That lunch looks lovely.

Shame about nowhere in MK being open though.

Hope you've managed to get into your fruit Xx

It was a good sandwich, strangely Nev who has been reading along messaged me to say it looked really unappetising.

Yes I broke into the fruit in the end by sheer brute force.

Day 2: Gasparilla Grill lunch

Despite my supposed leisurely start to this trip yesterday, I reached over 25,000 steps and acquired not just blisters, but blood blisters on both feet. Accordingly I thought that monorail resort hopping might be best today and that is why I ended up at Gasparilla Grill at the Grand Floridian for lunch today.

I am always pleased to see a grilled ham and cheese on a menu, so nothing else was really in the running today. Once again I used my refillable mug for my accompanying beverage.



I had been a bit disappointed that I wouldnt be able to have this meal at Beaches & Cream this trip, due to its refurbishment. The Gasparilla Grill version made up for that and moreso. The soup was delicious, hot, thick and with lovely bits of tomato in it, actually very similar to the Beaches & Cream version. But the grilled cheese was definitely a step above the very nice B&C version, more generous with the cheese and the brioche bread toast really made it a winner with me.

Poor you, blisters are so painful. I suffer with them some trips too 😢 I do find Go Walks comfortable though and less likely to cause blisters.

The sandwich and soup looks delicious. Simple food tastes so good when its cooked well 😀

Nevs pre travel day: Premier Inn dinner

Nev will be joining me here tomorrow for the final night at the Caribbean Beach Resort. Tonight he is staying at the Premier Inn North Terminal ahead of his flight tomorrow morning. He pre-booked the dinner and breakfast package (well I did). He has sent me the photos and his own commentary below.

On arriving at the restaurant I was told there would be a table at 9pm, in forty minutes time, so I went and had a beer. Upon returning at 9pm I was seated quite quickly. The waitress went through the menu quite quickly but then vanished to seat other people.

After probably seven or eight minutes somebody came to take my order and a couple of minutes later my beer was served. After a further seven or eight minutes my prawn cocktail turned up. There was a nod in the presentation to the retro prawn cocktail unfortunately it was deconstructed. I had expected the Marie Rose sauce to be mixed into the prawn salad as opposed to being in a little dish on the side. It was a very uninspiring dish. Another thing, the white plate it was served on was ancient as it had that grey, scratchy, washed a million times look.

The mixed grill turned up in a reasonable amount of time. The steak was cooked near to rare, all the other pieces were there but it was a below average pub meal. I wont be remembering it.

It served a purpose of feeding me, but it was meh






I think he sent me that final photo with two left over peas because I had a piece of radish left over the other day.
