Pics from Florida!

This is belated, but here are some pictures from the Winter Fluorine Conference in Tampa last month:


You KNOW you’re living it up when your hotel has a river with swans in it! These guys are pretty vicious too – I was paddleboating in the river and tried to pet one of them, and it tried to bite my hand!


 Every night, there was a social mixer in one of the hotel suites. Everyone went there to unwind and chat; it was a fantastic opportunity to network and make connections.


Did I mention fluorine chemists can drink?!?!?


View of the resort from a hammock on the beach. There is nothing quite as relaxing as sitting in one of these in the warm tropical weather, cocktail in hand, feeling the ocean breeze.


Seagulls are awesome.


 Of course, this was a chemistry conference, so there were poster sessions and presentations. This is a slide from a presentation from one of the senior scientists in our group.
