Edward and Laura,

I'm sharing these photos of Elaine at Marineland because it occurred to us that this is a really nice, special thing to do with the kids. Marineland is 13 miles south of St Augustine, so its definitely not more than a day trip away from Brunswick.

Elaine had a simply wonderful time, though she was apprehensive at first. (She's the last person in the world I expected to really get into the this.) BTW, the other woman is Shannon Miller, a former Olympic Gold Medal gymnast who now lives here but has ovarian CA as well.
