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!
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!
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!
TEN IN ALL!
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.
We toured all three town centers
showing her everything we could
Watching all the old people like us
dance the night away!
I told Sherry I really miss it down here!
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!
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
We spent all Saturday after noon at Disney Springs –
Again – no cost!
They had so much fun together – making memories.
I hope you like what you see here
and thank you for reading Papa’s World
And Oh by the way – Ella loves to shop
And that fit right into Sherry’s purpose of life! LOL
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
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!
