We are back on the boat after a very nice trip to Florida with a diversion to Georgia to see our friends Jim and Trudy. Prior to leaving, we had very cold weather and the water around the boat got a coating of ice on it.
We had a lovely two day stay with our friends and enjoyed a walk around their property. We saw what was left of a cotton crop.
There were 23,000 people running the marathon - old, young adults (not children), fat people, thin people, people dressed in costumes. David completed the race with very sore feet and knees. He ran through 4 Disney Parks - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios (the old MGM). At each park there were Disney characters ready to have their photos taken with the runners. I think David must have had his photo taken with all of them. The next photo is of the entrance to Disney World. Please note the time on the clock - 6:30AM - and I had eaten a cooked breakfast.

There was something fishy about this next photo!!
Gary and I were SO proud of David. Neither of us are runners or have ever been a runner. I was always a big disappointment to my PE teachers in High School as I would not run for anything. I did play field hockey but was a full back and relied on my arm strength to hit the ball (my nickname was Hercules!!).
Well, if you have 23,000 runners and each runner has at least 2 supporters, a lot of loos are needed -
Well, I will stop here as I have a lot more to tell you about our Florida Trip. So as Arnold says "I'll be baaacck".
