Florida Fun

The in-laws decided to try their luck with being snowbirds this year.  Kerry's parents got a condo on Daytona beach for 3 months.  They picked a good winter to get out of dodge considering how cold it has been.  We visited for 5 days and despite starting of with some rain, we managed to fill our time with some great outings and some beach time.  

Day 1 we hit Universal studios and checked out the Harry Potter theme park.  Day 2 was solid rain so we filled it with some shopping and indoor sightseeng at the Ponce De Leon Marine Science Center.  Day 3 was spent at Kennedy Space Center.  Day 4 was a beach day and a climb up the Ponce De Leon lighthouse, which is the second tallest in the nation behind Cape Hatteras light.  Day 5 we went to Blue Springs State Park on the St. John's river and got to see an amazing amount of Manatees that are seeking warm water for a few months in the Blue Spring run.
