Our incredible vacation continues here at Anne's house in FL. Two more days before we hit the road again. Yesterday's venture to Orlando and our swim with dolphins was just amazing. Kristi's dream came true, and then some. We all swam with the largest dolphin at Discovery Cove, Capricorn. Effects from hurricane Ida were supposed to cause t-storms and rain all day, but by some wonderful happenstance, we had sunshine and perfect temperatures. The heavy rain and wind did come, but not until we were safely back at Anne's and could sleep to the sound of the rain. Heaven!
It's Veteran's Day today and surprisingly, Florida students do not have the day off, they go to school and participate in a special day-long program of education about the service all veterans have given to our country through the years. There are commemorations in local parks, all attended by students. Really a wonderful program. Given the day off, students would most likely be at the mall or playing computer games. This way, Veterans' Day is what it is all about.
Today is a day of rest and maybe visiting Anne's office to meet her co-workers, with a little shopping thrown in, and tonight we will take Anne and David out to dinner to thank them for their incredibly generosity during our visit.
Tomorrow is the day we take Kristi to Busch Gardens in Tampa. She can hardly contain her excitement. Us, too! White tigers, alligators, fun rides, etc await.
Friday we will be on the road again until Tues, Nov 17. Along the way back we will stay in North Carolina, see the Outer Banks, and spend several days in Chincoteague, VA, and see the wild ponies.
A lovely sojourn so far!
