Its all gone Wrong!

Totally fed up, the weather is terrible and we have been shopping again and went to Crackerbarrel for late breakfast/lunch. All my plans have gone down the drain, spent hardly any time on the beach and probably wont get to go on a boat trip and see Dolphins. Planned on a meal at the beach to watch the sunset and that isnt going to happen. Went to the Cinema yesterday and now in the Villa watching tv, I hate to say it but I am ready to come home, this is our 5th time in Florida as a family and my 7th time I have never had such bad weather. I have been planning this for two years and am totally gutted, sorry for the rant I know its nobodys fault and we cant change the weather. I cant keep moaning to my family who are peed off as well but I am bored so the dibb gets to listen to my woes. Btw is is hammering down!

I feel for you, I really do. We were there during tropical storm Faye and we had several days of solid rain. It got pretty depressing after a while. The positive was that the weather was beautiful once it had cleared off! How long do you have left?

Aww , that's such a shame! Feel free to rant away and get it off your chest! We will be there ne t Friday and really hope the bad weather is long gone by then or I will be on here doing exactly the same as you! Hopefully it will blow over soon but I know that doesn't help you just now, I think if it were me I probably would have tried to get cheap accommodation back in Orlando as oi would be like a caged hen if I were stuck in a villa for even a couple of days xxx

Coming home sunday and we are lucky if we see the sun before then, we only had 6 days in Orlando and are in a villa in Bradenton for 9 days. We have a gorgeous villa and planned on boat trips, beach days, meals by the sea. I will get over it but all we have done is shop and eat and had a few beach hours before it started raining. Oh well going to watch tv, feeling sorry for my self!

Sandra. I can see why you are fed up as your plans were so specific and not really changeable. Chin up it could be worse and a full blown hurricane.
I know it's easy to say but just plough on and by the look of it Saturday should be fine after the storm has cleared.

Didn't ever think I would say this but I can't wait to get home now we have been stuck in the room all day. I know people say i'd rather be in Florida than at work etc even in the rain but it's so miserable and I'm sorry but it's no fun. We leave tomorrow but it's ruined my last day completely. It seems that the weather could get worse tomorrow according to the news. I just want to get out of here

I love Florida I am upset that it took me so much saving to get here and we cant afford to come again in a hurry. I am having a wallow but I could handle it if I knew friday and saturday would be better but thats looking unlikely. I hate it when it keeps raining in England but at least I am prepared with clothes and my doggy is there! Ryles I feel your pain xx

Are you in Orlando? We were at MK today from 9-2 and didn't even get that wet. Only put ponchoes on once and even that wasn't a downpour.

Much heavier showers in late afternoon but certainly didn't need to stay in all day.

OP I know the weather was worse in the West coast but there are indoor things to do in the Sarasota area besides shopping. We really enjoyed the Ringling Museum for example.
