With the weather getting a bit better and No1 son back to normal we visited Aquatica today. Lessons learnt from our visit to Wet and Wild so this time we took minimal items so had no trouble with just 1 locker.
For the last couple of days I’d noticed that the front brakes on the car we’re vibrating. Just as I pulled off I4 today I was met with a lovely grinding noise and on checking there was a deep groove in the o/s brake disk. So, after a visit to the park we went back to the Airport to change the car. Hopefully I won’t break this one.
For lunch we popped out the Friendly’s on I-drive and ‘Oh dear’ it didn’t go well. We ordered 6 ice-creams. 10 minutes later 2 arrived. Another 5 mins and 2 more arrived, and a full 10 minutes later the last 2 arrived. By this time the first members of the party had finished eating and I was starting to get annoyed. Then to top it all we went to pay and stood at the till for another 5 minutes whilst 6 separate members of staff walked past us as if we didn’t exist. I had to resort to sarcasm to get attention – Asking a member of staff if they could see me!
We splashed out a bit this evening and went out for a Chinese. There is something about the food here, it just tastes so bland so it was nice to be able to taste some flavour. I would recommend the Golden China, 7777 West Irlo Bronson, Kissimmee. Service was great, cost was $96 for all 6 of us and we all reported that the food was great. At the end they give out fortune cookies which included one word of Chinese for you to learn. It gave the family a laugh as my word was, ‘Cheap’ – Most appropriate given my financial reputation :-)
Financial Report: Major purchases today were $96 on the evening meal, $33 at Friendly’s and more money on gifts. Current balances are $301 in cash, $441 on the prepaid card and $250 in traveller’s cheques.
