Exactly a week ago, we were in Tampa at the Dali Museum.

We had visited the museum's older location several years ago, but this was our first time seeing their new building (new as of 2011).

We took the guided tour first, which was entertaining and informative.

Then wandered around on our own with the audio tour.

The gardens behind the museum are beautiful, as well. They include a wishing tree, where guests hang their wrist bands with wishes written on them, and a hedge maze.

The 30th Anniversary of Steampunk Celebration

It has been thirty years since the term "steampunk" was first coined in a note to Locus Magazine in 1987 by author K.W. Jeter. To celebrate this event, on April 21st, the Tampa Bay Steampunk Society hosted an epic party at InVision Cafe in St. Petersburg, Florida.
