Lighthouse River Rendezvous Draws Support for the Light

J Local restaurants and photographers have lined up to be part of the perfect party in paradise and the “Must Attend” for your November social calendar in Jupiter! The Lighthouse River Rendezvous returns November 19, 2016, from 6-9 pm at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum.

Along with live music from the very popular jazz duet Davis & Dow, guests will dine on delicious hors d’oeuvres from Jupiter’s top restaurants. Joining the Rendezvous this year are Guanabanas, Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar, Rustic Inn, Old Florida Bar & Grill, Dune Dog, Giuseppe’s Italian Restaurant, Tabica Grill, and Corner Café. Attendees will savor favorite dishes and flavors under tent and sparkling lights along the beautiful waterfront. Guests will also be able to bid on some wonderful items donated generously by the community in a large silent auction all to support the Lighthouse & Museum.

Guests will take home their own copy of our Limited Edition 2017 Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Calendar being launched at the party! Our favorite Lighthouse Photographers of Social Media and the world-wide web join us to celebrate their art and wonder for our hometown’s favorite Light. They’ve each supported the fundraising efforts for the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum by permitting the use of their photos for this first-ever official calendar focusing on the historic 1860 Lighthouse.

February’s photo features frolicking on the water with Lisa Pinder’s charming snapshot of “Daisy” her duck about town. You can check out Daisy’s amazing adventures on Lisa’s Instagram feed daily_duck_tales.

July’s image called, “Softly Watching for You,” by professional photographer William A. Leonard, paints an early evening Lighthouse shot washed in deep purples and blues. “As a native Floridian, my grandfather took me here when I was seven and told me how he would picnic when coming this way to pay his taxes, taking the train before Flagler…it reminds me of my family’s past history,” reminisces Leonard.

September’s focus is a stunning photo from internationally published photographer Jeff Biege. “As far as that image goes I was at Suni Sands last April and the afternoon storms started to grown out of the northwest. I heard the first clap of thunder and walked out and sat on the dock. I set up my camera with the lighthouse in view and kept my finger on the shutter, you have to be fast as lightning:) Half of the sky was clear, so the rays of sun were still coming through on the water….I love it when the sky is black on one side and sunny on the other, makes for that beautiful turquoise water! I stayed out until the first rain drops and pieces of hail were hitting! Was such a beautiful storm to witness in old Jupiter!”

Among the other popular photographers featured in the stunning new calendar are Captain Kimo, Greg Panas, Patrick Campbell, Jack Hardway, Heidi Capko, Roger Kirby, and Matthew Lewis.
