Cloud Watching... and other neat things to do in Florida...
The National Weather Service is a mandatory digital stop if you are running amok during hurricane season. Actually, it's mad useful no matter what you are doing (LOL).
http://www.myflorida.com is the official portal for the State of Florida. We are clicking all sorts of links looking for places to go, things to do, government officials to bug with our New York questions (like how to get a FL gun/hunting permit and fingerprinted for a FL real estate license - LOL).
Since I'm learning the state while vacationing with the wee people I thought I'd pass along a few other useful links...
"Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1963 as an overlay of NASA’s John F. Kennedy Space Center. Consisting of 140,000 acres, the Refuge provides a wide variety of habitats: coastal dunes, saltwater estuaries and marshes, freshwater impoundments, scrub, pine flatwoods, and hardwood hammocks provide habitat for more than 1,500 species of plants and animals." http://www.fws.gov/merrittisland/
Brevard Art Museum "is a gathering place, a visitor attraction, a landmark, an anchor, a catalyst for change; we exist to educate and to deliver a message that will encourage people to think differently about their relationship to others and the world; a center of creativity, the Museum collects, displays and interprets all aspects of the visual arts, particularly women artists, in ways that relate to the past, to the present, and to the future. The Brevard Art Museum is a community cultural bridge." http://www.brevardartmuseum.org/

Did I mention we are having a lot of fun in The Sunshine State? Working on some more eye candy for ya while we figure out where to go and what to do next...
The kids have got to take their showers... Aunt Mona is coming over to take the shorties to the pool, which means I can create some more music between cloud watching and observing them work on their tans (LOL). ;-)
