Where I stayed
So Vera and I took off with Jennifer and Melanie to the Tampa area. We stayed at the Double Tree Suites located on Tampa Bay. Before arriving in Tampa we stopped by Grandma and Grandpa to say "hi" and have some lunch.
We visited Busch Gardens (http://buschgardens.com/bg/) and although we sufferred through many long lines we did manage to ride all the big rides except for Cheetah Hunt; too bad, but there will always be next time. We also visited the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (http://www.seewinter.com/), which is home to Winter the flipperless dolphin. Winter became famous following the release of the movie "Dolphin Tale" (http://dolphintalemovie.warnerbros.com/dvd/index.html). The kids enjoyed it. Lastly we visited the Salvador Dali museum (http://thedali.org/home.php). Vera really enjoyed it, but it was not my cup of tea; I do not care for this style of art.
So there you have it. It was a nice getaway, which I have to thank my Vera for organizing. Next time Rebecca and Chris will be with us; no exceptions.
