. A Top Chef Masters alum, Rodriguez marries Gulf Coast bounty with influences from Latin America, the Mediterranean, and Cuba. Ceviche is a top draw, so sample creative concoctions like the Amarillo Mixto with octopus, shrimp, calamari, passion fruit pulp, and blue sweet potato; desserts like the quatro leches (sponge cake, dulce de leche, and toffee brittle) tell the sweeter side of Ybor’s culinary story.

Walk through downtown to historic Burns Court— where 1920s bungalows dot the landscape—to Owen’s Fish Camp (owensfishcamp.com). Ask for a table under the light-strung banyan tree, a gift from Thomas Edison to the restaurant’s original owner. While you wait (they don’t take reservations), snap an Insta-worthy selfie on the nearby tire swing. Menuwise, don’t miss the local Cedar Key clams bathed in a chorizo and saffron-scented broth or the Creole fish gumbo with crawfish tails. Shrimp and grits and the Low-Country boil are staples here, but the oysters (grilled or raw) are the main attraction. Save room for the fried black cherry pie à la mode; it’s semi-legendary for a reason. 68

On Longboat Key, Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant and Pub (marvistadining.com) invites you to relax under a tangle of buttonwood trees laden with bistro lights and staghorn ferns. The patio gives way to a sandy beach and the quiet waters of Sarasota Bay. Come by car or by boat—there are 14 slips to welcome dock-anddiners—and order the Bud & Old Bay Bowl, composed of Gulf shrimp sautéed in Budweiser, Old Bay seasoning, and garlic butter. The shrimp are served with their heads on, but that’s a sure sign of just how fresh they are. It’s the perfect dish to share with a cocktail in hand while taking in soothing water views alongside a roaring firepit.

See the 1991 film City Slickers before visiting this state park, an 1876 cow camp where cowboy heritage remains alive and kicking. Perhaps the most entertaining aspect is the living history reenactment each weekend, which transports visitors to a time when a “cow hunter’s” life was spent herding cattle between Florida’s cow camps and downtime was spent on hard ground beside a campfire. Payment in Spanish gold doubloons was a decent enough incentive, say the actor cowboys, but probably few of us city slickers would last a day.

Hundreds of manatees call this large St. Johns River spring home, and although swimming with them isn’t permitted, it’s nearly impossible not to encounter one of these gentle sea cows: the cheeky fellas take great delight in swimming alongside humans and partaking in aquatic adventure. Snorkel through crystal-clear waters, float with an inner tube (rentals available) down Blue Spring boil’s natural lazy river, or launch a kayak for a zen-like wander through lush woodland areas surrounding the spring. Possibly as famous as the manatees are the cavern and cave diving opportunities–restricted to certified cave divers–and scuba diving, which is allowed only with a buddy. Visitors say the hidden and mysterious underwater holes lead to otherworldly places and swear it is one of the best places in Florida to scuba dive. Don’t miss a visit to the Thursby house, the well preserved nineteenth-century home of European settler Louis Thursby, who hoped to strike it rich with an orange grove and a steamship pier.

Visitors can also kiteboard or paddleboard on the Atlantic, kayak through Curry Hammock’s picturesque waterways, hike through miles of nature trails, and fish for tarpon, snook, redfish, and mangrove snapper on the shoreline.

A picturesque drive south toward Key West will yield what is arguably one of Florida’s most famous snorkel spots—John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo. Adjacent to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the country’s first undersea park, it’s considered an underwater Grand Canyon, offering a rare glimpse into colorful coral formations. The outside world is left behind when exploring delicate ecosystems via glass-bottom boat, kayak, canoe, or scuba diving here. Thick mangroves provide shelter for inexperienced snorkelers, and these quiet respites sometimes yield close encounters with curious manatees, sea turtles, and dolphins. A short hike through the park exposes an ancient artesian well hidden within mangrove swamps, while walking trails through tropical hammocks lead to picnicking, bird-watching, and fishing spots. Thirty-nine RV sites are available, all dog-friendly with electric hookups and a long list of amenities, from barbecue grills to interpretive programs and handicap accessibility.

