Papas World – spending a week with grand daughter!

When our oldest grand daughter turned 16 –

her one birthday wish was to swim with the Manatee’s!

Since we were going to be in Florida

We made that wish come true!

Now – the second oldest last summer turned 16.

And her one wish was to see STAR WARS!

who is a big

So – we again were going to be in Florida

So we took her with us for a week!

In a State far – far away – the adventure begins!

at Hollywood Studios

Our trip was eventful – we spent a Monday – early to after closing

in the Hollywood Studios of Star Wars –

Riding almost all the rides – and seeing almost all the shows!

It was a very long day – but so worth it

You can see it in her eyes and smile!

Then on Tuesday – Sunday we had done a giant Flea Market

We took her to our old stomping grounds

The Villages – where with my brother we spent three winters

before he passed away.

At Brownwood
in the villages

We toured all three town centers

showing her everything we could

Ending up in Sumter Landing
and listening to the live band and music

Watching all the old people like us

dance the night away!

I told Sherry I really miss it down here!

At Big Bend Power Park

On Wednesday – we took her to Big Bend Power Plant Park

To see the hundreds of Manatee’s

and then on to Clear Water beach and Sand Key Park to see the gulf waters

It was too cold to go into the water – although people were in the water

But she got to walk the white sand beaches

and see the Gulf!

Thursday was a down day – pick up groceries

and she watched the first two Indiana Jones movies

as she had never seen them

and after being at the stunt show

we decided to see them on Netflex!

Friday and Saturday – we spent both days until dark

exploring 7 or 8 Disney resorts!

Animal Kingdom lodge
Polynesian Resort
The Dolphin Resort
The Grand Floridian
The finding Nemo resort

on the new Sky liner
at Disney resorts

We parked for free – and rode the Mono Rail to four different stops

And the second day we went to Board Walk resort

next to Epcot

And rode the new SKY LINER

to Four more resorts!

We parked for free – and neither the boats

the Monorail or the Sky liner

cost anything!

Sherry Tom Ella

We spent all Saturday after noon at Disney Springs –

Again – no cost!

I hope you like what you see here

and thank you for reading Papa’s World

Ella and Sherry

And Oh by the way – Ella loves to shop

And that fit right into Sherry’s purpose of life! LOL


thank you

Sadly – we say goodbye as she flies back home.

By the way – her return fight ticket – her one suitcase

cost more to check in

than the ticket for her!
