If you are looking for a slightly different way to record your travels photographically, I recommend infrared photography. There are several ways to obtain an
Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo has been one of my favorite places for many years. I volunteered as a Docent and as a Keepers’ Assistant many years ago. When we moved farther east of Tampa it was just too much of a commute to make on a regular basis on top of my 9-5 job so I gave it up. But I still like to visit every now & then, especially in the winter & spring months when the animals are more active! Lowry Park Zoo is a relatively small zoo
After a week in Maine, Andy saved one of the most iconic spots in Acadia National Park, Bass Harbor Head Light, as the final stop of our epic trip! After an afternoon stop at Asticou Azalea Garden (Part 11) and
On the last day of our week in Maine, after spending the morning in Wonderland (part 10), we had some time, so we decided to stop by an interesting garden we had passed several times in our travels around the area. Asticou Azalea Garden is in Northeast Harbor.

There is a part of Acadia National Park that is very popular with visitors and locals. The massive granite & basalt rocks of Schoodic Point exemplify what Maine is, in my mind! The Atlantic Ocean is right there splashing up against
After getting stranded (temporarily) on Bar Island (see Part 2), you would think we would stay away from Bar Harbor, but no, we spent some more time there. There are a lot of restaurants around the harbor and we tried several of them. After we made it across the water that was quickly covering the sand bar between Bar Island and Bar Harbor we headed directly to the Fish House Grill for some lunch.
