For a short (supposed to be) trip to the "Laid Back Rally" and back to our home here in Jax, Fl. Jut got back Sunday 1/20. We had moved from the rally to about 67 miles east to West Palm Beach to the Lion Safari KOA RV park. Spent a week there sight seeing the area. After almost 55 years in Florida the closest I had been to the "GOLD COAST" is passing thru on I-95. I can see now how it got the name "GOLD COAST" (PALM BEACH). There are more Mercedes, Lamborghini's, Bentleys Jaguars in the Palm Beach area than there are Honda Civics in any other city!!!! We drove A1A
to view the area. Tried to rub elbows with D.Trump while sight seeing but needless to say nothing ($$$$$) rubbed off. Oh Well, maybe next time!
Ladies if you ever visit West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Lake Worth you have to get a listing of the women's consignment shops. Bargains that were purchased in NY, CONN, NJ, never worn, still had the tags, brought to the Palm Beach area, didn't match what was being worn in the area and then dumped. DW found a brand new $$$$ outfit still with tags for $18.00. Now is that a ladies bargain or what! Put this on your list for a stop!
Spent a week in the area. Visited the Flagler Museum on Palm Beach. What a magnificent gift to his wife for the Mrs. Flagler's birthday. All built with gilded gold, marble, granite, paintings in 18 months. The Flagler railroad is given credits for developing the tourist industry for Florida. Even a Over Seas railroad to Key West. It is a must to see such grandeur of its time. Seen my first PUBLIX GROCERY STORE with valet parking only!!!!!!!
Now where did I miss out on the $$$$$??????
We have to give credit to Bob and Cindy for our unusual trip. If it had not been for the "Laid Back Rally" I would have still been just doing the I-95 thing.
GLJURCZYK even my 12 year Appleton Rum didn't make me fit in
Arrived back In Jax Sunday to a cooler weather, spent all day Monday washing "ROCKY" on the outside. Spent 2 1/2 hour on the roof just cleaning it. The Pine pollen has began to fall here in Florida as it turns every thing yellow. First signs of spring and planning our next trip in April
to the Cherry Blossom festival.
For you snow bound FROGS that did not make it for what ever reason, I highly advise you to make the next one to Florida for the Sunshine Festival that runs from January 1 ST to December 31 ST or when Bob plans the next rally to Florida.
Now where is my schedule book and Rand McNally map, I have some planning to do.
