Wordless Wednesday: Rawr! Dinosaur World, Fla.

With a college degree in “rocks and dirt”, as I like to say, I have a thing for dinosaurs. Sunday I had the opportunity to visit Dinosaur World in Plant City, Fla., located between Tampa and Orlando, just off Interstate 4. If you’ve driven that way, you’ve seen the Tyrannosaurus rex standing by, attracting visitors.

What a fun place! I felt as though Jurassic Park was alive. The dinosaurs don’t move but they look pretty real, or at least what my perception of a real dino looks like.

I plan on a more in depth post about the trip but in the meantime, enjoy these snapshots. And thanks to Dinosaur World for hosting me that day!
