In this week’s video we travel a few miles north to Delray Beach, which is located approximately halfway between Ft. lauderdale and Palm Beach. It was our original intention to try Harvest Hosts, but decided to make a last minute change of plans.
Harvest Hosts is a subscription service that lists farms, wineries, and points of interest that allow you to boondock overnight on their property at no cost. It is customary and encouraged that you buy something from your host as a token of your appreciation for letting you spend the night. That was our plan this weekend. We figured we would spend the night at Bedner’s Farm in Delray, get some fresh produce from them, and explore the area. But when we learned that they lock the gate at night and there’s no in an out, we decided that, at least on this particular occasion, Harvest Hosts wasn’t the best option, as we wanted to explore the area’s nightlife. We made a last minute decision and decided to pay for an RV park. I had already been researching places to stay in the area and opted for Del Raton RV Park, impeccably located near the border between Delray and Boca Raton, hence the name. The RV park doesn’t have many amenities, but is it just a couple of minutes away from the beach and downtown Delray, so we didn’t mind paying the $43 per night all that much.
Delray Beach is a fun town at night and full of outdoor activities during the day. We really wanted to visit the Wakodahatchee Wetlands but it was closed during our stay here. Instead we visited the Morikami Gardens and Museum, arguably the most famous attraction in the area. I also enjoyed the frigid and turbulent waters of the atlantic ocean on a windy November afternoon.
At night, we walked around Atlantic Boulevard, in downtown, and had a byte at one of its many culinary offerings, which according to our cranky Uber driver were all tourist traps. Perhaps they were, but we didn’t mind.
Coming in early December I will start selling a double CD (US only for now) with all the tracks I have ever composed for my traveling videos. You can preorder now or use the drop down menu for more options. For CD orders outside the USA please contact me as I may have to charge for shipping.
