I discovered the historic area of Boynton Beach when I was working through my Internet crisis. After using the library computers, I would walk around the area. It’s no Boston or Savannah but it is nice. An effort has been made to preserve some old homes and apartment buildings. I like these two in particular.
I love the shadow cast by the streetlight and the palm tree even more. I love everything about palm trees. Their shadow, their reflection in glass office buildings, the rustling sound they make when swaying in the breeze.
The above apartments are a smaller version of the building I live in. I’m not sure when they were built, I’m guessing the sixties.
There is a lot of public art in this small area of town.
I can walk here from my apartment, so I rotate between the beach and the streets near my apartment building. The historic district is a longer walk, so it depends how much time and energy I have. And of course, how hot it is. The heat in South Florida is always a factor.
A nice thought for the day.
I don’t really see a dream catcher or acrobats, but maybe it’s in the shadows which I didn’t capture in this photo. I’ll try again the next time I walk here.
The town has built a new city hall, the old one is abandoned. There is a nice fish sculpture here. I don’t know if they have plans for this building. I hope they do, I like it. But we live in a time of austerity, when our politicians insist we must reduce taxes and spending, so I don’t know. This place may get demolished someday.
And this is the library that saved me during that two week period without the internet.
It’s a new building, nothing historic, but a wonderful institution worth preserving.
