Water Themes

Sorry for the lack of blogging on this trip. We've had very full days, ending with falling into bed exhausted.

Our first 5 days were spent in Orlando proper. First, the food delights... we discovered a wonderful restaurant Bone Fish Grill just across the street from our hotel. Serving primarily seafood, we ate there 3 times in 4 days, having something different each day and loving it. One of my favourites was the Bang Bang Shrimp: lightly breaded shrimp, deep fried, with a slightly spicy creamy sauce on it.

We also did 4 theme parks: Islands of Adventure, Seaworld, Aquatica and Discovery Cove. Most of you will know Islands of Adventure as the place that has Harry Potter World. It really is breathtaking. However, I think one of my highlights was braving the scariest roller coaster I've ever been on: The Hulk. Here's someone else's video of the experience:

Seaworld had some fun shows, rides and things to do like the family here feeding stingrays.

Aquatica is a water park with various water slides.

Discovery Cove is an interactive water/animal park. There is a salt water snorkeling area, a fresh water river, and a very cool underwater walk that 4 of us did. Bram got to play with his new underwater camera!
