Last week was a “Perfect Storm” of events for my family topped off by a real storm that knocked out our power and sanity. Although my girls are on spring break, my husband is crazed at work so we had waffled on going away. By day five of no power I called The Breakers in Palm Beach and booked a room and the girls and I were packed and at the airport within hours.
My college hall-mate Lisa was down there with her son who was training with an Olympic sailor for the week and I decided to meet up with her. In the end, all the awful things that had transpired led us to the best vacation ever! I have fond memories of multi-family ski trips as a child where kids of all ages hung out together and had a blast. Our mothers would have a glass of wine at night by the fire while the gang of children would watch movies and play games.
Without planning it, our Palm Beach vacation turned into such a trip. The Breakers is the perfect hotel for families. They have game rooms, a playground, restaurant, camp, basket ball court and swimming pools just for children. It is walking distance to town and right on the beach. Lisa and I let the kids loose and we sat by the pool at night drinking tea and catching up. An earlier post on Palm Beach was my guide and was spot-on with the restaurant Pizza Al Fresco, we ate there twice. Bice is also yummy. Don’t tell my mother who winters in Naples, but we plan on many returns to Palm Beach!Love This, Palm Beach, Pizza Al Fresco, The Breakers
