The one unlike nothing you've ever read before - day 5 - Celebration, Old Town car cruise and Food t


We both had a good nights sleep so we didn't hit the road until after 9 this morning and made the short trip to Celebration.
Always meant to go there only sort of got there on our 2016 visit, that coincided with a huge thunderstorm and we didn't get out of the car!






This time around we had much more luck, the weather was lovely and we parked easily. As it was still early, most businesses were only just opening, we enjoyed a leisurely stroll around the lake before settling on the Marketplace Diner for breakfast, we sat outside under the veranda.



DW had the blueberry pancake with a side of bacon it filled a large dinnerplate.



I had the Kitchen Sink- Tatertots (about a bag full) sausage ham peppers onions and gravy!

With 2 coffees the bill was $30 plus tip.



Thoroughly enjoyed it nice atmosphere and great service. View not too shabby either.

We will return to Celebration, it's a nice place to spend a couple of hours.



A good friend at home has asked us to check out the prices in the Bose outlet for him, so that's where we head next ( the top end of I Drive)

The wonders of modern technology mean I can send photos instantly to him in Scotland and we leave the store with a bag with the speaker and dock he wanted.

Job done, we head back to the hotel for a couple of pool hours.



Old Town for the cruise tonight, we use an Uber, quick and easy $7.50 I can have a beer maybe..



We decided to eat at the food trucks behind the flea market.. not a great success I'm afraid.. I was expecting more variety to be honest, but all the trucks are either Puerto Rican or Venezuelan. Very busy area and what we had was ok, but I'd probably not bother again.



The cruise at Old Town was very busy, had a couple of beers listening to the singer's on the Old Town Stage and people watching!
There are some "different " people here right enough.. but it's all very laid back and friendly. I think they are making an effort here, lots of modernisation and development going on.
A lot of classic cars there tonight too.






The Uber back was $9.50 and again a quick pickup and trouble free journey.



Tomorrow a late start Seaworld and Teak on the plans.

** update DW has had a disturbed night with an upset tummy... can only be the food from the trucks... !

Oh no, I hope DW is feeling better. The cars look fab. I do love some time in Celebration, we've been there in October and December and loved it both times. My DH is very interested in visiting the Bose outlet, although I think it will be when we're in Tampa in December this year rather than waiting till next year.
