    Fort De Soto Park

    Happened across a Civil War battle re-enactment this past weekend (before they started to do battle, mind you). There was a very thick fog for most of the morning, which I think helped capture the mood...

    A view of camp from one of the big guns:

    Is this in Florida? I was there as a very little kid, some time around 8-10 years old. There's a pic on my parents wall, taken of me behind the bars on a window somewhere there. I barely remember the place, so I would love to see more of this set.

    Sometimes life imitates art? Or is it art imitates life? I'll just plead the 5th, that'll be easier.

    You bet, about 15 minutes from downtown St. Pete. Here's a shot from earlier in the month I hope my kids remember as they get older that sounds a-lot like what you're describing :)

    Indeed very similar. My grandparents lived in Clearwater/Largo for 30 years. Summer vacations were spent traveling around to various places around FLA.
