I loved the shopping center across from the beach where you can shop and get your hair done, as well as eat almost any kind of food. I didn't have a car when I first arrived, but the local trolley was fun to ride, if you don't mind waiting. I didn't. I was also so impressed at the medical facilities, because my husband had a heart attack when he came to stay for the last two weeks. The Gulf Coast medical center was fantastic and we laugh now that we are glad we were there because according to experts, if you have a medical procedure, have it done where they do it all the time everyday. Yeah, baby they had lots of practice and it showed because they were so fast and so efficient. Two Stints in 45 minutes without invasive surgery, just a routine procedure for them. It was wonderful to meet such great people. I can't wait to go back this winter. I love the gulf, the sunsets and the people in Northwest Florida. God is good.
