    Yesterday was a very rainy day, so we went shopping. Today looks better,
    but we'll be going to Magic Kingdom. But tomorrow should be really sunny
    according to the forecast. Maybe a trip to Cocoa Beach?

    Haven't used the DSLR so far, and the RX1 is absolutely awesome!

    Any tips for a good Photo store here near Orlando, the dollar is so low
    that I may look at getting myself a Sony A7.

    Over the years, a lot of local camera stores have closed. One that is
    still in the orlando area is Colonial Photo and Hobby,
    <http://www.colonialphotohobby.com/>.

    Others within 50 Miles:

    Auburndale - Marshall's Camera <http://www.marshallscamera.com/>

    Melbourne - Southern Photo Supply <http://southernphotosupply.com/>

    Daytona Beach - Beach Photo & Video <http://www.beachphoto.com/>

    Colonial Photo and Hobby. http://www.colonialphotohobby.com/

    From the Disney area, Interstate 4 Eastbound to Colonial Drive
    (Highway 50) exit #84. East on Colonial just a few blocks to Mills
    Avenue, turn right, and you're there.

    Make the trip in the middle of the day. Traffic on Interstate 4 is
    heavy early morning and late afternoon. Friday they're open until
    9PM, though. Closed Sunday.

    The other camera store is Harmon Photo, but they don't have as wide a
    selection of cameras. They do more in specialty printing and
    photographer's accessories. They have a range of Nikon and Canon, but
    not much.

    Go for an airboat ride with one of the many places that do this down
    in the Kissimmee area. You can always go to a beach. An airboat ride
    through an alligator-filled waterway is quite a thrill. Fantastic
    photo ops.

    I don't know this place at all, but it's a starting point:
    http://www.spiritoftheswamp.com/ or
    http://www.bcairboats.com/?gclid=CL-T86ng1L0CFSsQ7AodF0sAyg

    The one I recommend for most people is
    http://twisterairboatrides.com/ with a meal at the Lone Cabbage.
    But, that's further away for you. It's on the road to Cocoa Beach,
    though if you take Highway 520, though. If you go to Cocoa Beach, and
    take 520, stop at the Lone Cabbage and sit on the deck and watch the
    airboats.
