photo-1_400

On any Thursday evening you will encounter the most unique blown glass, wooden sculptures and pottery, silver and gold jewelry on the waterfront!  On Thursday evenings at the Sailfish Marina, www.sailfishmarina.com , you will find musicians, like Clark Rodriguez, singing and playing his guitar.  You’ll hear sounds of your favorite Jimmy Buffet inspired tunes or steel drums playing on the boardwalk as the sun sets colorfully in the western sky. You will also see lazy pelicans bobbing around in the water hopping to catch a scrap of fish food some amber jacks were too slow to scoop up.

In this idyllic tropical location, on Singer Island, people come from all over to browse the 35

Delray Beach’s famed Sundy House was the site of a recent fundraiser for the city’s public library that raised $2,000.

The “Dine Out” event featured a celebrity chef, and a portion of proceeds from food sales directly benefited the library.

The boutique inn in downtown Delray Beach is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is an attraction for city residents and visitors. The quaint and quiet retreat is Victorian in style and the site of not only fundraisers, but also weddings and other intimate events.

For those thinking about investing in Delray Beach homes for sale, the Sundy House definitely is an area attraction.

RAINY DAYS AND MONDAYS

 

DON’T GET US DOWN…

Perhaps, “Rainy days and Mondays” got the Carpenters down because they didn’t live in our area!  If the immensely popular brother and sister duo from the 1970’s had chosen South Florida, they might have found plenty of things to do on a rainy day, but they wouldn’t have had that Billboard Top 100 record and their fourth gold single!   

If you’re not familiar with the duo The Carpenters, they were in great demand in the 1970’s.  Richard and Karen created a soft musical style that made them top selling artists when most contemporary music was hard hitting rock and roll.   They recorded 11 albums and television specials. 

Maybe, if they had lived in our area the lyrics of “Rainy days and, Mondays” could

Ryan Hunter-Reay is one of Indy Car’s première drivers. As a member of Andretti Racing he won “Rookie of the Year” in 2007.  He holds the honor of being the only driver to win CART, Champ Car, and Indy Car!  Follow Ryan on his official website www.ryanracing.com.  At the age of 31, Hunter-Reay hates when people drive fast through the South Florida neighborhood he shares with his wife. He prefers a slower pace, a much more relaxed lifestyle, than the fast paced Indy racetrack for his “down time”. His preferred hobby is deep-sea fishing.  Nothing beats the deep-sea fishing off the South Florida coast in the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. He can’t find enough excuses, like any other local, to take out the boat and fish or dive.  Whether fishing or diving, or
