Jurassic World in 3D and Hanging with the Elks

We left Gulf Shores as the weather changed late Sunday morning, driving East through sprinkles for about 4 hours to arrive in Tallahassee, Florida. We are staying at the local Elks lodge which has full hook ups for RVs. Even though we are in the city, we feel like we have a bit of privacy tucked in the trees here.

So what should we do in Tallahassee? We were up for going to an art museum and using our reciprocal membership from the Norman Rockwell Museum, but unfortunately those museums were not open on Mondays. However, the local IMAX theater was showing Jurassic World in 3D today, so we decided to go. It was fun, fun, fun. The fly-over shots of South America made me feel like I was right there. And while the plot was predictable, it was enjoyable for both of us. A good movie to see in 3D.

After we returned home we had a bite to eat before visiting the lodge and meeting some of the local members. Bob and I had a nice time visiting. Earlier in the day we had had a chance to see this lodge's claim to fame: the furniture from Lodge #1 in New York. They are quite proud of this furniture, and deservedly so. It is almost 150 years old and is quite impressive.
Tuesday we head out to Micanopy, FL (pronounced mick un OH pee) on our way to Bradenton. Weather is supposed to be rainy for the next couple of days, but since we rarely have been seeing rain, it's OK.
