Disney and St Augustine

Hello all

We have had no internet for about a week now which feels very strange! But also good to be away from that.

We had 5 days in Disney which were great (very busy though). As we stayed in a Disney hotel they do these “magic hours” which means the parks are open earlier or later for hotel guests- one day we had the option to stay until 2am! I am not one for rollercoasters, which is why I love Disney so much- so many fun rides- Soarin’ is my fave, where you sit in a sort of chairlift, and get lifted up in front of a big TV screen and the film shows all parts of California (also you get the smells of things like the orange groves or pine trees as you “soar” over them”)- so gentle but also amazing. We also managed to get caught in some spectacular heavy rain storms (and we took a poncho with us, only to leave it in the suitcase and then the car- we only had it with us one day when we needed it!).

Then we drove to St Augustine, which is further up the east coast of Florida, and spent a lovely couple of days there. We stayed right in the centre by the old town so we could walk everywhere. The town has a lot of history, and a caste/ fort which we walked around. Plus loads of veggie (and even vegan) dining options. Plus gourmet popsicles (ice lollys). Look at the website and guess how long it took me to choose! Hint- I am terrible at decisions!

Right, well we are in Savannah now, so off for a little walk around the town (and I got very excited when I saw that there is a Paula Dean shop here! I do not think I would ever cook anything she makes- she made oatmeal and added butter and cream to it, so I think maybe it is the novelty of it!)- so catch you guys later.

  1. Disney! I love Disneyland so much. I am one for rollercoasters though! I agree on it being amazing whether you are an adrenaline junky or not!

    Gourment popsicles sounds good and a perfect way to combat the heat!

    Glad to hear you are having an incredible time! 🙂

    1. Andy was not going to have one, and I took so long choosing that he said he was hungry and had one after all!!

  2. I’m sat here trying to decide what flavour I’d have now…hehe. Glad you’re having a great time! Disney is so magical no matter how old you are.

  3. I’d definitely go for the coconut coconut variety 😀

    That ride at Disneyland sounds beautiful, and right up my street. I’m a bit of a granny when it comes to rollercoasters etc. and I much prefer the gentle rides. At Alton Towers the best I could do was the lazy river type ride, and I didn’t dare go near Oblivion or Nemesis. I do like the look of Air though, which has opened since.

    Keep on enjoying your holiday!


  4. Sounds like you are having a fantastic holiday. Hope it’s making up for the christmas disappointment.
    Could you bring back some sunshine with you please!


    1. Thanks- yes it was certainly worth the wait.
      I will try with the sunshine although at the moment we are being followed by a hurricane.

  5. I have seen a lot of oatmeals with butter and cream lately, probably a new trend? 🙂
    Great you enjoyed your time there, sounds like a very nice trip!

  6. Love Disney 🙂

    Paula makes some SERIOUSLY gross food. Watch her on the food network if you get a chance. Everything is butter, butter, butter with a side of cheese, bacon fat and more butter.