One of the country’s most famous national parks is at Florida’s southern end, where a million and a half acres of swamps, subtropical jungles, and sawgrass marshes beckon visitors to commune with nature. Fourteen endangered species reside here, meaning you’re immersed in untamed beauty. Yet the adventures are easily and comfortably navigable with plenty of modern conveniences. Choose relaxation or adventure with hiking and biking trails, kayak and canoe rentals, exotic wildlife and bird-watching perches, and world-class fishing. Several campgrounds abound, yet the Flamingo Campground is quickly rising to visitor “favorite” status for its seemingly infinite Florida Bay views, refreshing year-round breeze, and camping options. The newest—and only “glamping” alternative on the list—is Flamingo’s safari-style Eco Tents. Slightly elevated off the ground, these fully furnished tents have electricity plus a dresser, bookshelf, queen or two full-sized beds, sheets, removable bug-protection screen, and private outdoor patio seating area. Showers, a community grill, and a marina store are nearby for all the essentials. RV camping is just next door with 65 spots, many with electrical hookups. Don’t feel landlocked, though. Boat options are abundant with single and double kayaks and canoes for rent, as well as motorized skiffs and pontoons. For another adventurous overnight option, a limited number of Flamingo Adventures Houseboats are available–complete with A/C while docked. Outfitted with two bedrooms, a living room, bathroom, galley, gas oven/range, and fully stocked kitchen, these floating homes sleep up to four adults and two kids, the ideal family getaway or romantic retreat.

TIBET’S TRADITION KEEPERS LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHER JUAN LAMARCA ILLUMINATES A CULTURE IN EXILE WITH HIS “PORTRAITS OF TIBETANS” SERIES

In February 2020, just before the world went into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, South Florida–based photographer Juan Lamarca traveled to India’s West Bengal state to document a people and culture in exile. He spent nearly three weeks at the Tibetan Refugee Self-Help Center in Darjeeling, creating portraits of Tibetans—young and old— who are striving to preserve their way of life and their Buddhist religion. This center was founded in October 1959 after the Dalai Lama was

088_PICTORIAL_0721.indd 89

forced to escape Tibet amid deadly tension with the Chinese government. Today roughly 6 million Tibetans remain in Tibet, while more than 100,000 are in exile. Those living and working at the Darjeeling Self-Help Center represent multiple generations, and many have never stepped foot inside Tibet. “They say they are Tibetans, they speak Tibetan, and they culturally identify with Tibet, but they’ve never been there,” explains Lamarca.

Lamarca, known locally for his work with the polo and equestrian community in Wellington, has long been drawn to the immigrant and refugee experience. Originally from Argentina, he relocated to the United States 12 years ago. “At some point I realized that all I had left since I left my country was the first film camera I bought and a pair of shoes my grandmother gave me,” he says. “My idea initially was to do portraits of people who are forced to leave their country and what it is they’re holding onto and the emotional value [behind it].” After meeting someone from West Bengal and hearing more about Tibetans living in exile, Lamarca connected with the plight of these refugees and felt compelled to travel halfway around the world to photograph them. During his visit,

Lamarca was able to commune with this group—which he describes as immensely kind—as they went about their daily lives and celebrated the Tibetan New Year. He watched craftsmen produce traditional items such as carpets, wood-carved furnishings, and prayer wheels. He photographed elders, teens, and children in their traditional New Year garb. He saw kids playing between their studies at the Central School for Tibetans, where they learn about their vibrant cultural heritage. Throughout it all, Lamarca came away with a deep reverence for their open, loving ways and their peaceful happiness—and he hopes viewers feel this in his images. “They’re welcoming and kind, but they also impose respect,” he says. “Conditions of life are very low in terms of monetary help or any kind of comfort, but then spiritually, they are so rich.” —Mary Murray

For his part, Zapil aims to interpret those products through the prism of his Guatemalan heritage, as seen in creations such as Simply Shrimp, which his father used to cook for him. “It’s so simple, made with just Oishii shrimp—the best and most sustainable you can buy—celery, garlic, pink salt, and fresh lime juice, but it bursts with flavor and reminds me of my childhood,” he says. While Fern Street’s offerings are constantly changing, diners can expect a mix of charcuterie, salads, pastas, prime meats, and sustainable seafood, all complemented by an extensive wine list highlighting small producers. From the “Market” section of the menu, opt for the vegan maitake mushroom pasta or the tempura broccolini. The “Sea” and “Pasture” categories feature many items cooked in a wood-fire oven imported from Modena, Italy. If available, try the vintage (i.e., five-year-old) grass-fed hanger steak with chimichurri and arborio rice.

