Today, we spent the day at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida. Saw some unique animals up and close, and went on some wet water rides! Busch Gardens is good if you like a lot of thrill rollcoaster rides, which I do, but I try now to limit them, with being prone to back and shoulder injuries. It has a component of wildlife preservation. Lots of parrots, birds, and wild animals. As a child, around the age of 9, was when I went to Busch Gardens for the first time. I have some fond memories, of spotting the rollercoaster with the loop in it, and going on it for the first time. Going on a log flume ride with my family members. I also had a snapping turtle hiss at me, so I’m not that fond of turtles, from that experience, and it’s also where I rode an elephant! I haven’t been back until this trip, We sought out the cover shade, as often as we could! I was trying not to complain of the heat, because being only May, I knew that the really hot weather wasn’t for a few months away. When we got back to the car at 4:30 pm, and saw the car reading the outside temperature, I realize, it was then okay, to say we endure the heat of 107 F! Whoa!! Hot Day
Then we went down to St. Pete’s Forum. I had gotten a ticket for Mike to see the sixth hockey game eastern final of the Tampa Bay Lightening vs Boston Bruins. He went to the game, and I went to see Pirates of the Carribean, and for the first 30 minutes, I was the only one in that theatre room.
Great game for Mike, and I had to included this picture with the McDonald’s Box office, as he loves Mickey Dee’s!
