There was quite a bit of rain last night and showers and strong winds are forecast for today. But we're going out with our positive heads on and hope that it doesn't get too damp while we take in the delights of Universal Studios... after some breakfast that is! Golden Corral again supplied our morning munch, though it was the Sand Lake Road one this time by way of a change.
Universal is only a couple of minutes drive from the restaurant, so it isn't long before we're walking into the park and meeting up with Margaret, Haley & Tom and heading for our first ride
After that one, the other rides were pretty tame in comparison, with "Revenge of the Mummy" being the best of the rest. Various members of our group went to different rides/shows, for us it was; "Shrek 4-D", "The Simpson Ride", "MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack", "Disaster! A Major Motion Picture Ride... Starring YOU" and finally the old favourite, "E.T. Adventure". By now it's getting on a bit and none of us have had any lunch to speak of and the group are now heading off to different places. Some to Islands of Adventure next door, some staying just a while longer, while we opt for a bit of a snack and then a naughty ice cream from Schwab's Pharmacy... hmmm...!!! After that we wandered around to "Revenge of the Mummy" to use our Fast Pass from a couple of days back before leaving and heading off to Walmart on the way home. After dropping Elise off at the (empty) villa, we spent a couple of hours cruising around this massive store, and after buying a few bits and pieces headed back to Hampton Lakes. There was still no sign of the others when we got there, and it was nearly nine o'clock before they all came flooding in through the door with bulging bags of stuff...!!!
Now, what's happening with that hurricane? Well it seems that it's gonna make land fall much further north around the Carolina's or New York State region, so we should be ok. Our hearts go out to the people already affected by it.
