Saturday Snapshot: West Palm Beach, Florida

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads.

Amidst all the holiday hectic-ness last week and before a trip to spend the Thanksgiving weekend with our extended family, our little family of four escaped to the warm Florida beaches for a mini vacation.  Just three days of relaxing in the sunshine provided a lovely little respite in the busy holiday season - and we got lucky with perfect weather! Here are some highlights:

White egret among the rocks at the beach
The four of us...and the Goodyear blimp!
Perfect weather and beautiful beaches!
CityPlace in downtown West Palm Beach - Christmas trees & palm trees together!
Our CityPlace family selfie
Grassy Waters Nature Preserve - see the big alligator in the water?

Walking through the boardwalk trail at the preserve

Just before we left, we saw this baby gator!
Beach at night - dinner right on the water!

Lots of beautiful murals in downtown West Palm Beach
Another cool mural
 Hope you are enjoying a nice weekend, wherever you are!


  1. That preserve looks so relaxing!

    1. It was! A wonderful way to end our trip. We were disappointed not to see ANY of the wildlife shown on signs there...but then we spotted the two gators from the parking lot and felt better :)

  2. Winter is the perfect time to visit South Florida, and it looks like you and your family had a great time. Love your photos from the nature preserve -- beautiful and no bugs this time of year. Great shots of the gators and murals, too.
    My Saturday Snapshot post features a hike among giant rocks!

    1. Yes, that's right - perfect weather and no bugs!
