Palm Beach and West Palm Beach
Posted on 5/15/2019 6:26 PM
After a nice visit in Ft Pierce and Port St. Lucie with Sherry's sister Della and her significant other Jack, we decided to head a little farther south to check out the Palm Beach and West Palm Beach area. 

 First, we made a one day "chill out stop" at the Hutchinson Island Marriott Marina.

A girl's softball tournament was in the area and they were staying at the Marriott.  It was girl central.

Headed toward Palm Beach.  We passed by Jupiter FL on the way and saw a lot of spectacular homes along the ICW and, of course, the Jupiter Inlet lighthouse.

On to Palm Beach.  We spent one night at the Palm Beach Marina, pricey and the service was underwhelming, but it is very convenient to the downtown area of Palm Beach, the beach, and other major tourist sites (Flagler mansion and the Breakers).
Worth Avenue is the primary shopping district in Palm Beach.   Every high end major designer imaginable and some we didn't know were along the avenue.   The stores and quaint courtyards were reminiscent of Palm Springs in California.

Next day trekked upstream a bit and anchored across from the free city docks at West Palm Beach.   WPB was a great town.  Lots of shops, restaurants, art, and attractions.  It seems they have a very active live music scene which would be fun to check out next time we are in the area.

And yep, our boat seemed pretty small in the Palm Beach and West Palm Beach area...
