Winter in FL 2016 (Jan 31)
« on: December 02, 2015, 09:48:21 PM »
Some of us have started making fun plans to get together in Florida this winter and thought it would be nice to post a mention here in case other widowed friends find their way to Tampa Bay and would like to meet up and enjoy some time together.

 8) Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016
Clearwater Beach
Palm Pavilion
10:00am to ....

If you think you might be interested in meeting up, let us know with a reply to this thread and we'll firm things up as the date gets closer.

Come escape the cold! Clearwater beach is gorgeous and if you haven't been to a camp widow I have been twice and going in the first year helped me so much I recommend that too.

Will be visiting my Dad in Melbourne that weekend, going to try to make this on Jan 31st. Think it is doable. I fly back out of Orlando on Monday night....

Sure thing, Lisa. Keep us posted.

Still want to do this. I think it is about a 3 hour drive each way, but I am up for it. The only catch for me is my sister. I want to leave her at my Dad's for the day, but not sure how she will like that. LOL
