I am anxious to get up to St Augustine, Sea Gator. A couple of fun day trips I have enjoyed in So Flo are the Bonnet House Museum in Ft L, and the South Beach Food Walking Tour. We enjoy taking our dog for dinner right on the docks at Coconuts on A1A. This is such a nice time of year here.

St. Augustine where I live is the oldest city in the USA. You can spend hours at the Fort the Spanish Quarter tour Flagler College and you can spend hours in St. George Street hundreds ofshops and Cafes. Ripley's Believe it or Not. The Fountain of Youth take a horse drawn carriage tour or one of our trolley tours. A great place to visit.

Welcome to our newest member, "PA1" from New Jersey. If you have a chance send her a welcome message. And how was everyone's summer? Let us know what you did and where you'd recommend we visit inside the state of Florida.

I'm deleted some messages from 2009 -- we've dropped our 9 pages of messages down to 4 pages. Want to remind you that the purpose of this page is to advise members of things to do where we live. I think that we're lucky to live in Florida and there's a lot to do here. It really works for us with the economy being the way it is. Help promote local tourism and it will help our state.
