Off to Tampa next Mon for a whole wk with my 18 & 15 y.o. sons. Looking for suggestions on what we might do beyond our planned activities of golf, Busch Gardens, and a nearby Waterpark. What's it like shooting at Busch Gardens? Will I get plenty of pic ops there? Is my 28-200g going to perform ok for me there? Been really wrestling with my commitment to take only my D70 this time, with my little 28-200g travel lens attached, and maybe a 50 1.8 in my fanny pack while out & about. Last yr I took down too much gear weighing 40lbs in my travel backpack on wheels, including my new 200-400, and didn't like walking around with all that weight of a D2H+70-200 when we went somewhere. On top of that, as you guys probably know, I just got my new D2X, and I really *hate* to leave it at home, but, as I said, I have to force myself to go with minimum equipment this time. Hate leaving my 70200Vr home too, but only want to fly with, (shoulder through airports), my smallest camera bag, which is only about 12x8x10 in. This will probably only hold my D70/28-200g, an 85 1.8, and a 50 1.8 + accessories. While the boys have little photographic interests, I thought *somehow* I could combine certain activities we did with my interest in photography. Last yr I dragged the boys to the Miami Zoo, and Seaquarium. That went pretty well. So, besides the beach area, which I KNOW they want to visit for obvious reasons :shock: any suggestions on places we might want to visit? Places that they might enjoy, but would also offer some sort of animal photo ops? It's tough combing a vacation with your teenage kids with one's photographic hobby. Anybody been to Tampa Bay Downs? Do they allow tourists in there with their cameras? Could I get within decent range of the ponies on the track with my 28-200g? I thought that might be a fun late afternoon/evening activity. You know, teach the boys how to completely throw away (some) perfectly good money on $2 bets! So, if anyone has any other ideas, let's hear 'em! PS, if anyone can recommend the MOST comfortable water tolerant sandals you know of, I appreciate some insight there too!
