Just spent the night here on our way home. Should be home soon since there isn't much between here and home.
Heading home now. Stopped in Cherokee for the night, they happen to have a casino here. We ended up after several hours of wandering around the casino. We are now even for our trip (the last three casinos we stopped at we ended up walking out with more than we went in with.) The Indian casinos treat us much better than Vegas did.Read more
Stayed in Rocky Mount and visited relatives in Nashville for a couple of days. Hadn't seen my relatives here for almost 30 years, it was nice to catch up with them. Heading up to Virginia to visit the last of my relatives.Read more
Got back from a three night cruise on the Enchantment of the Seas through Royal Caribbean. It wasn't as relaxing as I had hoped, they had too much to do over the time we were out. The first day we docked in Nassau, Bahamas. It poured during our time there. There was so much water coming down that the rats were coming out of the storm drain up into the stores and sidewalks. We were able to walk around town and down to the beach between rain squalls. The next day we dropped anchor at Coco Key, an island owned by Royal Caribbean. It was beautiful when we arrived but the wind kicked up and we had to leave a couple of hours early. Then we had a rough night back to Cape Canaveral. Overall, I think I'd go on another cruise. Next time a little longer so we could relax more. We did end up with more money from the casino on the ship than we started with.Read more
Too busy and tired to update this over the past week. We had a great time with Katie this week while she was here. Visited Universal Studios over the weekend for two days. Lots of fun there, more to do for us older kids (older than 8.) Got soaked on all the water rides but had a nice 80 degree day to dry out. Spent the next four days at Disney World. Fun, but Universal Studios was more fun. Spent about seven hours each day at the park. That's a long day walking around and standing in line. But we slept well each night. Visited Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. On our last day, we decided to go back to Magic Kingdom for a few more rides before leaving. Dropped Katie off at the airport today at 4:30 this evening and headed over to Cape Canaveral to spend the night. We board our cruise ship tomorrow morning for three nights. No updates until we get back Monday.Read more
Still killing time waiting for Katie to get here in a couple of days. So we decided to stay on the beach in Daytona Beach, nice view overlooking the ocean from our balcony. Walked the beach, caught up on laundry and went on a tour of the local chocolate factory. We're heading to Orlando today to start our week there.Read more
Spent the day at Blue Springs. Went on a St Johns River boat ride, saw lots of birds and alligators. After the boat ride, we walked around the springs and saw manatees swimming around the spring. The spring water was nice and clear, the river water looked like black tea. There is no way to see anything in the river. After walking around Blue Springs, we headed towards Tavares to spend the night and decide where to go next.Read more
