Hello Denver and Seattle

From Lake Worth Beach, just not staying in our Quirky little sea side town.

Seattle enjoying our perfect beach

Today a bit overcast, Sitting outside with friends at the Monada Cafe. Watching people heading to the beach. One bike rider outfitted with helmet and little else except his speedo.

Anne and Gail just two of the regulars of the Palm Beach Sketch Group
They select a different picturesque location each week in Palm Beach County .

Wandered over the bridge to Palm Beach Island where our Lake Worth Beach is located and discovered that Viva la Playa overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is now serving breakfast, starting at 9 AM .

Nothing amis this Friday April 1 2022


This past week Lake Worth Sketchers made the NEW Common Ground their destination. What a fabulous New Location their 4th Managed by Justin Olive. We will have to wait if there will be another Olive in the Wings for a fifth, perhaps when our pool gets done.

Newest Location

Lake Worth Beach Urban sketchers has morphed into Palm Beach Sketchers a our group has gained participants and sketches sites all over Palm Beach Co.. Each building in this complex has its own number 3065 s Dixie address it’s located on the West side of Dixie Hwy. straight across from 3030 south in WPB. With a bus stop less than 100 ft away.

The decor is calm spacious with lots of natural light from 3 sides. there is also out side seating facing this beautiful complex. Well situated away from the morning sun for a calm cup of Java. They could have been at the Mid, aesthetics do after-all count in architecture to draw the right people Saw no one over 50. Definitely their clientele is an upwardly Mobil crowd.

Location Location how often we hear this. Equal distance away from Clamatis nightlife north or south to our own Beach and Bryant Park. Each city is able to draw depending on the activities that each provides to draw tourism and the local residents. Common Ground made a great decision on this location.

Would you go the extra mile to experience this beautiful calm athmosphere ? Serenity now!

Oh yes, did I mention each @Common Ground has a Piano. Always a pleasure to encounter a player. This location was quiet so very conducive to working sketching chilling.

EDITORS NOTE: Their other locations are downtown LWB on 12 s J st. In West PB it’s 3965 s Dixie Boynton Beach is 1517 S Federal. 1112 s Federal in LWB. This one Is a bit different as it houses not just a coffee Shop but a Music School rental spaces a pod Cast studio fully equipped and on Sundays a place to worship. Check out their FB as they all have programming pop up performances or special meetings.

Our future amenity. POOL

A 2 minutes comments at city commission meeting, no matter how many, can not compare to a visual explanation no matter how many descriptive words. my words were cut short.

A spectacular entry from the south

This is an idealized version of what is possible. Not overnight but with phases and a 5 year time line. So what comes first, the obvious. Wonder if a container could be an option for the concession stand. Must we tear down buildings or can they be repurposed.

Glass wall or one with portholes?

When I first got to South Beach I entered a hotel that had a similar wall. As you entered the Lobby, on the left, you could see people in the pool. I was impressed, portholes just like the cruise ships.

Another attraction an Infinity pool

The latest in pool designs also known as an endless pool. Definitely a destination, any tourist to Palm Beach would pay an entry fee for this experience. On the north side a. family center that could double as a club room for rent. 8 tables chairs at least very utilitarian. Parties, kids lessons, corporate meetings. Use your imagination.

The golden hour, sunset
Bride descending the staircase photo op

SUNSET an unobstructed view of our golden hour, from the pool or from the cafe a perfect meditative area buffered from the noisy pool sounds by falling water. Accessible from concession stand via a few steps down on the southern side to the seating area and to the north a few steps up to the family area.

There is a need for a bridal Suite. The ballroom is already upstairs. A location from where the bride can make her grand entrance down a staircase into the existing garden. A garden area that already holds weddings. Below the staircase is room for storage.

I included the windturban tree that was featured on a story from France as a future possibility.. I checked price a mere $28.000; located this wind turban tree close to the pump room which is left where it is now.

Wind turban tree

Last but not least what we all want, wanted since the time I served on Leisure Service Board but there were no funds. The specifications as to the lanes required the width for the pool came from Sally Welch. Our in house expert with experience. Tune into you tube under City of Lake Worth Beach and yesterday’s date Nov. 8 to hear the comments. Feel free to comment here.

The few last words that were cut” it will attract out of state visitors bringing vacation dollars to our city.”
