living the high life

Chillin’ in Boca Raton

We made it to Boca today. A 57 mile journey through the weekend drunken’ motorboater madness of Jupiter inlet, Singer Island at Lake Worth and Boynten Beach. I am always surprised at the amount of people and their toys in South Florida. The sand bar on the north end of Singer Island at Lake Worth… Continue reading Chillin’ in Boca Raton
