This past week I enjoyed a staycation in my beautiful coastal town in South Florida. The weather in South Florida is brutally hot this time of year, but by the sea we have a nice steady breeze. Lighthouse Point is a small coastal town of 12,000 nestled between Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton. I took a short drive down to Pompano Beach to walk on the beach and search for shells. While I was walking on the beach near the pier I could see our beautiful Lighthouse to the North. I decided to drive up A1A for a closer look. It was very relaxing to sit by the inlet to the ocean and watch boats come and go and enjoy a nice cone of ice cream. Sitting by the lighthouse inspired me to pull out the lighthouse plates that I purchased a couple years ago and create a coastal tablescape. I live by the Intracoastal Waterway just North of our lighthouse and see the light each night as the beacon circles the area as a guide for boats.
