Florida 2012

   

  My November 2012 visit to Florida's Gulf Coast featured an eclectic mix of historical sites, art galleries, museums, and beach communities, with frequent visits to wildlife sanctuaries and centres.

Major destinations were Miami, Naples, Marco Island, Fort Myers, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, and Tampa.

Sightseeing highlights, part from the numerous nature preserves, included the Edison and Ford summer homes in Fort Myers, the Ringling Mansion, Ringling Museum of Art, and Circus Museum in Sarasota, and the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg.

The links to the Pictures Files are below the Sample Images.  A Route Map and Tables of Contents are provided below that, both in on-screen and in printable forms.
