Greetings: Hello There Fellow WordPress Blogger! If somebody could write better, concise and clear, why not create a link to that site? Here is  [Kuklamo’s World] wordpress blogger’s take on Cypress Gardens: Her description of the place and aw much is the Entrance Fee.

Mental Graffiti 1: ” Habang libo libong mga katutubo ang nag-iiyakan, ako’y patuloy sa aking kasiyahan.”  Sakit ng Kalingkingan ay Dama nang Buong Katawan.

GPS calculated arrival time was 11:31 P.M.

Mental Graffiti 2: Lucky eh… I had a digital camera, eh. I don’t have to use “sardine’s sauce” applied  to my hair like gel as proof.

While on the road, running the suggested speed limit of 70 miles an hour, one question from my little boy kept on humming into my brain. It was the question he asked after reading the sign we left behind.

AttentionQuestion:guys, who will bring firearms, knives or weapons of any type inside Cypress Gardens Theme Park? ” Who will?

kitchen knifeWe have kitchen knife but what is the reason to bring it inside the park?

We drove along 75 North. We followed the arrow towards Valdosta. On the right that could be our Tallahassee exit if we decided to go there. But Tallahassee, Florida was not part of the plan. So we say, no to Tallahassee this time, maybe the next  time.

Wanna go to Tallahasse? That's the exit!

We were cruising along U.S. Interstate 75 and we made a pack (the MOTHER, the SON and me), not to stop until we crossed the state line.

We should stop in Valdosta, Georgia’s first Rest Area: Visitor’s Information Center.

We missed the ” Welcome To Georgia State sign but we were able to take a snapshot of this one.

dark of nightNo idea what county was that but I know, Georgia was one of the original 13 colonies of the states that revolted against British Rule in the American Revolution. Georgia’s capital is Atlanta where Civil Rights Leader was born.
