Happy New Year! The start of 2007 sees us still in the US in Alligator Point, Florida. The 8 hour drive from Punta Gorda goes a little more smoothly with the aid of 3 (count 'em) personal DVD players. The house at Alligator Point is literally on the beach and is one of the few inhabited houses - quite spooky. We celebrate Neil's birthday with fireworks, grits and hush puppies.
