We left the beach and the beautiful gulf coast this morning to travel back to Orlando.  We were sad to leave North Redington beach and the Doubletree hotel there was fantastic - we will definately try and vist again.

Our trip inland took us via Tampa bay and Tampa and along I 4 route back to Orlando.  Tampa is a fairly large city which dates back to 1528 when the spanish landed there with the intention of starting a colony.  Now it is a large city and back in the 1920's it was famous for cigar making - you can still buy cigar from authentic factories.

We are staying to the south of International Drive this time very close to Disney - Lake Beuna Vista.  We have arrived safely at our new hotel.  It is a beautiful Hilton hotel which is brand new and
we have a 1 bedroom suite with a kitchen and beautiful bathroom.  Pool is great with a water slide which Emma and Paul love.  There seems to be no expense spared when Hilton made this hotel which is very new and so we have 2 rooms, a kitchen,bathroom and both bedroom and living rooms have flatscreen TV's.  The bathroom has a roll top bath - which is filled via water coming from the ceiling.  All for 89 a night - quite the bargain. 

Not the same views of the sea we have had for the last week but we can see Disney and all over Orlando from
our balcony so is quite good.  Off to Kennedy Space centre tomorrow and Merritt Island which should be good.  Hoping to see the last of the space shuttles in situ before the programme is shut down later this year.
