    I never really believed it but apparently If you keep digging you come out the other side. Passport optional. Just glad they made it. I have seen Journey to the center of the earth.

    The pier became pretty busy just before sunset. People selling all kinds of stuff.

    If you made it past the peddlers it was calm, just some fishermen and a few watching the sunset.

    I was sucked into the selfie frame of mind with miss fish when one of these pelicans took a poke at me. I should have known they'd like a bite of fish.

    That's what I get for turning my back on them. Their beak can hold more than their belly can.

    Too bad I'm a crap photographer. Cell phone shots on zoom don't turn out to nice but we have the memories of a stroll down the pier on a beautiful day.

    Well better than freezing my ass off up north anyway so yea, nice enough.

    More crap photography. We saw these street performing acrobats, a sword swallower on a ten foot unicycle and a magician all working for tips at the pavilion near the pier.

    A nice enough room but not worth 300usd per night even if it is on the beach. We were a few floors up with a small balcony. I think this was the Hilton on Clearwater. I had to ask for a microwave oven from one of the managers in person. He never delivered so I talked to a cleaning lady I met an hour later in the hall. She had it in five minutes. Of course I tipped her well. We had left over ribs in the fridge from the night before and needed to have some brunch.

    We still had fresh shrimp from Publix as well so miss fish worked more magic.
    We each had a rack of ribs from the night before and of course fish is not a pig so leftovers on the balcony for brunch. We hate to waste food and it makes no sense to stuff ourselves.

    I could eat this in the air, I could eat this anywhere. On a boat or in a train, on the roof or in the rain. I would not eat balut and spam. I do not like it, fish I am.

    Well not that deserted. Almost time to blast off. If you like rockets see the Kennedy Space Center thread.

    That pelican on the right looks mean. Good that the Fish did not get eaten by those birds. Thanx for the pics. Cheers!

    Thanks Katie23. As I have enjoyed yours and others threads I felt as though I should contribute every now and then.
    As I stated earlier we were planning a Lao visit but miss fish got snagged up in passport limbo as they did not really believe she was a fish. So plan B was a road trip with no particular agenda other than the Kennedy Space Center. So you could say the fish winged it. We drove down to Florida so no flying fish stories this time.

    As for the pelicans the one on the right is a little pecker as he took a poke at me while I had my back turned. Note to fish beware the birds.

    PS, I have tried balut but cannot get the psychological mind set needed to finish one. Miss fish will suck one up in no time. I'm talking about the bird embryo here silly. In Laotian they call it kie louk (poor spelling I know). I think kie=chick, louk=young. Don't quote me on that though.

    I'll see if I can find some pics of the air boat and swamp buggie rides in the everglades. Most of that was with a go pro that I really don't know how to use. I need the practice that's for sure. You could say fish is all thumbs when it comes right down to it but somehow that just doesn't sound right. Take care,fish.

    This 0ne was lurking at the dock for the air boat tour. I think it was their pet but was not about to pet it. I like my crazy flipper fingers.

    The air boat tour was kinda cool. It was on the list of things to do in Florida.

    The pier is upper right of this frame, the pavilion where the street performers were is top center. The main drag along the street had pleanty of restaurants and shops. A Hooters and Ron John surf shop comes to mind. A nice place for a stroll and do some people watching. So you have that to look forward to when your to old to be spelunking. Ha ha.

    I mentioned this in the Space center thread. This place was a time share that we stayed at for several days while visiting Universal studios. 54usd per night but you had to sit through a "you can own a piece of this" pitch. The fish did not bite.

    The line for Harry Potter. For an extra 100usd you can skip this and get in the fast pass line. Save about 30 min. I learned after the first day.

    Another view of the town. Was not allowed to take pictures on any of the rides. Dont want a phone in the face should one become air born.
