Hi There Everyone
Once again Nigel and I have had another great few days on our trip so far. In Orlando so far we have gone to seaworld twice, Universal studios, swam with the manatees and gone to the outside of Wet n Wild (hehe we saw the line up and felt the heat and went..' ahh no' and went back to our hotel). We've spent a lovely day relaxing in our hotel pool and our room. Its so nice to have someone come in and tidy up your room and do your dishes etc. Will be hard coming home hehe. We've been very blessed with the weather here too. It should be more stormy than it is, and so far while we've been here its only been blue skies. God knows that I am frightened of storms, so I know he's had his hand on us.. and I'm very thankful to him for that!
Well I thought I'd add a few more photos of the Grand Canyon in cos that was incredible..
(A photo of the canyon while in the helicopter about to head down into it)
(This is one of the beautiful manatees in Seaworld. I don't know what his real name is but I've nicknamed him Kenny. After my Manatee toy I bought that day! hehe)
(We saw quite an entertaining, if a little corny, show at seaworld with the killer whales which cornyness aside was quite impressive with all the tricks and stunts they do with the whales)
Well we've only been in the USA 1 week now, and anytime we receive any kind of excitement from americans at the fact we are australian we are constantly being told how much they love the Crocodile dundee movies.. hehe. Oh dear. Our hotel staff member this morning couldn't stop quoting the movie to us. He had both movies on dvd and watched them again yesterday. oh dear. He wanted to know if Aboriginal people really were like they were depicted int he movie and if we had seen any.
The other funny thing that happening in Las Vegas was when we went to a resturant and our waiter was very excited to hear we were from Adelaide because thats where Alby Mangels was from and this guy had seen all of Alby's movies and really wanted to come to Adelaide. He was very funny, I think he was lucky that people our age even knew who Alby Mangels was.. lucky for me I watched many Alby Mangels stuff as a kid so knew what he was talking about.. hehe thanks mum n dad! hehe.
Anyway.. thats about it for now. Will make another post at some point when we have internet access again.. we're off to New York tomorrow and are not sure how accessible the internet will be where we are staying. We'll soon find out I guess.
Take Care and thanks to everyone for their prayers. It has been noticed and much appreciated!
Amy and Nigel
