Re: vacation to florida

Jim: Thanks, I printed off your message so I can use it for trip
planning...I'm a great believer in an itinerary, no matter how loose. I
think at this point, we'll be in Florida, rested and ready for anything
from Aug. 2 through Aug 11, driving the other 4 days. Loosely at this
point, I think we may be in Sanibel area Sun Aug 8 and Mon. Aug 9, but
we have a lot of time to play with. The kids would love to meet you, as
would I, so we can thank you in person for the lovely star fruit you
sent last year. Is there anything from Iowa you would like?

Bring your shades, hats, and sunblock. You'll need all

hour or two of <br>Orlando are Harry P. Leu Botanic Gardens in Orlando,
Bok Tower in Lake <br>Wales, University of South Florida Botanic Garden
in Tampa, and Selby <br>Botanical Garden in Sarasota. If you get to
Miami, Fairchild Tropical <br>Gardens in Coral Gables is great. I would
put all of those on a &quot;must <br>see&quot; list. If you get to
Sanibel, be sure to tour the Edison and Ford <br>complex in Ft. Myers.

&quot;gardens&quot;--Busch [Tampa], Epcot [Lake Buena <br>Vista],
Cypress Gardens [Winter Haven, if it's open again] and Sunken
