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.

  1. I think chill out days are a must in FL, we did 6 days straight of theme parks (with the exception of Downtown Disney) and I was knackered beyond belief.
    Our hotel was so close to Wet n Wild but we never went there cos I was too conscious of my weight 🙁 gutted cos I love water parks too! I read about that plug hole plunge thing, sounds so good! x

    1. Oh wow, we did three in a row once and that was enough for me! Your hotel must have been near ours as we were close to wet and wild too. I wore a swimsuit because there is no way on earth I’m getting in a bikini!

  2. Sounds like you had a lot of fun Corrine!! Its so hot in India lately that I’m dying to go to a water park myself! That baby alligator is cute! I always feel they have a permanent smug smile 🙂 Keep in touch xx

  3. Did you go on The Bomb in Wet n Wild? At least that’s what I think it was called? Rocket type contraption, you stand in, floor falls out, you plummet and get a mega wedge. Fun times!

    Well done you for loading up on the salad, I can’t do that in there, the pizza is just too tempting. Healthy eating goes out the window when I’m out there, everything is too tempting!

    1. I didn’t go on it, but I didn’t realise there was one there, I know there is one like it at one of the Disney water parks!

      The pizza wasn’t that great so it made it a bit easier. I thought American pizza would be much nicer than over here!

  4. Relaxing days in Florida are a must we went to Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard beach both amazing. You can end up doing loads of walking in Florida without even realising it. Never tried a corn dog and would have made the same assumption of you must be one for the veggies. The crocodile is really sweet I love watching swamp people on history channel not sure I should admit that. I bet you were glad that he had his mouth tapped. Snap snap Lucy x

  5. As an American who has also been to the UK, I can say: we are the awkward ones! Ha! I HATE forced cheery customer service. Anyway, looks like you had a great time! It is very interesting to see America through your eyes, and I loved your description of the corn dog!

  6. aah Corinne holding a alligator! That’s so cool !!. the blue dress looked very nice on you. Hot dog on a motherfucking stick hahahahaha your so funny 😛

  7. Looks like you are having so much fun. I adore Florida, would love to go back some day.

  8. ‘We ate the dogs and then we left.’ – hahaha
    Alligators scare me, well done for holding one! Thank goodness there are none in the UK, at least there aren’t any on the IOM anyway. Wet and Wild sounds like fun and the pool like gorgeous 🙂 I’m so jealous, I neeeeddd a holiday