In addition to its dinner program, Fern Street recently introduced Lunch Break, a casual Latin street food concept hosted in a food truck in the restaurant’s outdoor mural garden. Customers can also join Fern Street’s Food Club, which provides access to specialty items—think: dry-aged beef and exotic meats—that must be reserved with 24 hours’ notice.

“My grandmother used to tell me stories about the elegant parties she attended years ago,” says Ann DesRuisseaux, owner of Le Bar in Palm Beach. “I dreamed about it for years, and I wanted a place where everyone would feel comfortable enough to dance or sing along at the piano.” Open since early December, Le Bar is a bar à vin in the European tradition. The space is framed by Baccarat chandeliers, gilt-edged mirrors, vintage pictures of island life, a long mahogany bar—and, of course, a white baby grand. Decor is just a small part of the equation, even though DesRuisseaux decorated the former bank building herself. There’s voluptuous food (deviled eggs topped with caviar, black truffle flatbread) and 45 wines by the glass, along with a list of bottles not readily available elsewhere and a resident sommelier. If you’re not an oenophile, you can indulge in one of the innovative craft cocktails developed by a barman who used to be a biologist in Argentina. Don’t miss the Invisible Margarita and the Green Goddess. DesRuisseaux, an attorney, jokes that “all lawyers who pass the bar eventually feel they need to own a bar.” For her, the nostalgia of the setting is mixed with a thread of practicality. “As I got older, I wanted to eat lighter,” she admits. “I didn’t necessarily want a three- or fourcourse meal. An evening of small plates shared with friends was perfect.” Le Bar is licensed for retail sales as well as consumption on the premises, and DesRuisseaux is developing new ways to serve clientele. Customers can sit at the bar and peruse the wine list while they grab a glass of Cristal 2007 or Dom Pérignon 2009, preserved by the Perlage system. When they’ve made their selections, the bottles can be delivered to their home. “It’s a very different experience than walking through a liquor store with a cart,” DesRuisseaux notes.

In the 30 years since Miami entrepreneur Mario Laufer debuted this concept in an Alton Road gas station, his philosophy has remained simple: offer nutritious, highquality ingredients in a relaxed setting. The extensive menu makes it possible to eat your way through the day at Carrot Express.

Welcome to July, the month in which we celebrate freedom, independence, our country, and our culture. Whether you’re commemorating with a day at the beach, a backyard barbecue, or a park picnic, you’ll want to toast the season with this cooling “poptail.” The Pimm’s Cup, typically made with cucumbers, oranges, and/or strawberries, is a quintessential summer libation: easy drinking, low-proof, and incredibly refreshing. It’s also ripe for variations. Try adding seasonal fruit, creating a large batch for entertaining, or freezing them for a refreshing treat. Here, I’ve outlined the recipe for the original Pimm’s Cup, followed by the poptail version from my new cocktail book LowProof Happy Hour (Countryman Press, 2021). With the traditional base of Pimm’s, lemon, and ginger flavors, this frozen sip gets an additional kick from the unexpected crimson peppercorn syrup. Adorn your cup with fresh berries, citrus, green apple, borage, or mint and cucumber. It should look like a veritable summer-fruit salad! —Jules Aron

Wine-Country Crawl

This summer, EXPLORE lesser-known wine regions within America’s borders

By Mark Spivak

F

or wine lovers yearning to get back on the vineyard trail this summer, there’s bad news and good news: Many European countries may not be accepting visitors, but emerging wine regions in our own country still await discovery. If you’re looking to explore beyond the usual suspects in California, Oregon, and Washington State, consider these lesser-known areas: Finger Lakes, New York State: The pioneer of the region was Dr. Konstantin Frank, who emigrated from the Soviet Union in the early 1950s and found the climate to be perfect for Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Pinot Gris. Today there are over 130 wineries in the area concentrated around Lake Ontario as well as Cayuga, Seneca, Keuka, and Canandaigua Lakes. A good place to start is Dr. Frank’s winery in Hammondsport, which remains family-run. Other top destinations include the Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard, known for top Rieslings, as well as Hearts and Hands, Heron Hill, Lamoreaux Landing, Glenora Wine Cellars, and Wagner Vineyards. (fingerlakeswinecountry.com)

