Thursday- June 12, 2014

Today will be my last blog post till we're back home again and settled. Leaving tomorrow for all day travel. Then into Saskatoon for an overnight, some errands on Saturday, then picking up little Jakey and making the 4 hour drive home from the kennels.

Today we drove to Winter Haven, about an hour's drive from Orlando, to Legoland. We found it hard to find as it wasn't in our GPS and has little for road signs. We had to stop a few times to ask for directions and make sure we were going the right way, but did find it after all.

Legoland is geared alot for families with kids 2-12, but we did love the Miniland and Cypress Gardens, as being our favorite "adult" spots. The famous Banyan Tree below was planted in 1939 as a seedling. What a cool tree! Part of Cypress Gardens.

                 Lots of these cool Lego figures around the park as well!
                 And Gerry in Miniland below- with the Las Vegas set.

Be sure to check out their online park map and check out the park before you go. We also stopped for a delicious pizza lunch while there, at their pizza and pasta buffet. Weren't there a long time, as it started storming and raining again, like most of our days have been here, by early afternoon. A few of the attractions as well were closed due to the weather. The humidity has really gotten the best of us as well while we've been here- it just drains you.
I was told best time to come to Orlando to beat the humidity and heat is October- December.

We had a day spa visit at 6 pm today too- went for a pedicure with a paraffin treatment for me and Gerry had the manicure with paraffin treatment at the Venchi Day Spa in Orlando. They have a great staff and nice clean spa, if your in this area, treat yourself!

Well, that's our day- mixed in with supper at Johnny Rockets again- (another location), some final souvenir shopping and some time in the room to stay caught up with emails, blogging and the like.

That's all for me though- talk to everyone when we're back home again.
