We had our first familial visitor last weekend. My Dad was in Orlando for a carwash convention and made a side trip out to Tampa (about 1 1/2 hours away). He and a colleague of his spent the night then we took them out to Fort de Soto. Debi and I had never been but had heard a lot of good things about it. Fort de Soto’s North Beach was recently chosen as the #1 beach in the U.S. Unfortunately I forgot to take my camera, so this borrowed photo will have to do:
It’s an amazing beach, and that’s not all there is to see/do there. There is, in fact, a Fort, too, along with a great bike trail. The best part – the only cost is the tolls to get there – about $0.85. The sand is remarkably fine and there is a lot of it. We’ll definitely be going back.
On a different note, if you’ve been following Ben Stein’s movie-making efforts with his anti-evolution flick, Expelled, you should check out this NYTimes review, which I think does a great job of summarizing the film. (Update: eSkeptic has even better reviews.)
