Gaps will be filled as I arrange things.
Last night I had a change in plans, I decided that I would go back to Orlando after NASA instead of Hollywood Beach. While I am in FLorida I want to do a few things I cannot do at home.
I can sit on the beach at home so thought what have I always wanted to do - Swim with dolphins. So it is all arranged that is what I am going to do!!
I have booked a great hotel with fab reviews that also has a decent pool for me to laze at when I can!
The trip seems to be coming together.
The other attendees and myself are getting to know each other via our Facebook Group. We are going to have some amount of fun once all together. What a great bunch of people. They are all from various backgrounds and different experts in their own field!
