THE AWESOME AND FUN MIND TRAPPED ESCAPE ROOM

I received compensation for writing this review. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own.


Hello all,

We all love keeping busy during the summer. But when the weather is scorching hot like it has been lately, I like to find an indoor activity to do. I am so happy I recently got tickets to try an escape room from Mind Trapped Escape Room in Palm Harbor. Oh my, this place was a lot of fun!

I had went to one a few years back in Pigeon Forge, and I hated it. I walked out I was so frustrated. The place was so poorly run, and I was with a giant group. So I thought I knew what to expect, but that wasn't the case. I was so pleasantly surprised with this one.

First off, we got to do the escape room with just our small group. Let me tell, that makes all the difference in the world, and it makes it so much more fun. The people I encountered who run the place are very professional and friendly. The place is so clean and nicely decorated. They even have puzzles for you to play with while you wait. But we didn't wait long!

They presently have 3 escape rooms available. They are working on more to come soon. We got to do the mob informant! My group of 4 was escorted to our escape room, which was a small room with chairs and a casket.We were told the back story on Paulie the mob informant, and how we were to try to solve why he was killed by finding clues throughout the room. There clues were used to unlock drawers and boxes where there were even more clues! They were never ending and definitely made us use our brains to figure them out. There was a large screen fixed to the wall with a countdown timer so we knew how much time we had left to figure this out. We had 60 minutes. The last clue we found was the one to unlock the door and escape. 

If we needed help at any time, we were given a HELP sign to hold up to the monitor. Okay, we did have to do this, but only twice. Don't worry if you do have to leave for any reason like to use the bathroom, because they do give you a code to open the door if need be. I really liked this escape room. It was a lot of fun trying to figure things out with my group. I don't want to give anything away, but this particular room had a few very awesome ways we found some of our clues. I highly recommend this place if you have never been!

Mind Trapped Escape Room is located at 34254 US Hwy 19, Palm Harbor. There number is 727-754-5705. To play it is $28 per person. I am looking forward to going back and escaping from another, I'm thinking of the one with the serial killer and the cabin!

AN AWESOME SNORKEL MASK BY OBLIVISCAR

I received compensation for writing this review. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own.


Hello all,

I don't know about you, but this Floridian loves the water. I think most of us do, that's why we live here where we are surrounded by it! And one thing we do love here is our water sports. There are so many to choose from!


With so much sealife to explore it's no wonder we flock to the water. I have seen many dolphins, all kinds of fish, and sea turtles. But getting under the water is the place to get a better view! Swimming down by the beautiful coral is where the most interesting species live.


My son has recently took up snorkeling and loves it. He said finding the right equipment at an affordable price is very important. So I'm glad I got my hands on this great snorkel mask for him. It's by Obliviscar and comes with many extras.


It is a seaview 180 degree full face mask that's an anti fog mask. It also comes with earplugs, and a waterproof case for your phone or valuables. It has a great anti leak technology. It's is available for $32.99 on amazon through this link - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BKYXCN6 - it makes a great gift!

FLORIDA WILDLIFE TO BE WARNED ABOUT

Hello all,

Florida is one of the hottest spots when it comes to vacation destinations.  And I'm not just talking temperature wise! There is just so much to do here. But amidst all of that fun, we come into contact with wildlife we don't usually have encounters with. Here is a guide to some of those creatures.


1. In Florida, the Bobcat appears statewide. It makes its home in swamps and forests. It can be recognized by its triangular pointed  shaped ears and bobbed tail. They are much bigger than the ordinary house cat,(twice the size) but much smaller , for instance, than a panther. It feeds on small animals and birds. They usually hunt at night, and don't sleep much , about 2-3 hours a day. We saw  a mother and its cub running near us at a local park, and it was very scary how the mother kept her eyes on us. We left quickly. I have also saw a few lurking in my neighborhood. Though they're not known to attack people, still keep your eyes open when out in nature, they are very stealthy. Just earlier this month a Georgia had to fight off a bobcat with her bare hands. So keep that in mind, they are wild animals and stay safe!

2. If you go out to enjoy nature, also be on the lookout for fire ants. They are small red ants that have a very painful bite that causes itching and swelling. The fire ant mound looks just like small piles of white sand. Sometimes they are so small you're not even aware you stepped in one till you feel the bites. If you do get bit, washing the affected area then applying ice helps. Beware, these things are everywhere. A fire ant mound is pictured below.

3. If going to the beach is on you're agenda, then I should mention stingrays and jellyfish. Stingrays have flat brown bodies, a long tail that has a spine, venom and a barbed end.  They can grow up to 7 feet in length. Stingray season runs from April to October. This is when they come into to warmer waters and bury themselves in the bottom sand to hide from predators. They are usually present 3-10 yards from shore.  So what do Floridians do to avoid getting stung? We do the stingray shuffle, of course. Instead of just running and sloshing through the water, shuffle your feet instead.  It sends vibrations through the sand that scares away the rays. If you do get stung go to the hospital immediately.  Its venom can cause a drop in blood pressure, increased heart rate, dizziness and shock.  Do not remove the barb yourself, let a doctor do that!

FLORIDA WILDLIFE TO BE WARNED ABOUT- JELLYFISH




4. Jellyfish are in all  Florida marine waters. They are usually more on the Atlantic side and in the Panhandle.  They can be up to 2 feet in diameter.  they have a mushroom shaped cream colored or translucent bell with long thin tentacles.  Florida has several species that do sting.  The stings leave red streaky welts that last for up to 2 weeks and causes severe  pain, nausea and headache. If stung    remove the tentacle by scraping with a credit card. rinse with vinegar or apply a baking soda  and saltwater paste. Then go home and take a hot shower then apply an ice pack  If an allergic reaction happens, go to the hospital immediately. Oh, there is an old wives tale that says you should urinate on it. Don't do it! That makes matters worse.




5. Finally, we should discuss alligators and crocodiles.  We've all read about recent attacks involving these animals They  mostly live in freshwater environments and brackish waters, but have been found in marine waters. Their mating season is from  April to May. Never feed them or swim near them, especially at dusk since that's their feeding time. When you feed them they become more aggressive because they no longer fear us. It is illegal to feed them in Florida. They can run fast, up to 9 mph,  but not very far. The running zigzag myth is just that, a myth. They are also good at climbing and can climb a chain link fence. They can grow to be very large, 10-12 feet in length.Their choice for prey is usually based on size, so please keep children and pets away from waters edge. There have been many alligator run ins this past month. So please be cautious. This is there mating season, so this is the time of year when they're mostly out and about.

6. Crocodiles are usually found in the north end of south Florida. They live in saltwater and brackish areas, but have been sighted in freshwater areas also. They can grow up to 18 feet long. Their snout is more narrow than the alligators. They will eat anything that moves. There are a lot more alligators than crocodiles, and crocodiles are considered endangered. Conflicts between them and humans rarely occur because they are shy creatures. Recently we have run across Nile crocodiles which are not native to this country and are much more aggressive.

So please  be aware when you're out and about, and use caution. Enjoy the outdoors and all that Florida has to offer.
