Visiting the Delray Beach area of Florida finds a traveler navigating gated community after gated community. Along the coast, the small downtown is a prime place for cafes, restaurants, and boutiques. It gives us glimpses of the past, best shown in The Colony Hotel.
But in between the impressive homes along the beach and the secret communities that exist beyond iron gates, the original state of Florida can be found - in the form of tropical flora. Beautifully bright flowers, enormous tropical leaves, various species of palm.
When it all comes down to it, these bright colors are the reason this town and these houses exist here in the first place.
