We had a perfect day for a cruise.   The weather was perfect and we had a good turn out - 11 Vettes.  Or was it 12?  11 or 12 Vettes !!  We met in the Big Lots parking lot by McDonalds at SR54 and US 41.  John H had a special route mapped out for us so after a few pictures and a driver's briefing, we headed out.  This must be one of the best cruises we've ever taken.  John did a masterful job of taking us through back roads that were absolutely "old Florida".  Canopy roads, roads through Florida pine woods and past farms.  Fabulous 2-hour + cruise.  For nearly the entire trip, we were able to keep our string of Corvettes lined up together on the roads.  Lots of gawks from people along the way.  When we arrived in Winter Haven, we circled once through town (past the restaurant) and all parked together in a parking lot about a block away.  The restaurant staff made us feel like royalty and service was terrific.  The food was incredible.  Delicious.  After eating we decided to stroll around and walk off some of the food.  Very relaxing day.  Some wanted to stay a little longer, so we split up and went our own ways for the return trip.  If you missed this cruise, you missed a really fun day.  This was a perfect example of how to enjoy your Vette.

We wanted to arrange our Vettes for a picture so each Vette would be shown at its best.
