I really wish I could go on this vacation again. It was in the summer of 2003 to Silver Springs FL., the home of the glass bottom boats! I collect vintage brochures and souvenirs from family travel destinations that were popular in the 40's-50's and some 60's. I really like any that have to do with FL, since that is were I live. If any of the places are still around, that's were I choose to go on trips.
This is the hotel I stayed in...Surprising called The Silver Springs Hotel! It was sooo cool! The man that owned it even gave me a vintage 70's post card from when they last remodeled! Ha ha! But the hotel dated from the 1950's. I just loved the architecture of the building!
Here I am in the park. Other attractions at the park, other than the world famous glass bottom boats, are animal exhibits, nature trails, and a 'safari' jeep ride.
I just knew when she looked around the audience for a victim..It was going to me. She made me close my eyes and then put this huge ass snake on me!!! I am freaking scared on snakes! But I played it cool because I knew it was going to make a neat photo! Ha ha! I am all about photo op's!!
Here I am with one of the park's favorite attractions.. The Crooked Palm. I was trying to do a similar pose, like the gal on the brochure in the top photo ! Ha ha!
This place is just beautiful!
I get soo excited when I go to these old places! Like I am about to meet John Goodman (p.s. I have a big crush on him as Dan Conner)! While in Silver Springs, went to some neat places to eat and a BUNCH of Thrift Stores! They soo rocked! Lots of good stuff!
