Lyndy! Hey, it's great to see you are looking in on the members ;) Please don't feel rushed or obligated in any way. Take your time and just walk shallow waters back into the calm flow of Paint Basket (PB). Paddle around, get back out, skim a stone, fish for shells, dip back and forth as you like like but, please visit the PB beach often 'cos, it's beauty no one should miss! ;)  :hug:
