Our Delray Vacay: Part 5

Our time in Delray Beach was definitely over far too quickly. That Monday was our last day, and we committed ourselves to waking up early (7:30am, but hey, that’s early for vacation) and getting to the beach to beat the heat. Sitting on the beach with Matt that morning was such a peaceful, soothing experience. It felt like we didn’t have a worry in the world. There was no dreading of returning to real life; to jobs, to bills, to errands. All that existed was me, Matt, and the ocean. Unfortunately, my bladder did not enjoy the same peaceful state, and we had to cut our beach visit a bit shorter to find me a bathroom. But that morning was one of my favorite moments of the trip. Getting home did prove to be a bit more difficult than we expected (flight was cancelled, rescheduled to the next day, rerouted to LaGuardia instead of JFK… the usual), but we made it home without a hitch. Making the transition back to real life is never easy, but I wouldn’t trade …

Our Delray Vacay: Part 4

Our Sunday in Delray was definitely one of my favorite days of the entire trip. We signed up for a two hour yacht cruise along the Intracoastal Waterway, which brought us through Delray Beach and Boca Raton. The houses in Boca were incredible; as we learned from our trip to the Boca mall earlier in the week, there’s definitely no shortage of funds in that town. The waterfront houses were essentially mansions and each had one or two (or three) boats and/or jet skis. Basically, it made me feel more poor than ever! (Kidding, kidding… but really.) The cruise was a really fun way to spend the afternoon and we saw some really interesting places, including the former CEO of Enron’s house. However, we saw no sea cows (aka manatees), which I was slightly disappointed about. And, as always, we took a plethora of selfies. Later that night, we headed back to Deerfield Beach to take advantage of the clear skies. The weather was much nicer than it had been when we were there at JB’s a few days …
