Welcome to Friendship Tea, a blog about the daily happenings in the life of Linda, a tea enthusiast, who enjoys travel and trip planning, and is passionate about family, friends, life in Kentucky, and all things TEA.
We have stayed at the Gaylord Palms on three different trips to Orlando/Kissimmee. This time we had a balcony on the Atrium with a fabulous view.
We visited the alligators in "Gator Springs." Double click to see them sunning on the rock in the water behind AJ in the second photo.
At Sunset Sam's seafood restaurant (on the boat) AJ was transformed into a pirate via facepainting and received balloon characters made by the man on stilts.
AJ found lots of free space in the Atrium to practice his newfound skills after Jedi Training at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and free time to play games in the arcade where he became top scorer on the sword game. Perhaps all that Jedi training helped...
We also enjoyed delicious meals in the other resaurants at the hotel, and I did a little shopping in the shops while the guys were busy with other activities.
When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea. There is magic in its' fragrance, There is solace in its' taste; And then laden moments vanish Somehow into space. And the world becomes a lovely thing! There's beauty as you'll see; All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea. ~ Source unknown
