Today was a travel day but since the resort we were staying at this past week allowed their patrons to stay until afternoon after we checked out, we were able to enjoy the water slide, lazy river, pool and hot tub for a little longer. I actually went down the slide a fourth time and this time my father in-law took a picture, so I have proof that I did it.
We enjoyed a picnic lunch after a wonderful time in the water, then decided to take a hike along the jetty. Glad we did, because we got to see some pelicans up close, watched a bunch of people fishing and on the way there we all got to see the feral cat colony (two of the cats anyway) as well as a whole bunch of vultures.
It was a good day of travel, relaxation and sightseeing. We saw an aquarium at the Cocoa Beach Gift Shop, had some frozen yogurt a little ways down from there at a place called I Dream of Yogurt, and eventually ended up at Summer Bay in Orlando.
My daughter discovered that there was a movie playing at 7pm by the pool, so she and Grandma went and checked it out while I unpacked and dealt with a key that wasn’t working for the first half hour. After that I joined them and we watched The Jungle Book (the 2016 version) before bringing my daughter back and tucking her into her Grandma’s bed while I finished unpacking. For the first time in ages she fell asleep in moments. I expect she will be pretty tired each night this week with all our Disney trips, so hopefully she will be getting some good rest while we are here. Looking forward to a fairly restful day at our resort tomorrow as well as getting some planning done for our trips to Disney. For now though, I’m going to bed and hopefully sleep in for the last time until possibly Friday morning.
Until next time, keep dreaming and never give up.
