And there was Florida…

One of the states I was almost avoiding , why you ask ? Lets see heat humidity , bugs that can lift small children , oh yes and crocodile’s ! And did I mention not so bright people , “and this week in Florida” segments you hear on the radio. Now I do consider crocodile’s as dinosaurs so I have this want to see them and this fear of them.

This started out as a work trip for Dawn and she convinced me to join her down in the sunshine state. I have always hated humidity from my years in New Jersey and it was hard to get past that. I was enticed by NASA and a visit with a friend I have not seen in a very long time.


It was great to see NASA I always wanted to go and we had tickets to see a launch while we were there…just one problem. I had only been in the state for a few days and had not got used to the humidity, another thing was there was very little shad at the complex. The NASA park was a lot smaller than I thought and like I said before not enough places to get out of the sun and cool off. We walked around and got photos of all the cool looking stuff and then went inside to see the space shuttle I was so excited.


We ended up seeing how long the line was getting for the launch and it was a few hours till it lifted off so we gave out tickets to some ( what looked like locals ) debating on getting tickets.

For the rest of my stay in the state I got to see an old friend ( Rich Latko )I had not seen in 35 years and finding out food is way cheap in the state. Twice I got the check from a dinner and twice I had to look to see if they missed someone.


The rest of my time in Florida was spent people watching in Wal-mart ( yes I had to see ) and spending time on the beach. The wife and I had a good time visiting a local pub but didn’t stay long enough to see to many “locals”.


I think it was ok trip , not sure if I will ever go back to Florida but if you had your choice Italy or Florida where would you go ?
