    Can't wait to go so just looking back on last year : -

    As most people seem to prefer photos this report will be more photos than words after all 1 photo is worth a 1000 words.

    THURSDAY / FRIDAY
    It all started of on the Thursday with the cases finally closed and locked about 11am and the long wait till 1pm for the taxi. Got to the Raddison just too late to see AME take off so went up to the room to admire the view.

    The view at night was magical.

    After looking at the prices from the mini-bar drinks were taken in the bar before bed.

    Friday dawned as Fridays do and we met up with the rest of our group, checked in, went over to terminal 1 where we saw our plane arrive, then had brekie. Take off was on time so it was up up and away for a great flight.

    Villa was fantastic.

    SATURDAY
    Saturday start was the usual ritual of breakfast at Dennys.
    Liz had the French toast and I had my usual Lumberjack Slammer.

    After breakfast we all went of shopping to Walmart after all the girls had been there for over 12 hours and not yet spent a $. Found my Halloween costume (more later) plus quite a few other things. Off to Publix next for food supplies and back to the villa for a swim.

    Next plan was to go to Old Town to get some plaques and to see the cars. Put the order in for the plaques then went down to the cars under darkening skies.

    Only had time for 4 photos before the rain started to fall so we made our way back to the car and home for a few drinks and watch the lightning.
    Universal tomorrow so should be better for photos.

    Our little mascot, Antonia, grabbed a snack to eat while we were queuing.

    No photos of the ride as they forbid photos.:cry:

    It was getting hot now so time to cool down at the Coke stand.

    Off to Pets Ahoy. It is amazing how many types of animals they can train. Some we saw:-

    Lovely photos. I must say though that the Denny's breakfast doesn't look too appetizing. :sorry: (But then I'm so not a Denny's fan). :sorry:
