March 5-6, 2008 On the way to Mary & RJ's

Rick Morgan

We drove to St. Petersburg and stayed at a crowded, and pretty "messy" KOA. Then on to Naples but first made a stop at the Salvador Dali Museum. While we are not huge fans of Dali, the Museum has an amazing collection of his works and we both found the visit interesting and informative. We saw "Persistence of Time" one of his most famous paintings and also several of his "Master" works. One, "Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean which at 30 meters turns into Abraham Lincoln" was fascinating. At fist look it is a woman looking out over a balcony at the Mediterranean - when you step back 30 meters and squint the painting is one of Abe Lincoln.

We got to Mary & RJ's early in the afternoon, checked into the Naples/Marco KOA and went to dinner at the Marco Inn - Bobby Giddeon and his group were playing music of the 50's and 60's. Got some pics of Mary & RJ on our iPhone's. Pics from these two days are here.
