This entry will cover this past weekend and a little of last week. On Friday, February 19, we decided to spend the day at Universal Studios. The theme park is really two different parks. Our passes cover both. We did a quick tour of "Islands of Adventure" on Wednesday, so this time we did a tour of the park called "Universal Studios - Orlando".
The park is broken up into sections that each are based on a popular movie.

On Saturday, we went over and met our son Mark and three friends for dinner. They are heading out for a cruise on Sunday. We went to a Habachi restaurant and had a great time talking to Mark and getting to know his friends.
The next morning we got up very early for us. We were on the road at 9AM. The humanity!
We headed over to pick up the guys and drive them down to the cruise boat in Cape Canaveral. That went smoothly. We will pick them up next weekend to get a recap and take them back to the Airport. I shot one picture of the group, but it sadly did not turn out. Oh well, I will get them when they get back.
We then went to Titusville and checked out the area around the cape. This area is of course, the home of the Kenned Space Center. I have planned to check it out at some point, but today was not the day. We went to the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge Visitor center and took a walk around.

Looking down the Channel, you can see the cruise boats coming out of port.
There were a total of 4 ships coming out of port heading out to sea on this Sunday.
|First up was the Carnival Sensation|
Here are a few shots of the boat that Mark and his friends were on.

It has a been a fun first week in Orlando. We have three more weeks here. I am sure they will get crazy when the grandchildren get here. We can't wait. Come back to see what else we find to do in this active area.
