30th Anniversary

Today is the 30th Anniversary for Kevin and I.  As I mentioned in my last post we would be staying at the Gaylord Palms Hotel.  It's a Hotel with an enormous atrium roof to house 3 areas that represent various places in Florida, with all their exhibits and rich plant life.  The Hotel and grounds are on 4 and a half acres and it is beautiful and so pleasant to stay, or walk about and listen to the sounds of the many waterfalls, see the incredible plants and trees there or visit the animal exhibits.  It's easier to let the pictures speak for themselves.  Suffice it to say Kevin and I had a wonderful time and would really love to go and stay here again.
