Shoot me an email please. I've been thinking of taking my kid down for an airboat ride and tour of the park. Is that what you did? Have any tips on where to go or what company you used? Thanks.


Heck - just going to Shark Valley and walking the loop is worth the drive down
A big +1 on the Shark Valley rec! You'll see gigantic gators and the view from the observation tower is worth the trip.
You know, I usually prefer my wild animals in cages or aquariums but I guess I'll make an exception this time. Have to check this out for our spring break trip.
Coming back from my winter home it blew my mind to see all the thousands of wind mills going for it from Oklahoma all the way to Wyoming. So cool, they empowered me. Cool

Think DoktaP with a mellow West Coast vibe - squared, because he is actually properly retired - and you could pick him out of even the most crowded room!

And wait until you meet Mrs. Seaquam! Cool

I'm most flattered to be compared to the good doctor, so thanks. And there's no doubt that Mrs. S is the embodiment of the term "better half." I am a very fortunate man.

Is it just me, or does this itinerary seem to painstakingly avoid Toronto? Big Grin

Well, not painstakingly, but yes, we did miss Toronto this trip. We were originally just going to spend some time in Quebec this summer, but we love the history, museums, and art-- can easily spend a couple of days in the National Gallery-- in Ottawa, so Mrs. S decided to include it as well.

Perhaps you'd like to meet up in Ottawa, or one of the other cities? On the map they're only a couple of centimetres away from you.

In real life, too. I just stepped over Quebec city on my way across the kitchen.

Working on C now to schedule a long overdue return to Montreal. You need to meet the poet in our house. Wink

As has been our habit over the past dozen years or so, the Ottawa contingent - which is back up to 2! Winner) will be hosting an offline for the Seaquams during their Ottawa visit, probably again at Play or Beckta. In the past we've had as many as 16 at the table, most from Montreal and Toronto. And, as always, all are welcome! Smile

Beautiful downtown Auckland, NZ, from a suite with a terrific view of the harbour. This is an easy city for walking, it's a beautiful sunny warm afternoon, and I've already bought a bottle of Cloudy Bay SB and a Felton Road PN for our room. I am a very happy boy. Smile

FYI, Ronnie and Lady Roots are now in New Plymouth NZ which, according to Google Maps, is a few hours south of Auckland. Probably too far for a day trip but if you are going south, they are great people - I've offlined with them, more than once!

Was in touch with Ronnie earlier. Unfortunately, they're about 5-6 hours away, or we would have gotten together. Hopefully, another time in another place.

Magic Kingdom kinda sucks. We'll have fun at Epcot tomorrow. Really good margarita bar in Mexico.

Pirque, CL. Visited William Fevre this morning, on to Santiago tomorrow. Other visits booked at Santa Rita & Concha y Toro. Biking up the Maipo is spectacular. $2/3 urchins at the market on saturday followed by lots of beef grilled over open fire. I could get used to this.

Any good restaurants?

EWR to MXP, then a train to Venice Santa Lucia station, hopped on a water taxi to hotel, and finally two box seats at La Fenice. It was a very long day but well worth the effort. The venue was simply stunning.
