Hello all! I've been around for quite some time, and because you all seem like a great bunch, decided to set up an account. I've been vacationing and/or living here since I was a baby, and just north of 30 years later....we'll I'm still around. Aside from the SoWal area, my other home is Nashville. I have 7-year-old twins, a boy and girl. It it seems like just yesterday I was getting stung by hordes of jellyfish on an isolated beach in Dune Allen, sleeping in a cracker box house on stilts with wide porches and no A/C. Times have changed! I love to write and absolutely love this area's history. Always wanting to learn more. I love the beach (duh), cooking and local places to eat, swimming, preservation, fishing, and sea creatures (or whatever washes up on shore). I look forward to being a part of this community, and thank you in advance for being here!
