I was a Girl Scout leader for several years and we always sang that song, "Make new friends and keep the old, one in silver and the other's gold!" I am reminded of that at this time of year, when we "make so many new friends", with our vacationers traveling through. Often they show up because they've heard about our Free Wi-Fi, or they've heard about our delicious coffee. We've met new friends at the BeachHouse Beanery every single day, since about late December, and love hearing about their travels and their "other" lives. But as much as we love meeting new people, we cherish the ones that come in day after day and really KNOW us. So just a heads up, in case you come in one day and someone is sitting in "your seat", know that it's a brief encounter, a new and interesting story that hasn't been told HERE before. Sit down and visit with them and show them why we love our little town of Flagler Beach. We cherish our new friends, and our "established" friends. We look forward to visits from all of you, and your new stories along with the ones we've already heard and loved. Thank you to our new friends and our "established" friends!
