While in the St. Petersburg area Dave and Connie visited Mullet Key and Fort De Soto.
Near the southernmost tip of Pinellas County lies Mullet Key. Mullet Key is home to not only one of America's finest beaches, it is home to one of Florida's most significant historical landmarks. Fort De Soto. The Fort De Soto Park and Mullet Key have long been, and continue to be one of the Tampa Bay areas favorite playgrounds.
This is outside the museum in the park which told the fascinating history of Mullet Key.
On Saturday Dave and Connie drove to St. Petersburg, Florida since a visit to Florida should include a visit to the beach and they had never been to the Tampa Bay area before. Here is a picture of Connie on the beach. It was kind of windy and temperatures were in the 60s so they did not stay long.
On Friday afternoon Dave and Connie went to Epcot at Disney World in Orlando. When Dave and Connie took Nathan and Nora to Disney World about 10 years ago they only spent one day at Epcot and had not seen everything. This time they went to the Canada, United Kingdom, Germany and Italy sections of the International Showcase section of Epcot.
This is the big fountain near the entrance of Epcot.
On Friday morning Dave and Connie rode the International Drive Trolley which connects all the hotels, stores and attractions, including Sea World, Universal Studios, the Convention Center and 3 shopping centers in the International Drive resort area of Orlando, Florida
On Thursday, January 9, 2006 Connie and Dave flew from Moline, Illinois to Orlando, Florida, courtesy of Dave's employer. This is a picture taken on the plane. In Orlando Dave and Connie stayed at the Rosen Plaza Hotel, next door to the Orange County Convention Center.
