Florida Week 2 Part 2


Return visit to The Animal Kingdom.


Colobus Monkey


We walked around the aviary and watched naked mole-rats in their burrows.

Hippo
Jay acting the fool.








This female gorilla made us laugh as she carefully sidled up to the male.






Egyptian Tortoises




Hour-glass tree frogs.







Giant Vietnamese Centipede.

Typhoon Lagoon, a Disney Water park.

Jay and Fay on the Lazy River.

OH falling out of his ring and Jay laughing beside him.




Seaworld on a wet and windy day as tropical storm "Fay" hit town.


It had to be called Fay didn't it!





OH was impressed by this sign and insisted on a photo!




Jay loves penguins, he has several soft toy penguins on his bed.






The puffins were so graceful underwater.








The shows were stunning. I had to ask myself how ethical it is to encourage these amazing creatures to perform, but they all seemed happy to cooperate and conservation is important to Seaworld. Still, I couldn't help but feel that they should have been in the wild.











Rescued Manatees.

The next day we finished up the parts of the Disney parks that we had missed.



First Hollywood Studios to see the Indiana Jones and Muppet shows.




Then onto the Magic Kingdom to see the Main Street Parade.



And finally onto Epcot.



Before returning "home" for some Mickey Mouse pasta!

Hi Kim, yes we had an amazing holiday. We are back to school/college/work now and I'm struggling to get back into the usual routine!
