Florida Suntan Club

As the weather cools here in central Florida, sunbathing becomes a pleasurable pursuit. The sweltering temps have subsided and the Silver River is swamped with members and their guests in this sub-tropical resort. Come early as the best spots are claimed quickly.

I love your wildlife and it's diversity. Living in an outside environment really gives you a first hand appreciation of how small we are.

I just found that out after Hurricane Omar left us tossed and without power for a week.

Bonnie: never received anything in snail mail. Did you send it to the address on my website?

I recall the hurricanes of '04...no power for two whole weeks in Aug. left me pretty testy in the heat and humidity.

Gardening will also give you a new appreciation...there's an entire universe down there under our feet.

Sharon- yes- I went to your web site and used that address as a mailing address. Also, my email address has changed as our server changed.
New email for me is :
luriaslure@gmail.com

I sent you some photos- will you be able to get it from that address?
