Two Museums and a Visit Today

We left the hotel at 9 AM and set out for the  Bonnet House Museum & Gardens.  The history of this musem is detailed at .  A docent gave us a tour of the buildings where Frederic Clay Bartlett lived with his family when part 2 was a tour of the grounds.  It must be very difficult to live in South Florida in the summer.  It is not the heat, but the humidity.

From there we drove to the Ft. Lauderdale Antique Car Museum which featured a collection of Packards which were luxury cars manufactured in the early days of the automobile.  The cars in th museum were in pristine condition and were actually operational.  The cars stay in the museum and are rarely if ever appear at car shows.  Packard went out of business in 1958.

Finally we drove up to Delray Beach where we visited with my father-in-law Will Shapiro for the second time.
