    andrea,

    thanks, that is what I thought also, but I'm staying at the Marriott Ocean Club, they told me they are almost sold out of rooms and to expect everything to be crowded, because everywhere will be. I have to say I was expecting things to be a little busy, but these comments made me nervous

    well they are telling you it is sold out because they want you to hurry and make a reservation.

    Thanks andrea,

    i don't know what bill was saying either, i send him a personal message also, i'll see what he has to say, his dates were a little messed up also, i'm sure just a typing error. Again, thanks for you quick reply to my nervousness.

    danadog,

    Thanks, I don't normally eat early, but I heard of many good early bird specials, so this being the case, i will try to hit some of those places

    SunworshipperII,
    I agree, as long as I got a spot somewhere, that will fit the 3 of us, I will be a " happy camper "
