  2. Hi all – we just wanted to let you know about some changes coming …

    As you will be aware, DoingFlorida is currently spread across two different sites; DoingFlorida.com and DoingFloridaForums.com. We will soon be changing this so that everything will be together under one site; DoingFlorida.com.

    The vast majority of our members and visitors already view our daily news on the main DoingFlorida.com site (or via our Facebook page) rather than on the forum. From this week, the daily news will appear only on the main DoingFlorida.com site, and this forum will shortly be closed down. We want to thank all our members for your fantastic support over the past eleven years, it has been great to get to know so many fellow Florida fans! If you would be interested in joining a DoingFlorida Facebook Group please let us know - it would be great to keep the community together - we will start a thread in the Members Forum so you can let us know what you think.

    It's the end of an era but the start of a new one and we very much hope you will join us!

    Best Wishes from the DoingFlorida Team

    Yes we have booked a mother and daughter trip!
    I really want to see the SeaWorld Christmas shows before they disappear and I wanted to do something special to thank Jo for seeing me through the trauma of last year. In spite of her own grief she's been beside me all the way.
    So we are booked for 9 nights from 7 December at PO Riverside. Booking an extra night meant we could get direct flights with Virgin and only added £30 to the cost. Hoping to use my Flying Miles at long last to upgrade us to PE.
    Now to investigate insurance and scooter hire. I feel better already!

    Great ticker Tink, oops try saying that after a few drinks. Lovely you can both get away, well needed holiday. We were saying we liked the look of PO Riverside as we have not stayed there before.

    It's lovely DD. We've stayed there before. Has a great food court. Nice walk beside the river and bike hire. That was fun - Ben was in charge of steering! There's also a carriage ride you can take to French Quarter and back. There is an unofficial website portorleans.org which is full of useful info .

    Great news Tinks a much needed break after such a bad time. I’m sure you will both enjoy the Christmas festivities there. Not that we’re jealous.
