Summer fun in Florida

We are baaack... What a wonderful holiday we had! Our family was all together. We swam, ate, drank, played at the amusement parks, water parks, beaches, arcades, miniature golf, and so on. It was so much fun!
We went to Sea World, Aquatica, Busch Gardens Tampa, Altamonte Springs to watch the fireworks, St. Augustines beaches, fort and historic shopping district. We were all over the place, but each day was a gem in and of itself. Moments to be treasured.
I took 310 photos so this is only a drop. The flowers and foliage all over Orlando is amazing! The money they must spend to keep up all of the gardens along every walkway and street has got to be phenominal. It is gorgeous. There were some amazing skies. Colors of pinks, blues, oranges and big puffy white clouds. So pretty. The alligator in the above shot had to have been at least 10-12 ft. long. He was mammoth. Looks like he has never missed a meal. Sea World was a good time and had some great shows and rides. The dolphin show was one of my favorites. My camera was not quick enough to capture everything that was going on but I did get about 20 to choose from. The large stone mask was about 8' tall carved into stone at a miniature golf course we went to. The place was amazing. Very fun. They had an alligator show at the golf place. Wierd, huh?.
Anyway, I am back and will be hunkering down in my little craft room to start creating some fun stuff. I got inspired while away and reenergized. I will be looking at each of your blogs to see what you have been up to these past 11 days. Can't wait. It's like a rich dessert. Oh, speaking of a rich dessert, we ate at this fantastic seafood restaurant right on the water called "the Conch House" and they had this key lime pie that had to have been 3" tall and made from scratch. It was so creamy and delicious! That was my first "real" bite of key lime pie. Yummmm! Now I need to make one. In my spare tie, of course. Okay, now I am off. See you!
