end of Day Three and most of day Four

We headed to Cortez for lunch at Starfish on the water. Clare loved the ambiance but loved the fried oyster Poo' Boy more. Not so much on the hush puppies. After that it was onward to Disney. We checked into our room at the Wilderness Lodge (a simply amazing place)and, when Janet's brother, Steve arrived we headed to supper at the Artist Point here in the lodge. Two of us had the salmon on the plank with a mulled wine sauce and three of us had the sea scallops. No one left hungry! We watched a bit of tv and then hit the sack. We knew we would have a full day ahead of us.

Day Four: the Gobsmacked Goddesses do the Magic Kingdom.

We started with Main Street, headed to Liberty Square, on to Fronterland, did Splash Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Swiss Family Robinson, Jungle Cruise, It's a Small World (and do you know Janet can sing that in Chinese?), road the railway, Clare and I spun ourselves silly on the Tea Cups, Toon Town where we went through Minnie and Mickey's houseS (they are not married you know and still reside separately since this is a family resort) (and btw, Pam in Moncton, you are right the duck)and then we took the boat home...where we had a light supper of chicken salad, cheeses and crackers and some of us stopped at the pool bar and others just opened the wine in the room!

We are not waiting for time to head down to the dock to watch the fireworks at 8pm. We'd go back to the resort except we are too tired and they won't let us wear our jammies or take our wine glasses into the Magic Kingdom.

P.S. Clare is insisting I tell you that Minnie loves her best! sigh. And we are making Minnie an honorary Gobsmacked Goddesses!
