We got up and had a wonderful free brekkie.   Ash even had a waffle shaped in a mickey mouse head !!!  We had an appt at the other hotel to listen to our timeshare speel, and then went off to Epcot Centre at lunch time.   It was great!!   The weather was coolish and there were hardly any people there.   We didn't have to have long queues and could just whizz through.  Epcot is more "Sci-techy" on energy, future etc etc.   Then there is a huge area, which is different countries.   We had been told to choose our country and then book for supper, but we didn't get to that section until supper time, so of course everywhere was booked up, and we ended up having MacDonald chicken nuggets and chips.   Ash is still shaking her head in disgust at having to have MacDonalds in Disneyworld!!!    We cant put photos in yet, but will find a place where we can, so come back to these at a later stage.

We went on a lovely Finding Nemo ride, and afterwards there was a statue of Bruce the shark.   The mouth was open, so you could stick your head out and have a pic taken.   I was so chuffed (looove Nemo), and went round the back to have my pic taken.   There were quite a few people taking pics, and one lady said to Ash ..."Oh sorry, do you have a kid back there who wants their pic taken".   Ash grinned and said "No not a kid ... just my Mum!!!!"    She giggled about that for about 5 minutes!!!!    (In fact, she is still laughing, and thinks it will be her party joke!!!)

Got home at about 10ish after getting lost again.  Some twit on the highway hooted at me (and high beamed) so I got rattled and missed my turnoff.   Luckily Ash is clever and reversed all the instructions (like 42I East, became West etc etc), and hey presto, we found our way back after a few U turns!!!!     I could live in America, I am such a good left hand driver!!!!
