    One of the most delightful times I have ever spent from any of my travels all over the world. Myself & my two little dogs lived in my 85 VW Vanagon, had happy hour at Bernie’s, went to the Presbyterian Church & joined a wonderful group of retired musicans every wk & re-awakened my own buried talent. LV’D…LV’D LV’D, MY VISIT.
    Wish I could live there. Great people, beautiful beaches, loads of fun!
