Fins Up from Scotland

Hey fellow Parrotheads, I'm fairly new to Jimmy Buffett but catching up all the time - going fast enough to get there, but slow enough to see! First heard Jimmy whilst on holiday in Florida in 2009... there was a great wee beach bar called Bongo's on St.Pete's Beach and a guy with a guitar was taking requests - looking down the list of songs I spotted Cheeseburger in Paradise, and having just eaten one of the best cheeseburgers ever whilst watching the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico, I requested that song! That was me hooked. Since then, we've visited Key West a couple of times, been all over Florida a few times, and went to see Jimmy in concert in Las Vegas (October 2016). Tomorrow, we leave for Paris to catch Jimmy at La Cigale. He's not that well known here in Scotland, though I'm sure we'll meet plenty more Euro Parrotheads in Paris. Fins Up!
