After we spent Christmas in Georgia, we headed down to Orlando, Florida for a couple of days of relaxation in the Sunshine State. An extra hour or two was added to our drive down due to the high volume of crazy College Football Fans. One night we walked around Orlando's Tourist District (somewhat similar to the Las Vegas strip) We even grabbed a little icecream in the 80 degree weather. Before heading back to our hotel we were approached by a man carrying a small alligator advertising for Gator Land. (A couple of posts back- in the summer Spencer and I went to the "Alligator Farm" in St. Augustine-- one alligator farm of large lazy reptiles is enough for a lifetime.) Speaking of Gators, on our way home we made a pit stop to Gainesville, FL- HOME OF THE SWAMP and the FLORIDA GATORS. This was probably Spencers most enjoyable part of the trip. He doesn't really care for the Gators, but he DOES love football.
