Day 9 – Applebees

On the ninth day of our holiday to Florida (aka FLORIDAY) we didn’t really do much. After 4 full days of theme parks, a rest day was needed. 
When I woke up, I went down to the gym while Christine was still asleep. I did a bit of running and cycling, although it was so hot I struggled running for longer than 15 mins. They had the Disney channel on in the hotel gym and I was watching a kids show called ‘Dog with a blog’. Yes. You heard me. A dog. He had a blog.
Basically it’s a dog that can talk, but nobody knows he can talk apart from the kids and he has a blog where he publishes posts about his family. I wonder what is Google page rank is and how many followers he has on bloglovin. And how hard it finds it using the keyboard. 
Anyway, when I went back to the room, Christine was gone. I wasn’t sure if her and the twins went somewhere for breakfast or to the shops or whatever, so I grabbed my towel and went to the pool. I found them there sunbathing.
It was around midday and I was hungry from the gym so I got a chicken caesar salad from the bar. 
I swam quite a bit when I got to hot and had my iPad with me. I was using the downtime to catch up on friends blogs and tweets. As it was Sunday, I was able to join most of the Sunday evening twitter chats as they start at 7pm UK time which was 2pm Florida time. Winner!
After making the world of twitter jealous by telling everyone I was tweeting from beside the pool in Florida (photos as proof) we went back to the room, showered and then headed for food. 
We decided to go to Applebee’s which was REALLY nice. 
For starters, Christine and I shared some amazing grilled chicken wonton tacos. For my main I had sirloin steak with grilled garlic prawns. I really would have been able to eat there every night as they had so many things that sounded delicious! Nom nom NOM.

    I went to Applebees in New York, it was the only place that could fit us in quickly before we went to the theatre. The food was ok, not brilliant, but yours looks delicious!

  15. Just getting around to reading your Disney blogs after you sent me them on twitter. I had to comment on this one as I adore Applebee’s and sat at a table about three metres away from the one you were in!
