Friday 5th April 2013

(Happy First Contact Day everyone.)

Ceri-ism of the day (after I asked her what she had most enjoyed about our holiday): "Pizza".

Picture of the day:
Flamingo Bay pool where we hung out most days.

Thing unexpectedly found to have sugar in it of the day: Garlic bread.

Hellen's Version

Went to Aquatica again. It was overcast and only 23 degrees and rained.

Everyone Else Version

Went to Aquatica again. There was hardly anyone there so no queues for any of the rides and slides. The water was warm, the sun shone occasionally, and we had a wonderful relaxing day. Suzy & Co. went to Gatorland.

So we're packing and getting ready to go home, and I'm wishing we had at least another week here and counting down the days until we can come back (1,095). I've put together a list of the abiding memories I'll have of this wonderful family holiday:
  • Finding that I’d packed a single table mat from my dining table at home.
  • Running from the hurricane, and Hari banging desperately on the wrong door.
  • Watching the Disney fireworks from the balcony each evening.
  • A three-hour timeshare-selling presentation which involved both breakfast and lunch, but during which Brian entirely failed to notice that he was trying to sell a timeshare to the people who already had one, and completely ignoring the person who hadn’t...
  • Jenny the ballet-dancing dolphin
  • Snorkelling through grottos with Gwen
  • Getting sunburnt so badly on my face that when my skin peeled off I looked like a zombie.
  • Hot and sour soup at China Buffet.
  • Falling in love with Windermere, even the Wal-Mart.
  • Sugar in everything, even the bread.
  • A bird stealing Gwen’s bread roll from the table when she went to get a drink.
  • Sitting on the back of a paddle boat as Hari and Clara argued about who was steering.
