Anyway, here it is, one month closer to spring -- and while I will not gloat about being in South Florida, I will say it is delicious to be here. It's relaxing but a little too laid back for me to want to live here all year round. However, it is a splendid escape.
The first night we got here we had to go to the supermarket for some basic breakfast and lunch items. I LOVE Publix! Imagine my joy when we came upon this section of the shelves!! McVities digestives!!
We are almost out of the ones we brought home from London in October and they are impossible to find at home. We bought three boxes and will go back for more before we leave. Also, HP (imported),
and such wonders as Branston Pickle, Salad Cream, Ty-Phoo tea, and Vegemite (all of which which we left on the shelves). West Palm Beach is loaded with Canadian snowbirds, which is why I suspect there is so much British food on the shelves. Yay!
So, today is Saturday February 1st and we went out for our morning walk around the village. Halfway, we came upon a flea market in one of the parking lots and had some fun looking. I bought three books for $1 -- I find I am reading rather than sewing, despite all the fabrics I packed in my suitcase. Will I never learn?
This afternoon we headed into downtown and wandered down Clematis Street, which is a happening district with lots of bars, restaurants, hipsters, and a few galleries. We wandered into a pop-up exhibht and while honestly, most of the art was not especially good, this sculpture caught my eye.
Here was another amusing scupture. The porcelain brushes were sold individually or as an installation.
Went down to the pier on the waterway and watched the yachts and motorboats for a while. Across the water, Palm Beach.
This picture is fuzzy because the building was so far away. But I had to take it becuase I love the name of this bank. Fifth Third????
