We miss the female friendships of our youth! We're happy with our lives, with or without husbands, but we want more. Perhaps we have moved to South Florida and miss our old girlfriends, or during our hectic child-rearing and career-building years we have not had the time to cultivate our female friendships. Now we need to set aside some time to develop new, rewarding female friendships.
The permanent collection of the Norton Museum of Art includes over 7,000 works, with a concentration in European, American, and Chinese art as well as in contemporary art and photography. Right now the special exhibits include one of Toulouse-Lautrec posters and another entitled, "The Figure in Latin-American Art."
Here's how to get your train tickets:
Go to the Brightline website (gobrightline.com). A box will come up stating that if you're a first time rider you can get two free round-trip tickets. Enter your email address and click the "Verify" button. Then book the 9:40 AM train to West Palm Beach (normally $15 each way for seniors) and the 4:30 PM train returning. Try to select seats in Coach # 3. The price will come up as $0.00.
We'll meet at the Miami train station (see the address and map elsewhere on this page) and travel together. It's a long ride but what a great chance to chat! Those who live in North Dade or Broward might want to board at Ft. Lauderdale. If you're driving, please consider picking up a few of us at the West Palm Beach station, and then we'll all chip in for parking.
When we get to West Palm Beach at 10:55 we’ll Uber or Lyft the one mile to the Museum (entrance $15). Or feel free to walk over if you're so inclined! We'll start with lunch at the museum café. Then we'll have two hours to explore the museum on our own.
We’ll need to get back to the train station at 4:15, taking the train that departs at 4:30, arriving in Miami at 5:45. Those who need to get home earlier can leave the museum earlier and catch the 3:30 train instead.
Once you RSVP, I will get in touch with each of you the previous week to ask you to reconfirm. I will then be able to reserve a set of tables for us at the restaurant.
At lunch I'll collect a one dollar $1 contribution each to offset the costs of maintaining this website.
