Going North on Scenic Highway A1A

We left the Indian casino late this morning to avoid rush hour traffic on the roadways around Miami.  We moved over onto scenic highway A1A (the coastal version of highway 1) somewhere close to Boca Raton. 

What we saw on highway A1A was a lot of upscale housing development, very little access to the beaches, and some very well landscaped yards and roadways.  In no particular order, here is a sampling…….

We drove through Ft. Pierce and saw some murals painted on buildings.  We found a Walmart, and decided to spend the night there.  We then took the car and drove back to take pictures of the murals.  We only took one picture of this one………….

Another building had several murals on it, and the building itself was colorful, but the murals were some of the best that we have seen.  Note that the painted roof tiles were hard to distinguish from the actual tiles!!  There are several shots of each one……….

During our travel today, we went back and forth between highways 1 and A1A, each time crossing the intercostal canal.  Several crossings had drawbridges, and we got caught twice.  In Ft. Pierce, we were near the front, and caught pictures of the boats going through,,,,,,,
