In Part Two of The Beach Vacation, Burt returns to the Palm Beach area of Florida, canoes along the Loxahatchee river, climbs a mound built for the rulers of ancient native tribes of Florida, finds out how baseball changed to favor the long ball hitter, stops into the oldest fishing club in America and goes deep sea fishing. His extraordinary catch is documented in an actual photograph.
Travels & Traditions is a series of 13 half-hour programs in which award-winning journalist Burt Wolf travels to cities around the world, telling the stories of local traditions that have influenced us all. In many locations, he also shows how foreign traditions have influenced the city he is visiting. He reveals the relationship of marriage and food and the history of gaming. And, of course, he examines society and culture through eating.
