CTIA: The Last Day

Nokia C7: Lake Tohopekaliga

Photos taken by Ms. Jen with a Nokia C7.

Thurs 03.24.11 – On our last day in Orlando, the nice folks of WOMWorld, aka Tom Messett & Adam Woodley, took us to the Boggey Creek airboat rides at Lake Tohopekaliga in Kissimmee, Florida. While completely different from anything to do with mobile, it was a great palate cleanser after the neon thumping wiz bang of the CTIA trade show. It was very nice to get out of the composed, planned Orlando and drive south to the edge of the start of the headwaters of the Everglades to take an airboat ride through a Florida lake.
As a birder and nature lover, it was wonderful to see a sandhill crane on her nest, to see many egrets, herons, various water fowl, alligators, a water moccasin snake, and best of all, a bald eagle soaring within 100 ft of us. The shallow lake waters with tall grass, lily pads & flowers, as well as miles of flat waters, green grass and blue sky, was a delightful tonic to a techno-weary soul.
I flew home in the evening and would like to give a big thank you to Nokia and WOMWorld for a good trip filled with lovely devices, great conversations, and good new friends. Thank you.
