What’s Going on Delray?, Activities, Events, Entertainment, South Florida, Palm Beach County, Friday, Saturday, Sunday



I cannot believe that February is almost over.  It was so funny; today I was at Rehoboth Auto Repair located in Rehoboth Beach when a local builder from Lewes came in and stated “everybody in this darn town is on vacation”, “my electrician is in Florida”, “my plumber is in South Florida”, but “”not me”.  His next statement was “I like here like this, no tourists, no bugs, no heat”.

That made me think about Delray Beach.  It was crowded when I was there last month and I wonder if the locals are ready to take their town back.  I think we do feel that way around here, at the end of the summer, but tourism is what makes our beaches.  I don’t know, I think I am ready for Spring and Summer; for those visitors to arrive and see how lucky we are to live here.

As usual, Delray Beach is full of activities this week-end.  So here is a taste of what you can experience if you find yourselves in the warmer climate of that Village by the Sea.

Update received from the MERR Institute, Inc. regarding the findings after performing a necropsy on the Fin Whale that washed up this past week-end on the beach in Fenwick Island.  This information is from a member of the necropsy team.  It was only 20 years old, and weighed at least 100,000 lbs.  The whale appears to have died from a blunt force trauma, most likely a boat strike.  “To the public that traveled to see this amazing creature, thanks for supporting MERR’s efforts in understanding more about the marine mammals and sea turtles that visit Delaware’s coastal waters.”  If you would like to see my post and pictures regarding the fin whale just scroll down to the 3/21 post on this blog.
