SEASIDE FLORIDA

A couple of weeks ago, I visited Seaside, Florida. Yes, if you are think is this where The Truman Show was filmed, you are correct.

Readers write us and say they would love to travel more but they are divorced or widowed. Most are women.      Stu is a fabulous travel partner, but I am here to tell you that I love, love, love traveling alone. It is true that I have been on my own quite awhile and traveled for work.  Over time, I got used to eating in restaurants by myself (I always took a book at first), and have experience hailing cabs and negotiating airports.
