Delray Beach FL- My Village By the Sea

By
Home Stager with Room Service Home Staging

Delray Beach, FL- My Village By the Sea.

I first came to Delray Beach in 1987 from Houston, TX, my birthplace and Delray Beach - my favorite placehome for 37 years.  It was a move from a city of almost 2 million people to this beautiful Village by the Sea.  

Let me show you a little of our beautiful beach.

Drive east on Atlantic Avenue until you hit A1A and you’ll see Delray’s 2 miles of public beach.

The daytime temperatures average 83 degrees with nighttime lows of 67 degrees.
 

On any day, you may see early morning fishermen and women casting out to sea, following bait fish or birds high in the sky for clues to where today’s catch might be.

There is a gentleman I see on occasion who plays bongos to the beat of his own music; our Piper who welcomes the rising sun and serenades us with Scotland the Brave and Amazing Grace. If the wind is right, you may see surfboarders or even surfers!
  

There are yogis, runners, shell collectors and tire draggers!   Right now, it’s turtle nesting season so the beach is dotted with signs marking a turtle nest.  If you go early enough, we’ve seen a few night herons and a few ducks!



 

Don’t just dream of spending some time at the beach!

Come to Delray Beach- our Village By the Sea!

oh those tire draggers, bless their hearts LOL  I wish I could hear the crash of waves and go barefoot in the sand more often.. Theres no better therapy than the ocean.   My husband was a police officer for Delray Beach early 80s ... we met in Juno, another great location for the loggerhead turtles. Great walk down memory lane with your post. thanks !

I love the beach!  We'll be on a beach next week, but I'm not telling you where.  (It won't be anywhere near you darn it!)

What a nice video, I have to say i am falling in love with Delray Beach as well. Today is cool fall day, even though it is August... I am getting nervous with thoughts of winter. I could use a beach day every day...

Michele- I've met so many who once lived in Florida and headed to the Carolina's.  Hope you make a trip south and see Delray and Atlantic Avenue!  It's changed.

BARFF- You would love it.  Just think if you could look out over the ocean.

Conrad- it's why we moved back here twice.

Gita- thank you.  We have many in our area who also live in your area during the summer.

Jared and Amanda- it better not be!   Have fun and enjoy yourself!

Sheila- my husband's company.  He started up their homebuilidng in in South Florida. Sheila Anderson 

Joe- Thanks!  It's fun to travel along the coast and see how different each city is here.

Scott- I've been seeing some of the temps!  What's with that??

Jeffrey- I hope you were on Atlantic Avenue!!

Patty- thank you!   Many changes are going on for the downtown area.

Hi Kathy - What a beautiful place you live in, and that's a great video showcase. I'm not real sure about the bagpipes at dawn - I'm surprised no one has stabbed that guy yet - but the rest of it looks awesome.

Just a bit pricey for the real estate but other than that, truly beautiful.

While I doubt I could live there, I would love to come down for a visit.  That video was great, no wonder you love living there!

Nick & Trudy- if it's the one I'm thinking of, it may have moved.  Development strikes again. Nick & Trudy Vandekar 

Janice- it's the best time to be here! 

Dick- Hey!!!   I love bagpipes!  Really, I have no idea where it comes from because unless my parents forgot to tell me something, I don't have any ancestors from Scotland or Ireland.  I go to the parades here just for the bagpipes!  We met the piper and one of the reasons he comes to the beach is so that he won't disturb anyone.  (I have a bagpipe app on my iPhone)  Dick Greenberg 

Kevin- you must be speaking of that town to the south of us.

Roy- You and Dolores can hop on a plane and be here in short order. 

Sharon- I love the area, and try not to let a day go by without going down Atlantic Avenue or seeing the beach.

Ron- it's different here, for sure.  You have to get used to the heat in the summer and some other things.
