Our guide, Lori, was very knowledgeable. She gave us a lot of history of Lake Worth before we reached our first destination. Our first stop was the Sable Palm House Bed and Breakfast. The B&B was delightful. We were shown three of the sleeping accomodations which are named for artists. We saw the Rockwell, Renoir and Chagal rooms. They were charming and had art from the different artists on the wall. We were given the inside secret to the paintings in the Chagal room. We finished off our visit here with homemade scones and tea.. Our next stop was The Cottage. Although our tastings were not quite ready, Lori made us comfortable sitting outside with her stories about the restaurant and other information on the area. The tastings at the Cottage were eclectic and very good. We were given discount tickets for a return visit on our own. (definitely worth another visit). On our way to Lake Avenue we stopped at the Juice Bar. The owner is a commissioner of Lake Worth and told us of the revitalization of the "Casino" and other things. We were given wrap tastings and some strawberry banana shake. Everything is organic and his little store on Lake Ave has everything you can imagine. We then went to the Lake Worth Art League. We were cheerfully invited to look around. This was a nice storefront co-operative where you can learn to paint and exhibit. As we walked, Lori pointed out various buildings and told us their history. We went to the Glass, Mettle Stone Gallery next. This gallery has mostly 2 and 3 dimentional art. They have monthly showings of new work. (Worthwhile coming back here). Our next stop was Brogues Down Under. A lovely dark wood interior with various wall hangings like a pub in Ireland. The owners are from Australia and they are making the back room reminicent of their background. Lovely, large place. We were given samples of sausage rolls and were told that sausage is the number one item for barbecues down under and also on the street corneres. They also served pistachio pound cake and wine. A fun place to visit with friends. It was back on the bus for some more history and a stop at the Tortilleria factory where they are made fresh daily. Some of us bought packages to take home. Again boarding the bus we visited Lantana and some more history there and went to George's Meat Market.(an old fashioned butcher shop) that had all different kinds of meat grinders on one of their walls. In addition to raw meats and groceries, they make up sandwiches and salads. This is a great place to stop when going to the beach. We thanked Lori for this great not-to-be-missed tour and providing us with a sunny day.

Dear Lori,
Just want to tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The guide was very professional, clear-speaking, accommodating and well-versed on the subject. The driver was polite and helpful. The tastings were delicious and most adequate. I learned a lot about my surroundings and look forward to joining you again on the tour of Delray Beach in the near future. Thank you.
