48 hours in Delray Beach, Florida after 14 inches of snow in New York…  I’ll take it!

Warm temperatures and a low key vibe was just what I needed.  The lovely Delray beach with a long, scenic walking path allowed me to peek at some lovely homes.

We packed a lot into a short time.  Beach during the day, complete with a cooler full of sandwiches from the AMAZING Sandwiches By The Sea on Atlantic Avenue.  Homemade bread and fresh ingredients… delicious.
