Fort Lauderdale to Palm Beach

Fort Lauderdale Trip on Waketon Road Blog

On Monday I shared about our quick day trip to Palm Beach. We were staying in Fort Lauderdale and decided to make the drive up to spend part of the day in Palm Beach.

2017 Travel Roundup

A Weekend at Hambleton Hall on Waketon Road Blog

As we near the end of 2017 I’m going back over everything that has happened this year and looking forward to what’s to come. I’m not sure what it is about the approaching new year that makes everyone so reflective. Maybe it’s the chance to start fresh.

After a morning spent enjoying Hambleton, we took a cab over...

We didn’t get to explore this area on our honeymoon so this was a must see on our day trip to Paris. I love what an artistic feel Montmartre has. The hills and winding streets...
