Tarpon Springs is located in Pinellas County, Florida. If you’re thinking of taking a trip to Tarpon Springs, expect to pay about $15-$20 for all-day parking. If you’re worried about finding a place to park, know that all parking is either metered or parking lots. While you’re out enjoying the sights be sure to pay attention to the different times each shop is open, since hours may vary. The Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks open at 10:00 am and stay open till 10:00 pm. Most of the shops also may open around this time and close around 6 or 8 pm. 

 

While visiting Tarpon Springs, be sure to wear comfy, cool clothing, such as shorts, a t-shirt, flip flops or sneakers. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen because the weather there is hot! Be sure to bring a camera to take pictures of all the amazing sights.

Dragons

Dragons,

I will be talking about a mythical creature called a dragon. I will be explaining what they look like, where they live, and what they eat. First I will be talking about what they look like. Typically a dragon has a body like a snake with legs. His head is the shape of a horse with horns and spikes. Their eyes are bigger than a pencil.They have sharp spikes all along their back. And finally they of course beautiful wings like a bat. Now I will be talking about where dragons live. Dragons typically live in caves in the forest or on the side of a cliff. Since they have wings and sharp claws it makes it easy for them to fly or climb up the cliff side. Finally I will be talking about what dragons eat. Dragons eat meats and sometimes plants. They find the plants and other animals in the forest. They can also find Mountain Goats or Lions on the side of cliffs.I hope you enjoyed reading and learning about dragons. I also hope you learned new facts reading the things I shared.

Recycling

Recycling,

I will be telling you about what I learned reading 2 articles with different opinions on recycling. The first article was written by a man named  William .F. Shughart who thinks we shouldn’t recycle as much as we do. The second article was written by a man named Michael Kraft. He thinks we should still recycle.

The first author, William .F. Shughart, thinks we shouldn’t recycle as much as we do. He thinks this for many reasons. One reason is the trucks that collect the recycled glass cause pollution which is bad for the environment. The second reason is that we waste water when we rinse out the things we want to recycle before we put them in the recycle bin. The third reason is that it cost less money to make the the object brand new than to recycle it. “The truth is, however, recycling has a cost, a big cost.” says Shughart.  

The second author, Michael Kraft, Thinks we should recycle. He thinks this for many reasons. He thinks this because americans put way too much trash in landfills, which is very wasteful. The more trash we put in landfills, the more we pollute the earth around it. This is why Kraft thinks we should recycle still.

I think after reading the two articles that we should still recycle. We don’t have to recycle as much as we use to because, I don’t want to hurt the animals or earth around the landfill. That is why I want to still recycle.

Dogs

Dogs,

Dogs are one of the best animals in the world in my opinion. Some people think dogs need a crate and a bed and a bunch of other stuff. But, all a dog really wants is all the love you can give it. Dogs are amazing animals and do so many things. They help police officers, help people with disabilities, but most of all they love. They love you no matter what as long as you treat them right. There are a lot of dogs in this world without a home and loving family. That is why some dogs can be very aggressive even if it isn’t their fault. Dogs just want love and they need you to give it to them. 🙂

How To Make Slime!

So today on my blog I will be sharing with you how to make the perfect fluffy slime. First get a glass of hot water and to it add about 1 tsp of borax and mix well till dissolved. Then set that aside for later and to a fairly large bowl add 1/2 a cup of white PVA glue. After that add another 1/2 cup of shaving cream. Once done that add 1/2 cup of foaming hand soap and mix well. Once mixed add 1 tbs of cornstarch so that when you play with the slime it holds its shape. Now (Optional) add in some food dye. Mix all together and know for the fun part get the borax mixture and add 1 tsp at a time until slime. When you take it out of the bowl it will be super sticky so work it with your hands until no longer sticky. Enjoy playing!
