Hubby and I are Gulf Coast devotees - you get better sailing (if we ever get around to it) better sunsets and it's slightly quieter. On the Atlantic coast you have such exciting places as Miami and of course Palm Beach, which is where we were headed for a quick visit. Palm Beach is so swanky, they even laid on a rainbow over the shopping mall.
And in downtown, where we sat at a pavement table and ate bone marrow with orange marmalade, Asian spiced chicken wings and seabass, the Christmas lights were still on.
And looking out of our hotel window, we could almost think ourselves in Italy.
