On Sunday, David took us to some Verne related locations around Tampa, but first he took us by a historic Tampa hotel.
A street named after Jules Verne? Maybe...

Jules Verne Ct.
is located near Ballast Point Park.
Ballast Point Park was known as Jules Verne Park until 1920.
Can you spot the 3 errors in the signs text?

Jean-Michel, Michel, Rick and myself visited the Salvador Dali museum in St. Petersburg.
