Hi Everyone,

We're here and loving it in spite having spent 3 hours getting out of Orlando airport - a combination of huge queues at Border Control and equally huge queues at Alamo. Seems as tho' from 3pm to 9pm every day about 10 Jumbos arrive from the UK and create mayhem.

We spent last night in Orlando where we seem to have got into the US time immediately.

Today we drove northward up Interstate 75 to Lake City (not that we've seen a lake yet). It's a standard US town - Wal-Mart, Best Western, MacDonalds and Texaco. There's nothing here - it was very flat scenery driving up but loads of greenery.

For the afficiandos amongst you if you click on "show trip route" and then "map" you get a large scale map of where we've been .

It's 85F and blue, sunny skies - we've just got back from 30 mins by the pool - where I did manage some lengths and about 15 mins in the gym. I'm on a bit of a health trip at the moment - we've only been buying diet sodas and no Baby Ruths.

We've got the spa/hot tub to look forward to and then dinner at a local restaurant where we're likely to pick up a fantastic meal for 10 a head - prices are a steal here at the moment.

We haven't taken any piccies yet and we're also not sure where the connector lead is in the luggage anyway.....but maybe next time.

In the meantime here's some pictures of our host

So far, so very good - we're lovin' it.

no storms
you were lucky - a few days earlier and you would have been delayed by storms. They covered the whole east coast from Florida to Maine. I was holed up in a snowstorm in Vermont, while the internet said that it was 25C in the UK, and missed my connecting flight out of Washington.
Have a wonderful trip - and think of me: my sabbatical involves slaving over a hot computer writing a book!
