My LOVE Of Palm Trees!
In case you are just tuning in...I won a trip to West Palm Beach Florida at the end of last year and we were supposed to go in March and we had a family and work emergency and we were so lucky that they worked with us to reschedule our trip! I will NEVER forget that! The folks at Garden of Life are truly amazing!
The theme to this post will be PALM TREES. There are few things I LOVE more than water falls and palm trees when it comes to landscape and/or nature...there certainly were palm trees at ever glance down there! There were also a lot of salamanders and lizards, too!
It only rained for a few hours the one evening while we were sleeping.
We stayed on the 6th floor of The Breakers which was part of the Flagler Club. It was like staying inside of an INN within the hotel. We had incredible breakfast, snacks, beverages, and other consumables throughout the day and evening as a part of our Flagler Club stay. More on that in future posts, tho.
One of my favorite parts of the Flagler Club Level was the outdoor terrace - again I will be blogging about that more in the near future.
This palm is located in the back of the hotel near the beach. You can see that they had coconuts still in the tree. They used the coconuts in their own drinks. One of my many personal goals was to have raw coconut water straight from the coconut which I was finally able to do the 2nd to the last day we were there. It was fabulous!
I loved the walk way where I was standing taking this photo. In the evenings it got breezy but the breeze was terrific. Most days and nights I wore dresses. I'm not a girlie-girl but I kind of liked it and the dresses I found to wear while we were there. I will share some of those pics at some point, too!
I'm so very grateful I was able to experience this trip. It was wonderful to get away for a while. More on this trip over at the TRAVEL BLOG we have set up, too!
