-Florida August 2003-

This trip was our first vacation as a couple. We got to visit my family (except for the Marine) and satisfy Allison's thirst to see the ocean. August is definitely not the best month to visit Florida, but we didn't shy from the outdoors - visiting the Parrot Jungle, Busch Gardens Amusement Park, the Lion Country Safari, and the Morikami Japanese Garden. We're planning a return visit during a non-summer month soon!

We missed the Marine on our visit but we took this picture for him
