Pam Bergstrom

Welcome and hello from Jacksonville Beach, Florida! I'm Pam. The Blam. I'm a recent import to North Florida from the lovely land of Washington State by way of the Florida Keys. I grew up in a cozy boating town better known as Annapolis, Maryland and try not to venture too far from the coast, if that's not already abundantly obvious.
