Unlike the freezing waters at the Fire Island beach, this ocean was warm enough to swim luxuriously until my sunburn got the best of me. It may be the last time I go to the beach this year, unless I get to visit my grandma again later on this winter. Of course, the beach is only a tiny facet of the W. Palm Beach experience, the most important part being the City Place Shopping Center: the most beautiful collection of commerce and pink brick to grace the Atlantic coast. I’m happy to be back in New York with its beautiful fall weather even if my tan is incomplete. As always, if you like my cute bathing suit, feel free to shower me with gifts.
