For years I called a Bangor, a small town in Northern Ireland home. Bangor is located a mere 18 miles from Belfast. I lived in County Down toward the end of “The Troubles”. Compared to what others saw and lived thru I had a quiet life. To this day, the Irish are one of the most friendly on the planet ( in my humble opinion that is) and I still , in the center of my heart I call it home.
But as great as it was and still is, well, the weather is something to be reckoned with. Long dark , cold and raining winter days and nights still are a part of my memory. And so, to this day, I still marvel at the fact I live in South Florida where I do not own a pair of closed toed shoes, wouldn’t put a coat on my back and have the luxury of swimming outdoors at 10 in the evening.
To My “Marvel” List I now add an oceanfront restaurant located on Deerfield Beach. JB’s on the Beach is located just north of Hillsboro Beach on A1A. .I met a friend there for drinks and a lite dinner there last week. We were lucky, we arrived around 4:30 in the afternoon, just before the crowd so we were able to find a sit right next to the path leading to the beach. The food was elegantly presented, the drinks cool and relaxing and the breeze from the Atlantic Ocean was simply sweet. This is a place I certainly will return to, might even bring my sister from Wales when she visits.
I pinch myself to this day …. while others prepare for a long winter filled with snow and rain, I am off to buy yet another pair of sandals. And so here’s a big CHEERS to My “Marvel” List ….
