After nearly a week in Miami,|
JPF is starting to climb the walls. *g*.
Actually, the wall was part of the Sports Challenge Test which also included a|
Baseball Pitch Radar, Foot Track, Virtual Hoops and sports medicine displays.
The High Wire Acts & Feats of Balance exhibit featured a SkyCycle,|
Seesaw Bench, Balance Rail, Limbo Bar and Gravity Playground.
JPF takes a spin on the Center of Gravity exhibit.|
Next up was SMITHSONIAN EXPEDITIONS: Exploring Latin|
America & the Caribbean, the first exhibit in the nation to
result from the Smithsonian's Affiliations Program.
AAAAAH! DB is bitten by a nine-foot|
Olmec head! Is there no place safe?
Checking out the remains of Mayan King Pakal.|
"Hun, want to have ribs for dinner tonight?"
"Hey, did you read the curse? It says that all who view the remains of|
King Pakal will be crushed between giant stones... ba ha ha ha!"
(DB quickly exited the display area.)
Along with owls, ospreys and bald eagles, The Falcon Batchelor Bird|
of Prey Center also has a selection of native and exotic reptiles,
such as this Albino Burmese Python that JPF was fascinated with.
Everyone knows how much she loves snakes. *g*
Here's Louie, one of the Bud Life Lizards, telling|
JPF how the frog who says "er" stole his job.
Before leaving the Museum, we stopped at the digital Portrait Studio|
to have "Leonardo" sketch our picture... not bad for a 'puter artist.
