Around The Grounds...
Today I thought I would share with you some of the random photos I took from around the grounds of The Breakers. I still have pics coming soon from our trip to the Garden of Life Headquarters as well as our downtown West Palm Beach Walk.
First up...I'm pretty sure that this is an old Fiat. I could be wrong I couldn't get much closer to it that day but I thought it wasn't something we saw every day and thought I would take a pic of it.
The Breakers utilizes reverse osmosis, an environmentally friendly alternative water source, to irrigate our golf course and landscaping.
I thought this was so cool! The Breakers is a very old and historic place and even they are able to take steps to help the environment so why can't everyone else? Every little bit or large step helps!
This duck is a Muscovy Duck.
He was pretty cool!
I wish I was able to see more wildlife while we were there - we did see more birds in the middle of flight - but we didn't see very many on the ground while we were there.
For those of you who are from or have visited Florida - what's your favorite bird of the region?
To the left of this hallway was one of the bars and restaurants called HMF. The name of the restaurant stood for Henry Morrison Flagler the owner of the original Breakers. Did you know that The Breakers Hotel Complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973? In 1973, the 105-acre listed area included 15 contributing buildings and one other contributing object.
