Back Home Safe and Sound

To Tampa and back safely---here are the stats:

Route: Dothan, Bainbridge, Tallahassee, Perry, Cross City, Chiefland, Homosassa Springs,Tampa.

Distance: 348 miles---about 30 miles shorter than the I-75 route; 6 hrs., 15 min.

Highest price for gas: $4.09

Sites visited: Tampa Aquarium (the pic at the top was taken from the third floor observatory toward the harbour); Indian Rocks Beach; International Mall

Fireworks: 15 minutes show, from Channelside, watched from Elizabeth's living room window.

Wake up time: 7:00 a.m. EDT---when Alexander arises, everyone arises!

Best sound: Alexander's giggle

Best sight: Elizabeth's beautiful smile because she finally feels good!

Memorable meals: around the Castro table, with Alexander tucked in for the night.

Wines enjoyed: Red Belly Black, Australian Shiraz, 2005

Best times: girl time with Elizabeth while the guys vegged out in front of the umpteen inch, flat screen, LCD, hang-on-the-wall, surround sound, whatcha-muh-call-it.

A few pics:

Worst sight: it had to do with a man and a thong. I've got pictures.

I love the pics! It looks like you all had a great time! Alexander looks like a little man now! I'm glad Liz is feeling better.
