Happy New Year!


We've had a fun New Year's Eve! We drove down to Tavares, FL. to ride on a 105 year old train, The Orange Blossom Cannonball. The trip was organized by the Central Florida Steampunk Association, so it was a costume event. Our costumes attracted a lot of attention from the train employees, who all turned out to be big fans of steampunk.

I brought a basket full of little bags of coal shaped chocolates and Blaze passed them out to everyone in our group, as well as the conductor and one of the other employees. I even surprised some kids who were waving at the train as it passed by, by throwing them a bag of chocolates.

This is what our trip was like:

We are now back home, eating snack foods, and watching the New Year's Eve celebrations on t.v.
We talked about going downtown for the countdown at midnight, but decided to just relax at home.

Have a wonderful 2012!

Prefect photo opt for your steampunk group. You looked right at home on the train.
We did a similar trip but it was a Civil War train and bandits with guns on horseback attacked the train. It was so fun:)

Happy New Year!

My favorite movie:)
