Sunday 14th September
It was still dark as usual when we woke however we took our coffees out by the pool and had a quick swim while they cooled. Once it had got light we had breakfast and were thinking of getting ready for Universal when we saw a balloon.
This was followed by several others.
They were landing in an area just behind our estate.
Excitement over, we headed off to Universal Studios.
Quick dash through the streets of New York
to the Mummy ride.
The park was very quiet and the ride was a walk on.
As we came out they were getting ready for the Blues Bros show
We met them just around the corner.
Next we were off, past the back streets
Through the candy store with loads of toffee apples
and some strange candy
Stopped at the Ice-cream kiosk for my Dipping Dots
and round to the new Simpsons ride
This replaces the Back to the future ride. Think the simulator cars are the same. As the car starts off you go down a huge drop on a coaster which was fantastic but after that the ride gets quite bumpy and non of our party were impressed and we all voted it a miss.
We then saved ET
Next it was off to the dockside for a boat trip.
We must have been unlucky on this trip because we got attacked by a shark.
Met Donkey on the way out of the Shrek show
Halloween decorations were well under way as we walked round.
After the park we stopped at Down Town for a sandwich and a look at the sights and believe me there were some sights.
Had to go back to the villa for a lie down after that shock!!
Center of the Universe tomorrow (MK)
