No kettle corn in Orlando/Tampa, Florida

Monday, February 18th, 2008

We track down Velma’s brother Matt who was vacationing in Orlando, Florida. We waste a perfectly good day going to the Universal Studio theme park, then choke down some food at the Hard Rock Cafe. Seeking some culture, we visit the Salvador Dali museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. Out of despair, we visit the Florida state fair.

Down the East Coast AGAIN

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

Off we go! Watch the video for all the gory details up till now:

In summary: we took 5 days to get to Florida and stayed in St. Augustine for about a week. We never intended to pop kettle corn in St. Augustine, but we scouted it out to see if it could be a possibility…if or whenever we decide to move or “winter” in Florida. We land in Naples and the story stops here for now.
