Florida - December 25, 2005-January 2, 2006
These pictures were taken during a trip to Florida
in late 2005 and the first couple days of 2006. They were taken with
my Olympus C730 Ultra Zoom digital camera. Most images are shown at a
resolution of 640x480, but are available in full 2048x1536 size by
clicking on the links after the captions. From the drives, most of
the pictures are just roads and signs.

We left Amsterdam and headed south at 6:10 PM, but it was too dark for
any pictures. Things were rainy and foggy and busy in New Jersey, but
by midnight, we were near Washington, DC, and things were clearing up
and the traffic had thinned.

We left Naples just after 9 and started north. Just one picture: we
passed some parade floats on I-75 and US 301 [Picture]. The rest of the ride was quick
and uneventful. By midnight, we were into southern Virginia.

Williamstown after 9:30 AM. The ride back covered 1498 miles in 24
