Strawberry Festival, March 2, 2014
Two years in a row to Strawberry Festival, and we got to take the kids with us this time. They had an absolute blast on the midway.
Mount Dora, March 9, 2014
An impromptu trip to the historic region of Mount Dora. Although my wife had been here before, it was my first time visiting. Beautiful town. Very picturesque. Definitely will visit again.
Surprise free night in Embassy Suites at Crane's Roost Lake, Altamonte Springs, March 16, 2014
Annual meetings were in my hometown this year, so I hadn't planned on reserving a hotel room. One of the guests who had a room paid for by our meeting host had to cancel, but it was too late to get a refund on the room. So, it was offered to me. Special date night for Lori and me!
Office Pack/Move/Unpack, April-May, 2014
A chronicle of packing my old office in Winter Park that I occupied for 12½ years (more than half of my nearly 22 years in this building) and setting up in my new space at the Altamonte Springs building.

The finale to a day with my brother and his girlfriend visiting from Washington State, and my parents.
A Weekend Full of Storms, July 11-13, 2014
Central Florida was subjected to intense storms my entire birthday weekend, Friday through Sunday, which made for some incredible photos.
I'm using this album for an experiment. I'm generally known for doing a little enhancement processing to my sky photos, and I have no doubt I'll continue to do so in the future. However, I realized the untouched originals from this weekend were already pretty dramatic, so I uploaded them as is.
The reason I normally touch up my sky photos is because the images usually don't quite convey how I felt about what I was seeing with my own eyes. So, even though the plussed versions might not be an accurate depiction, they do represent what my eyes felt they were seeing. Other than the occasional instances where I decide to dramatically alter an image for artistic effect, you'll see that most of the sky/cloud/storm photos I post aren't overly enhanced compared to the untouched photos in this album.
A Bit of Fish and Fowl at SeaWorld, July 27, 2014
A wonderful afternoon at SeaWorld. We saw several shows, and this album features two: Nature Live and Blue Horizons. Okay, so dolphins aren't fish and we also saw a sloth which is neither fish nor fowl! Close enough for this album.
Florida Aquarium, August 24, 2014
An enjoyable day at Florida Aquarium in downtown Tampa with family including my brother, niece, and nephew.
Daytona Beach, November 18-20, 2014
After five years, looks like this is the last trip to Daytona for a while. Next year's annual meeting is in Destin, FL.
Thanksgiving in Tampa, November 26-28, 2014
Managed to arrange for all of Lori's immediate family to gather at my parents' house for a splendid Thanksgiving dinner.
