Had to stop by famous Kilwins for their homemade slabs of fudge. So many fun little beachy shops abound and I purchased a few of these crazy, tiny rubber hands. They are hilarious and sis and I played with them all afternoon.
Even though the snowbirds have left, major holidays bring lots of traffic so we decided to ditch driving and Uber it for dinner. It's hard to find parking and valet is costly and limited, so we decided to Uber it.
Uber is the way to go when beaching it. Fast, efficient, affordable and you meet the nicest drivers. The cost for both trips (to and from) combined with tips was still less than parking or valet.
Supper was at the famous Whales Rib. A Diner's, Drive-In's and Dive's pick and a Deerfield Beach favorite. Lines are always out the door but it is worth it.
We then shared an order of blackened scallops that were so tender and juicy you could slice them with your fork. Best scallops I have ever eaten.
From dinner we took a lovely walk along the beach and then sat on the benches and watched the world stroll by.
A slow sunset was rich with pastel color.
The lifeguard shack at sunset. Lovely way to end a perfect day and we Ubered it home.
Sunday we attended Church and then lunch at The Flashblack Diner. From there we decided to do another beach day and after spending 40 minutes trying to find a parking space we drove back home and called Uber instead. Really, this is the only way to get around a beach community.
Since we planned to spend most of the Memorial Day morning at the beach, we did not want to spend time looking for a parking space. We called Uber again and boy are we glad we did. The beaches were already packed with families and locals wanting to spend time in the sun and parking was full by 9:30 am. We spent the next 3 1/2 hours laying on a raft in the ocean and soaked up the sun as we were gently rocked by the low tide waves.
