First of all we 'd like to thank
Geocities for giving us the opportunity to create our first home page.
A year ago, we bought our first computer and never thought we would be
able to create our web page that soon.
In fact we learned everything about
computer from scratch and we've had a lot of fun doing this page and
hope that you will enjoy it a lot and come back to visit us.
According to our

But before we go any further let us tell you
a little about ourselves.
We, Fabrice and Corinne, were born in
a region called Picardie in the North of France
(about 150 km North
Eversince we met in 1982 traveling has
always been part of our lives. So between vacation travels, we moved to

We spent 5 years in this beautiful region and eventhough we enjoyed life
there, we couldn't resist the appeal of another sunny place
Florida in 1992 , thanks to good American friends (Michelle &
Donnie) met 10 years earlier, who invited us for their wedding.
We fell in love with the endless white sanded beaches, and the climate,

Hi ! I'm
Enzo the "kid" or should I say the dog of the family...
I am a
Bearded Collie and Corinne and Fabrice brought me over with them
to share their American adventure.
It's really hot here, 'cause the sun always shines. But they let
me stay in the house and I really enjoy the comfy soft carpet and the
I have a big yard
where I can run and play with my ball and sometimes I get to swim in
the Bay. I have lots of friends in the neighborhood. There are two
invisible dogs behind a fence next door and a nice lady German shepherd
on the other side.
Hey ! I have to say, life is pretty good. Even if sometimes I miss sleeping
under the stars like I used to in
