Ginnie Springs is one of the only dive locations in the country that allows open-water divers into the cavern at the bottom of this spring. This was one of the many locations we experienced while diving in Florida and I am happy to report that there were zero snake sightings.

I knew going into this trip that a 50mm just wasn't going to cut it, but fortunately, one of Lee's cronies on the Virgina monument by Seminary Ridge happened to be moderately photogenic . . .

note to self: buy a wider lens.

Most people tell me I'm lame, but standing where Lincoln stood on November 19, 1863 was cool . . . certainly an important part of my Gettysburg trip. I think my elementary school history teachers would be proud.

Trivia: Did you know that there is only one photograph of Lincoln delivering the Gettysburg Address? Apparently none of the photographers were prepared for such a short speech (272 words, I think . . . depending on which version you feel he actually delivered) and due to the lengthy process of setting up, most everyone missed the shot.

As I always say, when in doubt, take a picture of Julia and Matt.

Taking a break from the competition, Diane and Jake show the crowd some of their salsa moves during the "fun dance" portion of the show.
