In my previous post I wrote why we picked Florida for our theme at our store Luna Love of Life Gifts.
Delray Beach is where all my pictures were taken for my store as of this writing. The majority of the pictures were about the ocean and landscapes of Delray Beach. It is so beautiful.
I travel to Delray Beach 3 to 4 times a year. I visit my best friend and her family. Every time I go I must see the ocean because it is so beautiful. I can spend hours just watching the waves coming to the shore. It is so serene and beautiful. Just imagine having a very stressful day at work, all you have to do is stop by the beach and watch the waves of the ocean washing against the shore and all that stress is gone. It is that beautiful and serene. Just the vastness of the ocean is awesome to behold. If you can’t tell, I really love the ocean and can’t wait to go back.
That is one reason why my store has several different items and different views of the ocean because I think it is so beautiful.
Downtown Delray Beach has lots of little shops that are very unique.
There are quite a few different restaurants for all types of taste. The awesome part of these restaurants, especially from a Midwesterner point of view, is the fact that you can eat outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. There are some restaurants that are located right across from the ocean. You can have an awesome lunch or dinner outside and view the ocean at the same time.
Delray Beach is a tourist town, it has many different events going all the time. During the winter months, the snowbirds, come to Florida. The snowbirds are all the people who come and live in Florida for the winter and go back home for the summer. In Delray Beach, the snowbirds come from New York and New Jersey. Most of Midwesterners go to the Gulf side.
According to VisitFlorida.com
“Delray Beach is located north of Boca Raton, this Palm Beach County city is a lively beach town full of galleries, shops and boutiques. Delray Beach also attracts visitors with the Delray Beach Tennis Center, the historic Colony Hotel and the annual Delray Beach Garlic Festival.”
According to “I Love Delray Beach” by Danila Dahl
“Delray Beach is Voted All-America City Award in 1993 and 2001. It is also Affectionately Known as Village by the Sea.”
I will be going back to Delray Beach on August 16th. I am counting the days. One thing that I haven’t seen yet is the sunset over the ocean. I’m going to see if my girlfriend can take me to the ocean to see the sunset. I will be taking lots of pictures.
Our baby girl Luna passed away on August 21, 2011. When Luna died her veterinarian had made an ink imprint of Luna’s paw. We are taking that paw print and getting a tattoo on our leg. She is our baby girl and missed very much.
