Where's the Beach is the second, of three, in this series. While visiting Florida in May, I was inspired by this little community in the town of Boynton Beach and found it fascinating how only a few people still resided there over the summer instead of going back north. There was rarely a person to be found and it felt like this community was in a "bubble." This is a study of the town in a little two-inch bubble book.
