New York to Miami - Heading South, Orlando, Tue, 2 Jul 13

Orlando

storm 28 °C

Sleep in day today. Bliss! We wandered down for a late breakfast at about 9am and leisurely ate our meal without looking at our watches and racing to get on the bus. Arranged to have breakfast in our room tomorrow because the dining room opens at 7.00 am and we have to be on the bus at 7.45 am which doesn't give us much time.

Our hotel.

Boring blog today. We caught the trolley bus down to the factory outlet centre. 25 cents each way for seniors. That's us! Just as we hopped on, the bus started to take off and then the driver jammed on the brakes. I went flying. Luckily one of the wooden bench seats stopped me or goodness knows what damage would have been done. I think I am going to have a very nice bruise on my upper leg. There are hundreds of shops down there, but I didn't think they were all that cheap. It was all a bit overwhelming and a storm was coming so after a couple of hours we caught the trolley back to our hotel.

As we had a late lunch, we decideve afternoon tea and save ourselves for dinner. We had a dunkin doughnut and coffee. That was our last
American "delicacy" we had to try before coming home. It wasn't too bad at all. For the last month, the Aussies have been complaining about how bad American coffee is, but we had a latte and it was very nice, though I should add here that we are definitely not coffee connoisseurs!

On the way back to the hotel, we came across a golf warehouse. YIpee! They had Footjoy gloves for $3.99. I pay $20+ for them in Australia. Unfortunately, they only had medium sizes, not small, but I bought another brand for $12.99, which was a bargain too.

The rain has stopped and the sun is out and it is quite warm and humid.

Had a relaxed couple of hours and then went down for dinner. Phil had a lovely steak and I had a nice chicken salad. Last day tomorrow. Heading for Miami,via the Kennedy Space Centre. It has been really nice to have a relaxed, do nothing day.