Texas Hill Country: Ranked as the fifth-largest wine-producing state, Texas has attracted the attention of serious oenophiles in recent years. The Texas Hill Country AVA has nearly 100 wineries clustered around Fredericksburg. Cabernet and Tempranillo are popular, along with hybrids such as Black Spanish and Blanc du Bois. Must-see wineries include Becker Vineyards, a pioneer in the region since 1995 and the first producer to cultivate Viognier; Fall Creek Vineyard, where Susan and Ed Auler have been producing Bordeaux and Rhône-style blends since 1975; Fredericksburg Winery, where the Switzer family makes everything from white and red table wine to port and sherry; and mavericks such as Spicewood, Crowson, and Bending Branch. (texaswinetrail.com) Virginia: In the Colonial era, settlers in Virginia were required by law to plant vineyards; although it’s now optional, there are nearly 300 wineries scattered throughout 10 distinct regions and eight recognized AVAs to show for it. The largest is the 227-acre Trump Winery (the former Kluge Estate) on the Monticello Wine Trail, purchased by the former president in

Shenandoah Vineyards near Edinburg, the state’s second-oldest winery, is a good place to start; nearby destinations include Cave Ridge Vineyard, Wolf Gap, and the Winery at Kindred Pointe. Try to plan your visit for the fall, when flaming leaves highlight Skyline Drive.

The best-known is the Biltmore Winery, located outside of Asheville on George Vanderbilt’s 8,000-acre estate, with dozens of bottlings ranging from Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec to Riesling, white Rhône varieties, and sparkling wine. Other must-see destinations include Childress Vineyards in Lexington, Raffaldini Vineyards in Ronda, and Banner Elk Winery & Villa and Grandfather Vineyard & Winery, both in Banner Elk. (ncwine.org) Long Island: The North Fork’s maritime climate is perfect for Bordeaux grape varieties, and the region is now the third-largest producer of wine grapes in the country (after California and Washington State). Pioneers include Paumanok Vineyards, known for their award-winning Chenin Blanc; Bedell Cellars, famous for their benchmark Bedell Musée, a Bordeaux-style blend; and Lenz Winery, founded in 1978 and specializing in Merlot.

HOME By Liza Grant Smith

Cosmopolitan Designer Lorraine Rogers Bolton’s trip to the Milan Furniture Fair, Salone del Mobile, provided the inspiration for many of the design concepts in this Palm Beach Gardens full renovation. To breathe life into the client’s request for an alluring “London meets Hollywood” vibe, Bolton’s team at Rogers Design Group delivered innovative design choices and fine furnishings to convert the Mediterranean home into a gorgeous transitional/contemporary abode. The lofty ceilings of the immense dining room meant Bolton had to consider how each of the architectural details and furniture pieces she chose would impact proportion and play off one another. Side panel drapes run the length of the tall windows, while expansive mirror panels framed by backlit charcoal wood provide an unexpected moment of glam; Bolton also incorporated a 25-foot textural cream stone feature wall around the fireplace, which is framed in a pewter mantlepiece. The tour de force, however, hangs above the rectangular charcoal wood dining table. “The jewel of this space is the Ochre crystal fixture that not only helped us bring an intimate height to the space, but also divided the dining area from the living area in this room of generous proportions,” explains Bolton. “This elegant fixture features over 50 handmade crystal droplets of light. It’s a magnificent detail that brings an additional bit of elegance to the space.” (rogersdesign.com)

Let contemporary art be your muse to CREATE A SPACE with visual intrigue and dynamic moments WORK OF ART Karen Press, lead designer of Panache Designs, wanted this previously all-white home to reflect her client’s colorful artistic taste with vibrant pops and eye-catching pieces. “In consideration of the client’s love of red, black, and white, I utilized jewel-toned custom pillows to accent the room along with a Nourison prismatic area rug that dances with color,” says Press. “A massive customdesigned Riznik backlit Buddha greets guests in the foyer while the wall of the staircase landing is adorned with a magnificent 12-foot collection of Christopher Guy mirrors. Each one of these elements brilliantly tied the room together with the existing chandelier.” Boca Raton (panachedesignsfl.com)

