If you happened to be on Navarre Beach on July 16, you may have noticed a group of small, tan lifeguards pulling a CPR dummy out of the water.
The dummy’s name is Brady, after football star Tom Brady, and the small lifeguards are the Navarre Beach Junior lifeguards, doing their final test after an intense two-week program where they learned everything from CPR to surfing to oceanography.
This beautiful bloom that you may spot near the beach is a blanket flower, more formally known as the Gaillardia pulchella.
Butterflies and bees love them, and their root system is well-adapted to sandy soils.
An 11-year-old boy who was pulled out by a rip current Wednesday evening is safe thanks to a young surfer.
“The boy was out near the end of the Navarre Pier by the time the surfer reached him,” said Navarre Beach Fire Rescue Chief Danny Fureigh. “He definitely was in pretty bad shape, swallowed a bunch of water, vomited it all back up in our truck.”
