My Last Travel Photos! :)

I really promise!

Hello, Dear Ones! As I told you yesterday, one more day of photos of my trip and that's all. Well, until I go somewhere else which is coming up in the near future! :)

We rented a car and took a little day trip down or up to Palm Beach to see The Breakers Resort. Oh, let me tell you, Dear Ones, this was a most gorgeous place!

I wanted to see this most beautiful property and Mr. Precious took me for a little tour! This most gorgeous five star hotel/resort was built in 1896 and was fashioned after The Villa Medici in Rome, Italy! Oh, so very lovely! I just crammed so many photos here for you. Look at all the various light sources ~ standing and hanging! I love light fixtures! :) Can you love? I won't even go there! ;) See the center photo? Well, we had to have our noon nourishment and I feasted on the most delicious crab cakes I've ever put into my tiny mouth! Yumminess to the max! Well, I may never get to stay here, but I did eat here! That's a good thing!


Then we came back to Boca Raton, Florida, and poked around The Boca Raton Resort. This most lovely place was built in 1926. Now we have stayed here a number of times, but it's been about eight years or so since we've been here! It's changed inside! I was sad. Everything was whitewashed ~ pretty ~ but I think it took some of the old elegant charm away! :( Did you know boca raton in Spanish means 'rat's mouth'? Yep, or to be more correct ~ the mouth of the rat! :) That's a hoot, don't you think! See the bottom left picture ~ that's me snapping again for you! When I see a great bathroom I just can't help myself! Now I look a little pregnant in this picture, but Dear Ones, be assured ~ I'M NOT! :) This was a wonderful bathroom!


Okay, now this mosaic is for my sweet southern blogging friends! Just for you little dahlings. I'd never heard of Publix until I started blogging and so many of you mention it and buy the most beautiful foods and flowers there. Well, we saw one and I screamed for Mr. Precious to stop! Stop! Stop! He said, "What for?" I told him I had to go inside the Publix for my southern blogging friends and snap. Well, he understands me. I went inside and took some pictures! We did buy some bottled water and it was very good tasting southern water!!

Thank you all, Dear Ones, for coming along with me on my little travels! Hope you're all not as hot as I am this summer! I'm staying inside with the AC!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

I'll Be Seeing You
(this song always makes me cry, but I still love it)

I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day through.

In that small cafe;
The park across the way;
The children's carousel;
The chestnut trees;
The wishin' well.

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day;
In every thing that's light and gay.
I'll always think of you that way.

I'll find you
In the morning sun
And when the night is new.
I'll be looking at the moon,
But I'll be seeing you.

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day;
In every thing that's light and gay.
I'll always think of you that way.

I'll find you
In the morning sun
And when the night is new.
I'll be looking at the moon,
But I'll be seeing you.
