July 3 At The World

This has been pretty typical weather for the summer in Orlando - hot, rainy, humid, and repeat.  For instance, here is some rain we had today (and probably yesterday). It didn't last long, but was pretty intense for awhile.

The good news is that most of the time, this happens in the afternoon, otherwise known as nap time. We managed to spend the other part of the day eating and shopping as planned. Molly and I had breakfast at "Be Our Guest" in the Magic Kingdom. No calories in this breakfast!

After golfing, Steve joined us for an early dinner at LeCellier. He and Molly love the poutine there. Actually, we had potato soup, poutine (french fries drenched with various toppings), and enhanced smashed potatoes. Starch, anyone?

Our next quest was to watch the July 4 fireworks at the Magic Kingdom (they do the fireworks on the 3rd and the 4th, probably for crowd control). We were going to watch it from our hotel, which is on the lake across from the castle. But then some real weather broke loose - rain and lightning with a real attitude. For a while we watched the weather from inside the building and waited for the fireworks. Which never quite got started. We went outside and stood in the rain for about three minutes and then decided to call it a night and watch the fireworks tomorrow night with the rest of the bazillion people at Disney World. Later we found out that the fireworks did go off - about and hour and a half late. We were probably in bed by then (we are old fogeys).

Anyhow, just to give you an idea, this was some of the lightning that happened over the castle. And no, I did not take any of these photos. When lightning is around, I am inside. However, it was pretty spectacular!! Sort of like a Disney movie!!

Today is a gift because: breakfast with Molly and dinner with Molly and Steve; waiting for the fireworks
