The Side effects of the AP-Trip#6 Oct 10 Final thoughts and some TMI

Okay, Okay
I wouldn't say I have had request but I sure have been egged on a bit about doing a report. So here it is.

I am Pat. Pat the Poolrat, not only here but at home too since I work in aquatics. I was the kid who was always at the pool just hanging out. When I was old enough I got a got a job there, guarding, coaching teaching swim lessons you name it.


I am on the right- the not Rafiki looking one

This will be a journey so I will start at the beginning.
There was a ball of gas... ( okay too far back)
My Mom and Dad went to hospital... ( still too far )
So the balloon popped in my face on my wedding day... ( getting closer)

The contraction are getting closer... ( closer still )
Why won't this baby come out ( almost there )


Disney World for a conference, sure I'm in. ( OKay close enough)

Growing up my Dad would attend some banking conference at Disney every few years so that is where it really started. I got to attend my first World Waterpark conference in 2006 and took my DSthen 12 along. He loved the trade show part of the conference Disney was not bad either.

Fast forward 3 years to the next conference at Disney.Conferences were at the Coronado.



but I decided to get there early and spend a couple of days on my own, relaxing.

At POP

My pictures from this trip are really mixed up. I will attempt to unmix. If I lose the pictures already posted I will relink. Please bear with me.

The trip that started things Oct 16-25

The Oct Trip started normal enough. Up early and to the Airport.
What would become a familiar gate.


Hitting the fake monorail


Over to ME


While waiting for the bus to leave, I saw these teens getting on another bus. There was a ton of them all excited to be going to Disney.


I had a front row seat seat so I was able to capture this.


But I missed this


I got the next one.


You see I read MeMom and Jill's reports so I was eager to stay at POP.
Inspired my MeMom



What building would I be in ???? I will give you a hint.


So I took the short walk over past this,



To here.


I see I had a friend waiting for me.



QSDP was provided free during this trip. I picked up this beauty right away.



Where would I head first?

I don't believe I have ever been first on anyone's report.





Ready to roll, my aquatic friend!
