Well the forecast was for thunderstorms so Dave headed off to Kennedy Space Centre while I stayed back to do the washing.
|Space Shuttle - Hall Of Fame.|
By the time Dave got back I was really relaxed - After 4 Margarita's :)
So of course I had to get him one too:
|A lovely way to spend the Arvo!|
Yes I did suffer from drinking in the sun - but what the hell, you only live once!
The next morning it was off to Disneyland, as we only had 1 day we chose Animal Kingdom as it had rides & animals:
The day started off pretty good, I even went on a ride with Dave!!!!!!!!
Then he went on a tame Rollercoaster:
|Then he wanted to go on this one|
But he didnt't get that far as his cart got stuck here:
For 30 to 40 very long minutes in the 100 degree heat!!!!!!!!! I was beside myself on the ground. Nobody came to tell us anything. They just closed the ride & sent everyone away.
Relatives we ringing to see where family members were - I couldn’t do that we only have 1 phone!
A lady beside me spoke to her husband, he was stuck in the tunnel - they got off first - so then I knew Dave was obviously on the cart stuck outside!
When he eventually came out - he was fine & more concerned about which ride to do next - I was not impressed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The shine had definitely gone off Disneyland, We took the safari walk to look at some animals:
|A very big boy|
After that we decided to head off, we had McDonalds for lunch just up the road & spotted this Caravan:
|very spacey looking|
Then we decided to go to Gatorland:
This was well worth the money, hundreds if not thousands of Alligators & Crocodiles:
They even had white ones, they are not Albino, they have a special gene they shows up about every 100 years!
|Very weird looking|
They had heaps of wild birds in the parks as well:
Even these fella’s: Emu’s
It was a great afternoon - & no rides :)
Oh except this one but even Dave thought this one could be a bit hairy:
|This is over a croc pool|
|Ahh they made it - alive!|
The next morning we left Orland at 5am & headed to Georgia, It was a pretty uneventful trip just a bit of Fog:
We passed these buses on the way - we think they were taken to be renovated - we hope!
|No windows or seats!|
I had forgotten about all the billboards that they have on the highways - its amazing:
|Just Amazing how many there are!|
We pulled up at a little place called Locust Grove in Georgia just after lunch & decided that was it for the day & found a motel.
After checking in we decided to have a look at a Western Store that we had been reading Billboards about for the last 20 mile! It was called The Horse Store.
Wow - it was great! Lots of Stuffed animals:
Lots of Belts & Boots:
|A wide selection of Bling Belts|
& Saddles Galore:
We had the best time just walking around looking at everything - we also brought ourselves a Boot Bag to keep our boots in :)
Then it was back to the Motel for a few Bundy’s, I tried to do the Blog but it wouldn’t save anything. So after a very frustrating couple of hours gave that up as a bad joke!!!!!!!!!!
Well I am writing this on word document in the car as we are heading to Nashville & hopefully tonight I will be able to post it - If I have sorted it all out!
Cheers for Now,
Dave & Shell
