Rainy night at dusk at the new docks – West Palm Beach, Florida, originally uploaded by Photomike07.
I have done a lot of wandering, indeed miles and miles of bumbling about exploring new city’s both here and abroad. As our own city of West Palm Beach continues to transform and re-brand itself, I hope that the traveler to this evolving city shares that passion. The waterfront scene along Flagler is now in the early stages of a complete overhaul complete with temporary boat docks, pedestrian paths, and unique access to the beautiful intracoastal views of Palm Beach. I’ve read a few negative blurbs about the use or lack there of regarding the new additions, but my view is quite the opposite. First off, its kinda nice to have a little space to enjoy a stroll, but the reality is the project isn’t finished! Why are some people so obsessed with immediate results. Let the project run its course I say! Rest assured, when this area is finished, Downtown West Palm Beach’s waterfront will a destination in and of itself, and I can think of no better way to invest out tax dollars than improving this wonderful asset we have down here. Build it, and they will come they say…….well, I’m already here….and loving it! My thanks to our local politicians with the vision to make it happen.
