And When Did You Last See Your Father? - Orlando and Sanibel Island - **COMPLETE**

Hello all!


Welcome to the index for our Halloween/Thanksgiving/Early Christmas holiday to Orlando and Sanibel Island.


We are a family of three - me (April), DH (R.C.) and DS (Poot - who turned 10 on this holiday!). We visited Orlando and Sanibel Island, travelling from Gatwick on BA.

DH has his own business and could only join us for part of the holiday (hence the title of this trippie!).




Hes not really a theme park sort of chap, but he enjoys it down on the Gulf Coast.

For our week on Sanibel we were joined by my DM (Judybat) and her husband (Hans).

Perfect timing!

Thanks for your kind words - Day 0 is up now.

I meant to get a goodly bit done on this trippie over Christmas, but my DH brought a dreadful virus home from the office - and then gave it to DS and I. Not the gift I had in mind...
