Friday 13th August

I got up about 8.00 and left Dave to sleep. I went across to the Carriage House to write up my trippie and sat outside at first but it was just too hot already. Dave joined me and we had breakfast but he still wasn't feeling brilliant so he decided to start the day gently just chilling on the balcony or by the pool and see how it went from there. I got the bus to Downtown where I spent a happy 3 hours wandering round the shops and buying a few gifts. It was extremely hot and humid! Dave had relaxed by the pool and recovered a bit so after lunch we set off in the car to the 192 to pick up the Universal and Seaworld tickets and go to Walmart's. I'd been told Walmarts stock great Halloween costumes but it was too early in the year - the sales assistant practically laughed in my face and pointed out that it's only August - she obviously doesn't know Mickey's first Halloween party of the year is on 14th September! However Dave managed to find some trainers, socks and a top so the trip wasn't wasted and we also got him some Gatorade to replenish his electrolytes!! We collected the tickets from Maple Leaf and headed back to the resort in an incredible thunderstorm!!

The rain continued for quite a long time so we couldn't go to the pool. We had quite a relaxing couple of hours reading, writing postcards etc until it was time for our dinner reservation here at the Turf Club. We sat outside on the verandah near the river and had a really delicious meal followed by another couple of bottles of "Saratoga Lager" and then got to bed quite early.

Poor Dad! Sounds like a relaxing day was just what was needed! Looks like you had a good wander round the resort too, which looks lovely. And lots of shopping too, yippee! xxxxx
