I’m being a very bad blogger, because I haven’t actually had much downtime to write a regular post lately. I also don’t have many ideas for what to write about, but I’m still working on that. I do still take a zillion pictures everywhere I go, especially when the place I’ve gone is very entertaining.
Here’s an example- over the weekend, Amelie and I went through the Holiday Fantasy of Lights at Tradewind Park in Coconut Creek, Florida. Basically, they’ve set up all kinds of amazing Christmas and holiday themed light displays along the drive-through portion of the park. The light show is open from 6pm to 10pm all the way to January 3rd, and it’s $14 per car. They also sell 3-D glasses for $3 a pop to enhance the lights, because the three-dimensional objects in the park are not 3-D enough. This is hilarious.
The Holida Festival of Lights came to my attention because it’s visible from the Florida Turnpike, and it turned out to be significantly larger than I expected. It’s no Christkindlmarkt, but it’s still a fun little thing to see. Some of these photographs came out a little fuzzy because of the lighting and the moving car, and also because I couldn’t open my car windows that soon after they were tinted.
This traffic thinned out quite a bit once we got past the admission booths.
Severus the Christmas Sea-Horse… has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Just in case you forgot we’re in Florida, here’s a manatee.
…and penguins to suggest coldness even though it was still at least 70 degrees at dusk.
This fellow had a very convincing ho ho ho.
I’m not entirely sure what a snail has to do with the holidays, but we both liked him.
I’m not convinced that the 3-D glasses would have made this any cooler, but hallucinogenic drugs certainly would have.
This bear is epic.
Ice-skating bear. Check. Not as great as the previously noted epic bear though.
We had a lively debate on what this is supposed to be. It sort of looks like a ginger-bread penguin.

This is a good way to end any story.
