So did you catch the game?

I managed to stay up for some of the Superbowl, but just couldnt stay awake for it all......its on til the early hours here.

I managed to stay awake for the 'Boss' and the E Street Band who rocked in half-time

Have since found out (isnt google amazing! LOL) that the Pitsburg Steelers are the champs, to be honest I thought they would be.

Anyway, whilst watching I thought Id have a look and see what was on my Fuji camera. Blimey got loads of pics on there from Florida that I didnt know I had, must put them all on disc at some point.

This one really made me laugh (it probably wont you though)

Yep we went to visit the legend site that is 'Spook Hill' located on the Lake Wales Ridge.

This place generates thousands of visitors every year - why?

Well legend has it that many years ago an Indian village on Lake Wales was plagued by raids of a huge gator. The Chief, a great warrior, killed the gator in a battle that created a small lake. The chief was buried on the north side. Pioneer mail riders first discovered their horses laboring down hill, thus naming it "Spook Hill."

The road was paved years later and residents found their cars would roll uphill by themselves. Word spread and others came to test this phenomenon. Soon it became a major attraction for visitors.

Is it a weird phenomenon, optical illusion or the unrest of spooky spirits? Well, the legend is that it's spooky spirits

We never laughed so much in ages, try as we might nothing happened (apart from Em getting chatted up by some biker passing through)

Honestly we must have looked like proper loonatics standing on the side of the road, watching the car first go up the hill then down (driven, not in a spooky way! LOL) several times.

The lads think its an optical illusion, well if it is us girls didnt notice it!

Havent got too many pictures from Spook Hill but think a layout is a must, just to record the day and the fun we had.
