Florida trip Pt 2 - next morning...

Saturday morning we got up early so we could hit the Salvador Dali museum in St Petersburg before we headed out of town.

Dali has been one of my absolute favorite artists since I was a small child & saw "Santiago El Grande" in the Lord Beaverbrook Gallery in New Brunswick on a family vacation and was so mesmerized it took them about an hour to drag me away from it... Anyway it is always a treat to go there (this was probably my 5th or 6th visit) and see so many masterworks including "the Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory" and "the Hallucinogenic Toreador".

They have a very nice gift shop and I bought a ton of cards and lusted after this way cool watch/pin, part of a collection of very nicely done replicas of jewelery that Dali designed. I bought the small book on his jewelry and have promised myself I'll order the watch when I get some extra money (like I'll ever have any extra but no doubt I'll figure a way as it is just too cool!)
