    Where exactly is Port Wahington... I hear that name a lot. Is that where a lot of the residents live, as opposed to the touristy spots? Is it on the west side of 30-A? We stay mostly in the Seacrest area.

    Where from

    We're stuck in Texas until we get our daughter in college. Then we're heading for SoWal. Purchased last year and it is terrible just seeing pics all the time!!!!!!!!!

    Grew up in IL. Spent time in Eastern KY; Gainesville, FL; Wilmington, DE; and Fort Collins, CO ---- family is in IL though so it's sorta home.

    Love SOWAL

    Wow, I'm beginning to feel like a big looser because I have only lived in Chattanooga my whole life. Did you purchase a house or condo? We are co-owners of 2 condos but are thinking of buying a house that we can rent out & maybe someday move into.

    house in sea dunes, dune allen beach. We call it our Smurf house 'cause it has a very bright blue metal roof! Now when we visit, we just look at it and say "someday we'll be there instead of our tenants" :cry:

    At least you have a plan!

    I'll have to look for the Smurf house on our next visit (which unfortunately will be a while- we've been there 4 times since June but no plans to return until next summer :sosad:

    hey Rita, you should "join" the group (instead of just lurking :lol: )

    gotta come up with an avatar first. Will put my 13 yr old onto that as I'm nearly clueless! Everyone's got cool stuff so guess I'll see if I can get creative.
    Any :idea: s? (Maybe i could be SMURFER GIRL?) :?

    I love it....maybe a surfing smurf ?? that might be hard to find. If your 13YO is as creative as my kids he'll definitely outdo us though 8)

    I live in Tampa, Florida, but am really from Georgia.

    My grandfather and his four children built our house on the lake at Grayton Beach in 1956. It was way before anyone thought Grayton was "cool". It was just a quaint place to spend the hot summers, which we have done for all of my life. Our house was built to accommodate all the family --- cousins, aunts, uncles and my grandparents.

    I love this board and check it daily. Of course I miss the beach cam, but I"m sure that Kurt is working on that.

    OT- We have considered moving to St. Pete, mostly because of the great high school (St. Pete High). Would be interested to hear your side of raising 2 boys in SoWal vs. St. Pete.

    I'm from many places, making my home in every state from Florida to Maine. Currently, I am enjoying life in South Walton, although I am thinking about selling out and moving to Freeport.