BALANCE By Liza Grant Smith

Stick With It Unlike their traditional popsicle counterparts, paletas—which originated in Mexico but have inspired a worldwide revolution— are made from whole ingredients like fruit, herbs, and spices. As a result, these sweet treats (whose name roughly translates to “little stick”) don’t require a break from healthy-eating aspirations. Ready to savor? Check out these local spots for re-interpreted pops: CIELITO ARTISAN POPS, BOCA RATON, CIELITOARTISANPOPS.COM Sindy Posso, who grew up in a family of bakers, combined her artistic eye and love of cooking to create more than 46 creative paleta flavors, offered weekly at Cielito. All of her pops are made from seasonal fruit cut and peeled in-house every day. Single popsicles or boxes of 6 or 12 pops can be ordered in store or online for curbside pickup or local delivery. Flavor Faves: The tart and intense hibiscus flower with dragon fruit or the spicy pineapple jalapeño. (continued on next page)

MORELIA GOURMET PALETAS

Stick With It

Unlike the classic popsicle, Mexican paletas are made from whole ingredients—and thus, arguably, a healthy take on a sweet treat.

CONT.

MORELIA GOURMET PALETAS, BOCA RATON, PALETASMORELIA.COM Two longtime friends fell in love with paletas and began experimenting with recipes; after training in Argentina, Peru, and Brazil, and once their toughest tastetesters—their children—approved, the first Morelia location opened in Coral Gables in 2016. There are now 17 locations spread across South Florida, the Dominican Republic, and Monterrey, Mexico. Flavor Faves: The mocktail-reminiscent pineapple mint or the summer-apropos strawberry.

ROSA ICE CREAM, JUPITER, FACEBOOK.COM/ROSAICECREAMJUPITER The owners of Rosa Ice Cream have collaborated with a laundry list of prestigious chefs around the world in their 35 years working with frozen treats. Their 100% natural fruit popsicles are handmade and free of preservatives, artificial colors, and added sugar. Flavor Faves: The swoon-worthy passion fruit or the spirited mango chile.

FOOD FUEL

Eating for ENERGY When we feel an energy crash, what’s really going on? When you feel a drop in energy, that’s your blood sugar going down. Many people will eat healthy or virtuously at the beginning of the day, but because they haven’t fueled their body adequately, they can feel tired or lethargic—otherwise known as the mid-afternoon slump—later in the day. Which foods surprisingly don’t deliver an energy boost? I often see individuals eating a protein bar before or during workouts; protein is great for building muscle and tissue repair, but it’s a lousy energy source. Which foods do provide fuel? Carbohydrates provide good energy; they’re our body’s primary source of fuel. For long-lasting energy, it’s important to have carbohydrates that have fiber, preferably at least 3 grams per serving. Your body takes a long time to break down the fiber, which can thus supply a longer energy source. Good energy foods include whole grains and fruits; fruit juices or dried fruits have more sugars and can be used for a quick energy boost.

JOSE AND TERESA PHOTOGRAPHY

Looking for a little pep in your step—without needing an infusion of caffeine? Palm Beach Gardens-based dietician and nutritionist Sandy Livingston speaks to healthy ways to get up and go. (palmbeachnutritionist.com)

For those hoping to mix up a slump solution in their own kitchen, Lake Clarke Shores blogger Teresa Gonzalez shares her favorite energy ball recipe: “I love these energy balls because they don’t involve any cooking, have wholesome and healthy ingredients, and are a cinch to grab and eat on the go, thwarting any temptations to reach for unhealthy and unsatiating snacks,” she says. “They’re the perfect fuel, especially when I’m marathon-training.” (floridagirlcooks.com)

Ingredients 1 1/2 cups rolled oats 1/2 cup vanilla whey protein powder (or vegan protein) 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1 tbsp. chia seeds 1 tbsp. flax seeds 1/2 cup smooth natural almond butter (or any nut butter) 1 tbsp. raw honey 1 tsp. vanilla extract 1/3 cup chocolate chips, raisins, or preferred add-in 2-4 tbsp. liquid (unsweetened almond, coconut, or soy milk) 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut Instructions Add oats, protein powder, cinnamon, chia, and flax seeds to a large bowl. Add almond butter, honey, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine. Add chocolate chips; mixture should be slightly sticky but still crumbly. Slowly add milk, using hands to combine until it forms a sticky ball. If mixture is too dry, add more milk, but not so much that it won’t hold shape. Use hands to roll into balls, then coat in coconut flakes. Place on parchment paper, then set in fridge for at least 30 minutes; store in fridge until ready to eat.

