Remembering Veterans

We visited the Veterans Memorial County Park near us in Tampa. It has a picnic area near the canal, but no one was around cooking burgers to beg for since it was a Monday. (rats!)

It also has old tanks and other war stuff along with a memorial wall of local men who died fighting in WW II. The helicopter was cool with the shark teeth painted on it!

More Florida Nature

Everyone who has a TV has seen the insurance gecko, but have you had fun chasing a real live lizard like I have? Boy, they are FAST!
They are all over in Florida, and I've heard some of my friends actually caught them. Might be a tad too quick for me!
