Where have they gone?

(In the style of 24)… / The following took place in 1990 between the hours of November and December.. / This is a little story that another Red Bubble member called Tom Newman, who takes beautiful photographs reminded me of. / In 1990 my (now) husband and I took off to Florida on our first “real” holiday on our own. We had THE BEST time. My husband has always been a keen film…
