Day 11 Florida Vacation Xmas 2007

Karen and I got up early this morning and finished packing the car. We packed most of our gear last night, so just had some last minute packing to do. We headed for I - 75 and home. We started looking for a restaurant for breakfast and saw a sign for Perkins. Since we had never tried a Perkins before we decided that this would be a good opportunity. We were both very impressed, a greeter opened the door for us to enter, another greeter took us to our table. Every waitstaff we encountered between the door and our table took a moment to say good morning. I am not sure if this is what goes on in each Perkins, but it was a refreshing change from the typical attitudes of many restaurant employees. The breakfast was very enjoyable, and everyone said good bye as we walked out and the greeter held the door again. We will be looking for more Perkins Restaurants as we travel.

We pulled into McDonough GA and booked a room for the night. We are making good time heading north.

No photos today, sorry.

Day 10 Florida Vacation Xmas 2007

Today is a day for getting organized for the trip back home. We did laundry today, got the car filled up and washed. Other than that, we took it easy and relaxed around the hotel. I didn't take any photos today to share with you. We will be up early in the morning and on the road back home.

Day 9 Florida Vacation Xmas 2007

Well here we are, the first day of a new year 2008. Today we got up and headed for Disney MGM Theme Park and then later in the afternoon we went to Downtown Disney. I really liked these Disney Topiary Sculptures. Topiary is the shaping of plants through pruning and training.

This is the entrance arch to Downtown Disney. If there is anything Disney that you are wishing to purchase, well Downtown is the place to go.

It wasn't a very good day for photos, but if you want to see the few photos that I did take, then please visit my Flickr site.
