Chilly's Trip... Day 15/16 (The End)

Day Fifteen Thursday 28th September

Cast:

Claire (Me) - Initiator, planner, over excited one
Mike – Goes with the flow

Today started off early with me packing and Mike doing I’m not sure what. I always forget how long it takes to pack so that meant we set off late to check in at Virgin Downtown and still not knowing where we were going after we’d done that. Virgin wasn’t busy so we checked in quickly and decided to head back to SeaWorld so that I could try and touch a dolphin again and Mike thought it was good as it was on the way to the airport.

We rode Atlantis again straight away so we would dry off before the flight. We saw the Dolphin show and the Baby Shamu show again (although the baby show was much shorter this time).





Then it was time to touch some Dolphins. I decided this time I needed some food to lure them near me, so I sent DBF off to queue up for some while I got a good spot at the wall and lo and behold dolphins were coming up to me left right and centre! I stroked loads of them and kept waving at Mike who could see me from the queue but sadly that meant no photos of it. When he finally got back with the fish they ate and ran (swam) so quickly I didn’t get much of a touch.



DBF said we had to leave then to get to the airport in time so off we set and before you know it we are sat at the gate with hours to spare! The flight home was uneventful and very empty so we had the row of 4 seats to ourselves and I lay down and slept for a few hours not that it seemed like I had when I woke up. The food was ok and I watched a film, I tried to play some games but my controller wouldn’t go left so it made it quite hard, ok impossible.

We landed back at Gatwick on Friday 29th, picked up the car from Little Foxes and headed back to Reading where we had a nap for a few hours then got up so we got back on British time, and that was that holiday over, only the washing left to do.

Right time to start working on DBF again.

Well as you can see from my ticker I have talked him in to DLRP for New Year next year but WDW is proving more difficult as he wants to go to Australia. I will keep trying though!
