Delray Beach, Florida, Village by the Sea, South Florida, Palm Beach County, Week-end, Holiday Celebrations, 12/10/10 – 12/11/10



As you have heard from the weather forecasters, South Florida has had very cold temperatures since Monday.  Well, I kid you not; today I saw a woman wearing a fur coat.  I cannot believe she was that cold.  And, today has been chilly; not freezing. It strikes me so funny to also see people weraring gloves.

Delray looks beautiful this time of the year.  Atlantic Avenue has lights everywhere; the restaurants have outdone themselves with their own unique decorations.  The 100 ft. tree looks spectacular, especially in the early evening hours.
