:welcome to Crochetville, Shirley! When I read that you are in Inverness, I about broke my wrist just to get my mouse to get into this post! How is the weather there? I have always dreamed of a lovely trip to the Highlands ever since reading MacBeth. When I was a senior in highschool, I had to write a term paper about where I would be in 10 years. I wrote that I was going to be an orthopedic surgeon practicing in Inverness...and since we just finished reading MacBeth, I was smitten with the idea. Now that I bored you half to death, I am sorry to hear about your daughter. I had a client who had that in her right arm. (I am a home health nurse---a certified nursing assistant, not a surgeon:sigh ) Well, I hope you enjoy your holiday. We all look forward to seeing you around here more, Shirley. We are all one big happy family here:hug

Well, it depends on what you like to do here. . .we are partial to what's in our own back yard, Sanibel Island. One of the best shelling beaches in the world.

Siesta Key is beautiful, though!

 

What sort of things do you like to do while you are here?

Welcome to Crochetville! I live about an hour from Orlando, not far from Cocoa Beach. I've always wanted to go to Scotland, my great grandmother was Scottish (a MacDonald lol) and I guess I've inherited a lot of it. Oh well enough jabbering on my part. See you around C'ville!

Bonjour Shriley!! :waving Welcome to Crochetville from a former Michigander now living across the channel in brussels belgium! Scotland has been on my place to visit list for 3 years now....one of these days I will make it over there!

Even my 4 year old nephew is nuts about Scotland - at his pre-school class he draws pictures of the Loch Ness Monster....they actually look like some "real" ones that I've seen floating around the internet! :lol

Hi from the west coast of Florida.

 

As for Beaches, don't forget Fort Desoto, it is considered the #1 beach in the nation.

Of course, Florida is one big Beach.

 

Enjoy yourself both here in the forum and in Florida.:hook
