Holiday in Florida


The excitement has been building over the past year.
But it’s finally here; our holiday to Florida and everyone is bursting!
We leave a note to my dad, it says;
Dear dad,
Please can you leave the landing light on at night
and don’t forget to close the curtains. Feed the cat and its best
to leave the doors open ajar in case he gets shut in one of the rooms
and needs the loo!
Thanks so much for having the dog for 3 weeks too.
Love ya dad xxx
Nearly nine hours on the plane, I think the toilet will always scare me a bit
as I’m afraid it may suck me up into it!
Lazing in our villa and by the pool in the Orange County sun 
is overwhelmingly enjoyable for all; the five of us having family fun.
Too much to squeeze in, 3 weeks isn’t long enough.
Full to the brim with Disney parks galore.
The incredible wild life, oh and the armadillo by the road!
I even lost weight with all that walking we did!
All you can eat, a real treat.  Plus cinnamon doughnuts – yum! 
It had to come to an end. The heat, the sand and the sun.
The photos I took were great,
Wonderful memories to hold on to forever.

    Your poem gave me a good laugh, Emma. Hope your father doesn't mind pet-sitting. You might indeed see an armadillo by the road (as well as an alligator). If you come this way for real, let me know and I'll meet you in Orlando. Many wonderful places to visit there. Great entry for Carol's vacation contest and I'm sending winning wishes your way. Love, Carolyn
