Throwback Thursday: Vacations

We've come to the end of another wonderful summer.  While organizing my photos from a recent vacation I came across a few that were taken way back during a family holiday in Florida for February/March break in 1978 - I was nine at the time.  Here I'm standing next to one of the water-skiing areas of the now-defunct Cypress Gardens.  The birds in the background are American Coot.

Also at Cypress Gardens, I discovered a small area that sported a number of statues that included one of a dinosaur.

We also spent a few days at Disney World on that trip.  At the time, the only part of the park that existed was the Magic Kingdom although Epcot was in the initial stage of construction.  We rounded a corner and were suddenly bounced upon by Tigger who was very happy to have his picture taken.


  1. That is too cute! I am cracking up at that adorable dragon shot!!!!

    1. Thanks, my dad thought it was funny also, which is one reason why he took the photo!

  2. What a great trip down memory lane for you. That often happens to me when I start cleaning out closets and re-organizing things!
