JB1 Any More in my case it is local Florida attractions that become my reluctant Vacations when old Friends Visit. I have to show them a good time and a Boat Ride up the River is only good for a short time. So off we go to the same old attractions I have been to many times before. Of course they are new to my guests. One nice thing about living near the Cruise Capital is the last minute discount cruises. BTW something I haven't done in a while. By placing your name on their list they call 5 to 14 days in advance to fill a Cancellation Cheap. The last thing Cruise lines want is a vacant or half vacant cruise. The shorter the notice the cheaper the cruise. I have been to the Caribbean enough times to know it is a wonderful place to visit but not the best place to live. I have also been in almost every country in the S.E. Pacific & S.E. Asia including Mainland China in Feb of 1981. What many people don't know is there is a bridge from Hong Kong to the Main Land. In January of 1981 I saw the Pope John XXIII in Mania. The Beaches of Micronesia are beautiful even when some have BLACK sand. My last trip there was in 1995 so it has been a while.
