Clearwaters “Dolphin Tale” makes a splash

From our Gulf Coast Vacation Rental Office in St Petersburg, FL- Even on sunny, beach vacations there is a need for indoor activities. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium is a great choice, especially with the upcoming movie “Dolphin Tale 3:D” being released Friday, September 23, 2011. The movie, about a dolphin rescued off the coast of Florida when she was just three months old, stars Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman and was mostly tapped in Pinellas County. In 2005 a fishing boat found Winter trapped in a crab trap that had cut off blood flow to her tail. She was transported to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium where they did not think she would even survive, let alone swim again. With the help of Kevin Carroll, Vice President of Prosthetics for Hanger Prosthetics and Orthotics, she was fitted for a prosthetic tail and has made a full recovery. She continues to be an inspiration for many children and adults with disabilities. Hype over the movie brought more than 32,000 people to the aquarium in July alone.

Clearwater Marine Aquarium: visit The aquarium is open weekdays 9am to 5pm, Saturday 9am to 7pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm. Admission is $14.95 for adults and $9.95 for children ages 3-12.

Gulf Coast Vacationers can now enjoy the New Dali Museum

24 years and 20,000 square feet of Dali in Downtown Saint Petersburg
Reynolds Morse and Eleanor Reese Morse bought their first Dali painting in 1943 as a late wedding gift to each other. They intended on starting a surrealist collection and ended up with 96 of Dali’s Oil Paintings. People, especially Eleanor’s father, thought they had “taken leave of (their) senses” for spending so much money on such wild art work, but they never looked at it as an investment- they truly loved Dali’s work. And thus when it came time to donate the collection in the late 1970’s they had only one stipulation- all of the art work must be kept together. Saint Petersburg was the only city willing to keep the collection in tact and opened the doors to the Dali Museum on March 7, 1982. As more works came to the Dali Museum (drawings, fine prints and photos) it was clear a larger space was needed and plans started in 2002. Unfortunately, neither Mr. nor Mrs. Morse lived to see the New Dali Museum (all 20,000 square feet) that opened on January 11, 2011, with Mrs. Morse passing away just six months before its grand opening in July 2010.

Visit all the New Dali Museum has to offer 7 days a week. ( Stop in on Thursday nights after 5pm for a discounted rate of only $10.00. Call Daudelin Vacation Rentals for information on discounted tickets (727) 289-7115.
