Baggage collection and immigration were a doddle and we were soon in the Hertz Shuttle Bus to pick up our rental car for the return trip to Orlando. We were given a Chevy Equinox and after setting up the satnav we were on our way
The miles float by as Peter sets cruise control on our journey north and west. As we approach the Orlando area we are hit by a couple of fierce downpours which are not unusual and are very localised and over very quickly. Sure enough a mile or so later there is no evidence of any rain at all.
We approach Eagle Point and the villa we will be staying in for the next 5 nights. It's 2 doors down from the villa we stayed at in 2009 and is very much the same. All on one level (it would be called a bungalow back home) it has a large Kitchen/Diner, TV Room, 3 Bedrooms, Laundry Room and its own Swimming Pool. We drop our thing and head back out to a nearby Walmart to pick up staples such as milk, juice & wine. On our return I quickly take a dip in the pool and the cool waters are very refreshing.
We decide to have an early dinner and try somewhere new. We head to Pointe Orlando and a restaurant called Maggiano's Little Italy
We arrive back at the villa around 8pm and as Peter is now driving we have some wine here rather than with dinner. We find a channel on TV that is showing repeats of The Golden Girls but both soon find we are dropping off (We both feel like we should be residents of the complex where the Golden Girls live) and retire to bed early.
