Day 3 of Floriday!
After walking 8 miles on day 3 (according to my iPhone) and multiple blisters, we were all exhausted and still recovering form the time change. We decided to take Monday a chill out day. We went to Wet an Wild and spent the morning there.
I wish I had more pictures of the water park, but obviously I didn’t take my camera because of the wetness and the damage the wetness does to the electrical objects. Wank. There were some amazing slides there, one was called ‘Brain Wash’ and you got on a massive flotation/dingy thing that fit all four of us, plunged down a drop into a massive section that swished you from side to side. Fun and scary, I shit myself. We went on twice.
There was also something called the Lazy River, which was lots of rubber rings you got in and you slowly floated around while catching the sun. There were other rides and the centre of the park was a massive pool that made waves every so often!
It felt like we were there for ages, but had only been there for 2 hours when we decided we were done. It’s strange because it was fun, I can’t believe it was only 2 hours.
Christine and I bought a corn dog, which is not what I expected. I’ve never really thought about corn dogs, but I just assumed it was some vegetarian thing made out of corn, I think because of Quorn. Ha. It’s actually a hot dog fried inside a crispy breaded coating. On a mother fucking stick. Who would have thought?
We ate the dogs and then we left.
When we returned to the hotel, we decided to go down the pool. There was an ‘Alligator Alley‘ at our hotel that did shows about alligators every day, there was one on at 2 so we went to check it out.
I took my camera and took loads of photos of one while we were told about alligators, then asked if we wanted to hold it. I kind of felt like I had to because I had taken so many photos of it haha. It was $5 to hold it and have a photo. The money went to a gator charity so it wasn’t too bad. Also it’s a OMGPHOTO OF ME HOLDING AN ALLIGATOR FOR MY BLAWWWWGGGG.
After more swimming and a bit of sunbathing, we showered and went out to eat. We ate at a place called Cici’s Pizza.
It’s an all you can eat Pizza bar that had salad, pizza, pasta and desserts. It was okay, I was being a bit conscious about what I was eating so loaded up mainly on salad.
It was another weird experience – when we went in, the woman behind the counter said ‘Hello welcome to Cici’s’ without looking up. I discovered this happens a lot, it’s like the staff are programmed to say ‘Hello, welcome to BLAH BLAH’ as soon as the door goes, regardless of what they are doing or where they are looking. It was awkward. America is awkward.
Or maybe it’s just us moody Brits that are awkward. Shrug.
G'wan, delve a little further..
