Florida Vaccation ~ Sea World

One of the highlights of our Florida Vacation was Sea World
The Dolphin show

and the Shamu show were spectacular, as always.

Clyde and Seymore were quite humorous.  I've never been to Sea World around Christmas time.  The festive touches added to all the excitement.

Florida Vaccation ~ Gatorland

Gatorland  is definitely the  place to go, if you want to see some big alligators.

Something fascinates me about these dangerous and scary creatures.

You wouldn't catch me playing in the alligator pen,  but it is amusing to watch these guys putting on a show.

This one even smiled for the camera!

Wrestling a gator, definitely wouldn't be my idea of fun either.  I wonder how much they pay this guy?

We picked a really chilly day, to spend at Gatorland. We weren't expecting Florida to be so cold. 

Most of the rest of the days of our vacation were quite a bit warmer.

Florida Vacation ~ Lake Apopka

My sister lives next to this beautiful lake called Lake Apopka

It's simply beautiful, and I love to go there and try to take in an alligator sighting or two. 

The other residing wildlife is pretty spectacular too.

Florida Feathery Friends are quite different from those residing in Colorado, so I quite enjoy seeing the variety.

I even managed to catch a few, mid flight.

Tropical flowers are quite spectacular as well.

Bird of Paradise putting on a beautiful display.

Florida Vaccation Continued ~ WonderWorks

If you have children who love buttons, touching things, and climbing on things,

WonderWorks is the place to go.(I didn't take many pictures, it was dark in there, and most of my pictures turned out blurry)

Steve really loved the basket ball hoop.  It measured how high you can jump.

Along with the interactive play,  WonderWorks includes laser tag, and a harness ropes obstacle course. 
Definitely a unique experiences.
