From Ft Lauderdale to Disney World….

Ft Lauderdale was the location we had chosen to have more work completed on Our Rose.
So, here she is "again" being hauled…


Due to our width, they had to use the "big boat" lift (350 tonne)


We then came to rest in front of a "big boat"
This is looking out of our cockpit...


We then headed off to Disney World for 3 days.
We were lucky enough to be there during their flower and garden festival
Their plantings were extraordinary.

We managed to go to Epcot Centre, Animal Kingdom & Hollywood Studios.
Richard wrote a poem about our time at Disney World, which I will post on a separate entry.
However, for now the following photos show some of our time at Disney World…


























At Epcot Centre, the evening would end each day with an amazing fireworks display.
This "world" would come out across the lake, light up while spinning and then open out.
I (just) managed to get the photo showing NZ…


The grand finale was spectacular…


When we arrived back to Ft Lauderdale we had organised to go "shopping" for 2 days.
We stayed near Saw Grass Mills - the second largest shopping mall in America
I couldn't resist a photo of these shoes


We caught up with Ashley and Jack again (unfortunately Graeme was away)


Heading back to check on the boat it started to rain - it just poured down…
