Let's get this show on the road!

Smile! Retirement is on the horizon!

Palm Beach, FL…home of sculptured hedges.

 

We took a day trip yesterday, to Palm Beach.   Not West Palm Beach or the generic Palm Beach County, but to the Town of Palm Beach.  This was for a luncheon at Testa’s Restaurant put on by the University of New England (my alma mater) on their swing through Florida that they do about every 2 years.  Paul and I had eaten at Testa’s in Bar Harbor, ME a couple of years ago and had wanted to try their Florida restaurant, so this was a good opportunity.  It was a nice luncheon, we talked about many aspects of the UNE campus that are being improved, students, financial aid and the opening of the new campus in Tangiers, Morocco.

After lunch Paul and I decided to take a drive around Palm Beach, to see how the other half lives!  We saw so many landscaping crews pruning the hedges, so I decided to take some pictures…

I thought the hedges were pretty funny, but I really liked the concrete wall with built in planters and the purple plants.  I would have taken more pictures, but if you stop, people start asking questions.  It was also raining, but at least everything looked really green!

We also saw a boat we kinda liked.  We jokingly thought we might like one just like it…

So after all that, we left the Island (what the Town of Palm Beach is referred to) and entered civilization…
