Yep, that's me. We moved to TV in 2013 and have been very happy here.

Perhaps worth looking at.

Good Luck!

Thanks for all the suggestions. Florida to be honest is on my husband's radar, but not mine. I like my 4 seasons. I am not sure if moving inland to a lake area would make me (or him) as happy as being closer to the beach. We have always lived on the coast, but in retirement we definitely want to make a move. Ahh, decisions, decisions. Hopefully this summer we can make some road trips to some of the places on our list.
