Unidentified building -- hotel or condo, I guess -- on or near the Hillsboro Beach / Deerfield Beach, Florida line,
2:05 p.m., January 24, 2021
Day 3 and last full day of my Deerfield Beach, Florida midwinter vacation in a near-tropical clime.
Except for too much drinking and excessive spending of money, it has been a nice trip -- and a desperately needed one to get the fuck out of Washington, D.C., and its multifaceted ugly climate.
Yes, a multfaceted ulgly climate of CRT-infused poisonous politics; language-based Thought Control; deranged WOKE fundamentalist Karens turning society itself -- to say nothing of their own children -- into deeply mentally damaged zombified state in which humans are perceived as nothing but vectors of disease and racism ...
...Big Media-led open-ended, suffocating straitjacketed pseudo pandemics; Big Tech censorship; and a lunatic leftwing Democrat government under the notional leadership of a dementia-addled old man who, on his best days, is only half aware of what's going on.
God, I hate it there and don't want to return. I still have my option of moving down there for a spell. Or maybe longer.

Correction: Gary standing next to a tree form-like monocot called a palm ... Basically, a strange form of bamboo.
The weather has reverted to a more normal South Florida state: Temps around 75°F, dew points nearing 70°F, and southerly and easterly flow off the Atlantic. This is in contrast to the drier, cooler weather with a westerly flow when we arrived.
The ocean was like a lake with barely any any waves on it the past few days -- and that variable aquamarine and turquoise hue.
I walked about a half mile down the beach to the Hillsboro Beach line and found that condo complex called Ocean Vista whose end units abuts the edge of the beach.

I am sure that that building was the hot pink-hued structure that I saw far down the beach back in my 2009 and 2011 visits that so captured my attention precisely because it looked so small and inviting as seen from a distance. However, the structure today is a beige or maybe light goldenrod color, and I can't find any proof that it was once that lavender pastel color.

In looking at my entries from back then, I discovered I never took any pictures of it despite being intrigued by it. In fact, the only mention of it I found is in this entry discussing my Sept 2011 visit here, where I referenced it as lavender.
To clarify, it is the end unit of a narrow row of condos stretching between the beach and the Intracoastal Waterway and bifurcated into an east and west side by A1A.
The Hillsboro Light is easily visible a farther distance down the beach.
Having walked to it once and then having to walk back, I'm not going to do that again.
As for my visits down here, I updated my previous entry to note that I was here three times in 2009 and once in 2011 with that visit being, I believe, the last time I was here.
One last item: Yesterday, while seated at the outdoor part of the Ocean234 restaurant, I met a very nice lady named Toni originally from Rhode Island who now lives in Boca Raton. She was there with her friend and his adorable little Manchester terrier dog.
I think she could become a friend. I hope to see her today if I can figure out a way for her to get here (since she rode with her friend yesterday).
OK, that's all for now. don't want to go off on a lengthy blog entry here as I need to be back on the beach and in the ocean.
My next planned entry will be late tomorrow night when I'm back home or, alternatively, on Wednesday night.
