Part of the time we stayed in Pompano Beach with accommodations on the Atlantic Ocean. It was a short walk to the Pompano Beach Fishing Pier and Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse. While my daughter was sleeping and healing, I took morning and afternoon walks on the beach and out to the pier. I also spent a lot of time sitting on the beach or on the balcony with sunhat, water bottles, travel journal, Pitt pens and two plein air palettes. It certainly passed the time between doctor appointments. Here are a few of my favorite journal entries:
|Black Skimmer about 3 feet away|
|Portuguese-Man-O' War on the beach|
|Walk to Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse|
|Wyndham Sea Gardens - Pompano Beach|
|My plein air set-up and lunch|
|Views of the Intercoastal Waterway from our balcony.|
|Beach Views 80 Degrees|
|Red Flag Warning - No Swimming|
|Pompano Beach Fishing Pier|
|Views from Wyndham Oceanside balcony|
We changed buildings and resorts a few times (via our timeshare ownership in WorldMark). Our last two days were at Wyndham Palm-Aire near championship golf courses and lakes where I could observe some amazing reptiles and resort life.

South Florida is certainly an artist's paradise. Perfect sunny days and gentle breezes, just what I needed to jump start plein air painting in 2016. Stay tuned!
