Whether it be a Staycation or a Vacation; personally speaking I thinks its critical to spend time, bonding, maintaining unity and creating memories with my family. It seems like just yesterday, but I can vividly reminisce leaving Brooklyn as a young girl (me my mother and my siblings) to visit our family down South. The memories and the pictures we have of those trips are priceless, however I do believe we may have been some of the first to take a Staycation, before Staycationing became a “thing.” I inherited this wonderful tradition, and would later take my children on a summer vacation every year…and although my children are grown and have children and livelihoods of their own, we still make it a priority to block out time from our hectic lives, to kick back and enjoy one another’s company away from the distractions of our everyday lives, this time allows us to pause and realize the value and the appreciation we have for one another…all the fun, laughter and experiences are all simply benefits. So as I stated earlier whether it be a Staycation or a Vacation…do what works for you…just remember to breathe…enjoy life and one another.

I always look forward to our family times together, whether it be a stay-cation or a vacation, they’re always so much fun. This year with my granddaughter’s final cheerleading competition of the season in Tampa Florida, we took our vacation a little earlier than we normally do, and with West Palm Beach being only a jump, skip and a hop away…with all it has to offer (gorgeous weather, beautiful surroundings, out-door adventures, great dining, entertainment, and shopping) we were attracted to the idea that this would be the perfect destination for us to vacate to and indeed it was. Enjoy the many postcards of some of our sites and times along such an awesome trip.

Always time for a selfie!
Tropical beauty everywhere!
Geckos…very much in abundance in the area
Poolside libations…Mango Mojito
Okay now lets hit the beach!
My youngest adult child…still a kid at heart.
A visit to the humongous Shopping and Entertainment Complex was rather impressive
The Trolley was a nice amenity that I found quite convenient.
During a tropical down pour we enjoyed some time bowling at Revolutions
Not exactly making a fashion statement!
In route to The Fishing Marina, we noticed that Old Dixie Highway has been renamed in honor of our President…how cool is that!
Wow…Are we suppose to catch-all that!
Baby Girl is having second thoughts about the Fishing Excursion.
Our Seahorse Fishing Excursion was one for the books!
The Pelicans stay posted at the marina’s…as you can see we weren’t the only ones with plans to go fishing.
All lined up and ready to go!
Leading up to and during our excursion Captain Lee’s knowledge, patience and hospitality was awesome, which made for a great experience.
Who knew the littlest one on the boat…the very one who had doubts about the fishing excursion, would catch the biggest fish.

Spanning three blocks from Lake Worth to the Atlantic Ocean, lined with beautiful coconut palms and tabby concrete sidewalks, the affluent Worth Avenue; considered one of three of the “Most Ionic” streets in America, with over 200 influential merchants…a shopping experience like no other.
