Up at 05:00 and all ready for the start of the Grand Prix by 05:30 with cups of tea in hand...!!! Not a great race and it sort of ended up as we expected, though not what we wanted... 1st Vettel, 2nd Alonso, 3rd Webber, 4th Hamilton, 5th Button. Could have been worse I guess. So, what to do today?... Rob & Mandy have already left for SeaWorld to meet up with Margaret, Haley & Tom, the Mastersons are off to Aquatica soon and we're having breakfast at the villa before a bit of shopping at Super Target. We then plan to meet up with them at Aquatica later on in the day.

The store was huge and almost empty, so it was easy cruising the many aisles of goodies. Loulee was pleased as she found an outfit for our Hallowe'en evening on wednesday at Magic Kingdom. We left here and headed for Aquatica, but it was quite cloudy now with gusty winds, so weren't sure if we'd go in or not. Well, we did go in and soon found the family... or rather Shaun found us! He'd told us that they'd get sun beds at the front of one of the two pools, so we slowly wandered along the edge of them scanning the beach and got to the end with no luck. We stopped to phone them as a voice from behind us said "Don't you recognise the villa towels on those beds?", and found we'd stopped right beside their chairs!

They all went off to the various water rides while I did my normal wandering around taking lots of photos around the park. The best thing for me was seeing the little black & white Commerson's Dolphins in the Dolphin Plunge ride. The clouds stayed around for quite a while, but it was very hot once they cleared off. We had lunch in the Banana Beach Cook-Out, an all day buffet for less than fifteen bucks each, where you could return (with a wrist band) to eat/drink as many times as you wanted to throughout the day. So, just before the park closed, we nipped in again and had an earlyish dinner for effectively nothing...!!! My kind of price...!!!

On the way back to the villa we stopped off at Publix and then Walmart to get a few bits we needed, then watched the sun go down as we drove home. So we'd seen the sun come up in the morning and then go down in the evening... it don't get much better than that...!!! This whole day turned out to be the most relaxing since we've been here, with plenty of chattin', snackin' and a drinkin'...!!! None of us stayed up too long though as there's an earlyish start tomorrow morning for Busch Gardens.

Oh, have I said anything about this awesome Mustang GT500 lately, I could listen all day to the amazing noise it makes when that pedal hits the metal... and I'm definitely not gonna wanna give it back on saturday...!!!
