Paradise Lost
Once there was a tranquil place, at the far end of the frenzy of Palm Beach; a little oasis where you could relax; hear the sounds of the water, the wind, the birds, but still not far from the activity of Palm Beach if and when you wanted it. Then there came a great idea to the minds of the powers that be: "Let's make it BIGGER!!!" And so four new buildings came to be plunked down, one so close to the beach that, just liek in Cancun and other nightmarish places, it casts a long shadow over the beach for the whole morning. Then, they thought, let's make it LOUDER!!! So they programmed Karaoke (Japan's revenge for Hiroshima???) at the new restaurant; then they put in speakers all along the line of the beach so that you couldn't hear the surf, the wind, the brids, or even your own music unless you turned it up louder. One can only wonder what will be next.

Perhaps they'll tear down the Sunset Beach Bistro, so the last remainder of the real beachfront resort will be just a memory as well as the quiet oasis that once stood on this spot.
