Atlantic Avenue and Ice Cream- It’s a Summer Thing!
Even though the season has been over for a month, and the snowbirds have flown north, there’s something very special you can do on Atlantic Avenue.
It’s what I think of when I think of summer… sitting down and eating ice cream...whether it’s in a cup or cone, it goes hand in hand with summer.
And, though Atlantic Avenue is known for its festivals and growing number of restaurants and shops, there's something relaxing about grabbing a cone or cup of your favorite ice cream, sitting back on The Ave and people watching.

Two Fat Cookies! Gourmet Cookies in Delray Beach!
One of the marks of a good outing is when you discover something new. Two Fat Cookies in Delray Beach was just such a discovery. Located on NE 2nd Avenue in the Pineapple Grove area north of Atlantic Avenue in Delray, Two Fat Cookies is just what all good dessert lovers need.
The cookies and other treats are made with quality ingredients, from scratch! I made the “ultimate sacrifice” and tried the mini-molten chocolate cake and it was as good as I’ve ever had!

Scenes from Delray Beach-
Every day is a new day when we walk along the beach at Delray. We walk there every morning…. some days we’re on the sidewalk, and others we may spend time actually on the beach.
No matter what, though, there’s always something new to see, or someone new to say “Good Morning” to.
We get to see dogs and their owners. Sometimes the owners are actually the ones walking the dogs!
There is the occasional rollerblader (I wonder how come you don’t see as many of those around anymore?)
Often we’ll see what’s

Nutrition Cottage is Still Open in Boynton Beach!
For as long as I can remember, as a resident of Delray Beach, the Nutrition Cottage has been on Atlantic Avenue. So when their Delray Beach store closed just a few weeks ago, I knew that all was not lost because there was still the Nutrition Cottage in Boynton Beach.
They are only 4 miles apart, and there’s more parking too!
What I love about the Nutrition Cottage is that everyone who works there knows what they’re selling you.
They can also tell you how and when to take these supplements.

A Scoop of Chocolate Therapy and Jerry!
I must admit that yesterday we were decadent. One of the things we love to do
the afternoons is to take a drive down Atlantic Avenue and by the beach.
The weather was just perfect, so we pulled up in front of Ben & Jerry’s on Atlantic Avenue. Larry found us a table outside, and I went in to get our ice cream.
I love this store because it’s an easy block or so away from A1Aand it’s so much fun to sit outside and see Delray visitors as well as

We’ve been walking every morning at Delray Beach lately so I thought I’d share some of our recent photos. After about 4 years of photographing alligators and birds on our walks at Green Cay Wetlands, I’m now taking photos of the beach, surfers, and my favorite…. the sunrise at Delray Beach.
The photo to the right was done with an app on my iPhone called Instaweather Pro. You can snap a photo, choose a template, and your current weather is displayed. You can then post it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media.
