    We stayed in Cape San Blas, Fl on the Gulf Coast for the month of February, 2011 and really enjoyed it. Beautiful, quiet, serene and dog friendly beaches.

    There's a wonderful quilt shop in Winter Haven called Heartfelt Quilting. Very nice staff and a large selection of fabrics. They also have a wall that's a kitchen with a fridge, oven, and sink. They have a fun class on Tuesday nights where they cook. I was very impressed with everything about this store when I visited it.

    Are you just going for a visit or to live?

    So happy for you! We are going in 2 weeks. Have been wanting to go for 40 years, and all 4 of us are going to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday.

    What part of Florida are you heading to?

    I was born and raised in Dunedin. What a small world.

    Heck, you should time your next visit when we do the Highland Games.

    I still get misty when I hear Scotland the Brave. :)

    Glad you are going to South Florida. It gets a little chilly up in NW Florida in January and February. Sometimes we have lows in the teens. Lots of below freezing weather here that time of year.

    Have fun.

    Did you make reservations. We used to vacation on the gulf side in Jan. and Feb. We had trouble finding a place because most people wanted to rent for 3 months. We found we could rent for just Jan. on the ocean side in Flagler Beach. Turned out it wasn't very desireable. It was cold. We liked it around Tampa.

    The water in the Gulf is always clearer and prettier that on the Atlantic.
