Where I stayed
Guest of John White and Adrienne Longo
We brought our stuff into the house since we will be staying here for a couple of weeks. Including a recliner chair we bought for Evie.
I left at 2pm to pick up Adrienne from work so I could see where she worked and meet her coworkers. I left a little earlier than planned, it looked like it might rain and I wanted to get a jump on the weather. No luck, the moment I started the car the rain drops joined me. I think there is a black cloud over head with my name on it. Fortunately after picking up Adrienne she took over the driving (You guessed it, the rain stopped.)
On the way back to the house we stopped by the stables to see her horse Zippy
After dinner we ran out to Old Town (in Kissimmee). We walk around and looked at some of the classic Cars that were there. Like most tourist there were many tourist trap shops to look through. it was a nice evening, a bit on the humid side but not unbearably hot. After returning home around 11pm we sat watched TV for a bit then we all turned in for the night.
Located approximately 10 miles to the south of Kissimmee, Poinciana is a master planned community set on approximately 47,000 acres in the north east corner of Osceola county, Florida. Close to the world’s largest theme parks and thriving tourist industry Poinciana is also far enough away for its residents to relax in peaceful surroundings.
