Unplanned first day in Florida

Yesterday our family took all day to fly out to Florida. Today was supposed to be our first day to visit Epcot. However, things didn’t go as planned.

For one thing, I was not feeling well all day yesterday and today. I spent most of the day in bed sleeping. We did go out for a short jaunt at Downtown Disney to find some lunch. I ate two bites and then walked back to the hotel and went back to bed.

And then in mid-afternoon, this is what we saw outside.

Obviously we come from rain-starved California. We stood at the door going, oohhh… ahhhh…. at the gusts of rain and lightning going on outside.

After sleeping I felt a little better so we went downstairs to a restaurant that had an Australian wilderness theme. It was really cool walking down to the entrance. (Notice the crocodile on the rock to the center right of the photo.)

Here’s another view of the alligator (with its mouth gaping open) sitting on top of the rock, next to a pond.

I really liked the butter that came out with the bread.

Here’s how the restaurant looked. There was a wedding going on in the adjacent room.

We had a very pleasant dinner and I was able to eat more food… maybe 1 cup total. Yay!

Now back to bed… will attempt Epcot tomorrow…

    I’m so sorry to learn that you did not feel well on your 1st day of vacation. You must be tired from all the hectic preparation and the trip itself. Last night and this morning I prayed for your health. Hope you have a better day today.
    I like those butter alligators. They look so cute!
