Christmas Eve was in Miami, Christmas was in Hollywood, so the day after Christmas was in Palm Beach, near where Connie & Dann and Gette & Rosemary live. Most of us had not been to the Palm Beach Zoo, so that is where we went. Gette and Rosemary went with Rosemary's sister and brother-in-law, visiting from Maryland, to the Miami Dolphin's football game instead.

The zoo was interesting and compact! There were some different animals here, but the birds and ducks were quite interesting to me. We spent a few hours at least going through it and enjoying ourselves. Ashley was a very good little girl even when she got tired because of having no nap.

I drove due West to get back home and found that it took the same amount of time from there as if I drove from Miami! They still grow lots of sugar cane south and west of Lake Okeechobee.

The pictures show you what we saw and did.
