So, here it is…
I was never much for writing reports or essays. I can. I just don’t like to. Instead, I am going to try for the creative report… maybe this one I can complete :laugh:
I have 1092 photos. I will spare you the details of every waking HOT, RAINY moment…instead, I will attempt to post as many photos here as possible and let you see our journey!
In the pics… ME!!, DD(14), DN(11) and family friend Samantha (20)
Stayed at POFQ and visited all 4 parks over 7 lovely hot, stormy days. Dodged a hurricane but not the rain and wind.
Pic #1 On our way!!! Oh wait… just kidding…we are stuck on the tarmac… storm in Chicago… Just FYI- I have used the words- stuck in Chicago at ORD - FAR too many times in my life. Just sayin’.
Speaking of the storm… It was actually kinda scary- and I LOVE storms! But watching this bugger roll in and feeling the thunder and winds while sitting in a little plane that is tipping side to side was a bit much. Especially when it went from morning to night in minutes with only lightning illuminating the wings and no view more than 5 feet from the window.
It was however comforting that our pilot got on and said “you may see other planes taking off and that is their business- we made a decision to wait it out” 5 minutes before the FAA? called a severe weather alert and halted take-offs.
Pic #2 Oh yeah… you know what that means!
