    Okay. :wave:

    My favorite holiday is Independence Day!
    I lived in Poquito Bayou (Okaloosa County) until ?81 - Santa Rosa Beach since.
    I don?t remember learning to swim but do remember the first time I met somebody who couldn?t. :eek:
    As hobbies I like to paddle (kayak), cycle (leisurely), swim, hike, travel, and read.
    I truly love this area - the woods, the creeks, the bay, the beach, the Gulf, the weather, and the people.

    I wish that everyone would come here so I could share this magical place with them and I wish nobody would come here and change it into something else.

    I was in first grade - "hey Rita, lets swim out to Duck Island" - it never occurred to me to ask if she could swim.

    Hi all!
    I am 21. And have been in love with SoWal since 2005. I have visited every year since, at least twice. I am getting married in Seacrest in April of 2009. And one day hopefully, I can live in SoWal.

    Hey Everybody.
    I am barely more than a lurker... but have been lurking for severral years. I have recently started posting a little.
    I live in the Rocket City, Huntsville Alabama.
    Recently widowed.
    55 Yrs young.
    I have a wonderful daughter named Tonya...who is a shcool counselor.
    Two grandkids... Cade an Cole,
    And ofcourse the ole man Wes, good guy.
    I have been visiting the coast since I was 6 yrs old. Which means I have seen many changes.. some good... some not so good.
    But the fact remains... any day on the coast is better than a day three hundred plus miles away.
    Going to the board and seeing the latest, has gotten to be more important the first cup of coffee in the morning.
    I would love to meet everybody... not as much as living in SoWal... but I am sure it is understood.

    By the way I can proof read what I just wrote... before I post it. After it is posted is when I find my spelling errors. My daughter would would not understand.