WARM-UP

Vacation SALVATION

WALK THE TALK Walking may not have the in-your-face pizazz of some of the trendier forms of exercise, but it has long been a fitness powerhouse. In fact, walking is one of the single most important things we can do for our health. But perhaps its greatest selling point is the ease with which it can be done: All you need is 30 minutes and a pair of comfortable shoes. That may be why the American Heart Association reports that walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. With walking’s many benefits in mind, Walk With a Doc (walkwithadoc.org) was launched in 2005 by an Ohio cardiologist who felt he wasn’t effecting sufficient behavioral change in the clinical setting. He invited his patients on a weekly walk in a local park and was blown away by the response; his idea soon inspired doctors around the world to organize events during which they give brief presentations on a health topic, then lead participants on a walk at their own pace. Upon discovering the program, South Florida doctor Jennifer Davis (healthyl ivingwithdrjenn.com) immediately wanted to get involved. She now leads walks on the first and third Saturday mornings of each month at Anchor Park in Delray Beach. “I think this is a powerful tool to improve the health of the community,” she shares. “It empowers individuals to improve their health.”

WALK IT OUT A DAILY 30-MINUTE WALK CAN:

• Lower the risk of heart-related conditions like high blood pressure and high cholesterol as much as running does, according to the American Heart Association. • Boost brain power; a New Mexico Highlands University study showed that your foot’s impact sends pressure waves through arteries, increasing blood supply to your brain.

• Lower blood sugar and overall diabetes risk, per the American Diabetes Association. • Inspire creativity; a Stanford University study found that walking upped creative output by an average of 60 percent. • Delay development of varicose veins (or ease swelling and restlessness in your legs if you already have them), according to the Cleveland Clinic. • Burn 100 to 200 calories, depending on your pace.

PURE PASSION Two local friends put their heads together to form the Ona Organics line of herbalist-formulated products, which feature natural elements blended for maximum effectiveness and scents chosen to evoke certain emotions. Elizabeth Dorow is a certified herbalist whose passion for moringa seed oil—believed to neutralize the effects of toxins and pollutants, slow premature aging, and soothe inflammation—led her to create a product to restore and enhance the natural radiance and vitality of skin; Amanda Arapoglou is a devotee of breath meditation and a mom who wanted to ensure their product created moments of mindfulness. Follow each product’s recommended ritual—its meditative instructions for use—to achieve holistic results. (onaorganics.com)

Now that summer getaways are a go again, the last thing you want is compromised health keeping you from them. Before you board the plane or load the car, arm yourself with these wellness-assuring items.

STARLIT SHAKESPEARE

After navigating the virtual frontier, the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival will return to stage two of the Bard’s beloved comedies for audiences to revel in under the stars. In partnership with Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation, Shakespeare by the Sea’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will take place July 8-11 and 15-18 at the Seabreeze Amphitheater in Jupiter’s Carlin Park. The merriment will continue when the festival partners with the Town of Royal Palm Beach Parks and Recreation to host Shakespeare Under the Palms’ inaugural staging of Twelfth Night, August 1922 and 26-29 at the Commons Park Amphitheater, an apropos setting for a tale about shipwrecked siblings finding their way back to each other. Bardolators are encouraged to bring their own beach chairs, blankets, and picnic setups (or moola for food trucks) to best enjoy the free evening performances. (pbshakespeare.org)

Art on the MOVE

The Armory Art Center has already had a busy summer bringing art to the people, but it’s also mixing things up by bringing people to the art. The West Palm Beach venue will host its final Armory Art on the Go with van Gogh “field trip” down to the “Beyond van Gogh” exhibit at Miami’s Ice Palace Studios on July 7. Day trippers will be shuttled down to the Magic City via luxury coach, where immersion into Vincent van Gogh’s best work awaits. Guests can wander freely among more than 300 of the Post-Impressionist’s masterpieces, including The Starry Night, Sunflowers, and Café Terrace at Night, all free from the confines of their frames. Tickets for the trip cost $99. For aficionados seeking art closer to home, the Armory’s “Art of the Phoenix” exhibition is showcasing inspired student works in the East Gallery through July 23. The center’s Art of the Phoenix program was designed in partnership with the Human Trafficking Coalition of the Palm Beaches to offer a safe space for individuals healing from trauma. For those feeling a sense of summer nostalgia, stop by August 6-14 to check out “Goodbye Summer,” the Armory’s ode to the fleeting days of the season. All works were created by student artists in this year’s Summer Art Experience at the center. (armoryart.org)
