yes I walked right on ME. I don't think I have ever had to wait very long in line. On the bus, sometimes a bit of a wait but never so long that I "wonder what is going on."

Yes, a grown woman doing a mission. I did get a couple of "just you" but nothing more. It was fun.

Now to the newer ones.

I think the tradition is explained either on the tree itself or near the ornaments so you understand why there is a pickle tree.

Beautiful water photos! I've never seen Sergio before. I'm going to make a point to catch him next trip.
Yay for more pickle people. Do what you can to catch him. It is worth it.

Sad that it broke. I think I actually got mine at a local Christmas shop.

I have a pretty good feeling we're going to become fast fans of the new place across the lake, too.

Outta sight.
Don't have a cow.
Rad?

I am excited about the new place too. Hopefully we will see some "action" across the lake.

I know right? but could you imagine gondola rides on the lake in those tiny boats? I am hoping what we see is just for decoration and not some representation of what could have been.

Glad you are here. I wasn't hiding, really. I am working this weekend but I hope to continue either one night if possible or at the latest Monday, since I am off.

Super top secret

After I laughed until my sides ached, it was time to check in for my mission. Yes, I am a grown woman doing a mission all by myself. I guess I got over being shy about that.

First I had to find the place to check in. I walked from Germany to Italy and back. Wow they really kept that place top secret. I guess painting the sign " go away green" probably did not help.
I finally found this little sign.



Picked up my Kimmuinicator


My mission was back in Germany.


I won't spoil the mission for everyone. It is Top Sercret you know. A few highlights couldn't hurt.


I love how they decorate everything for fall and food and wine.


The big finish.


With the world safe for now, I was told to "make the drop".


To make a quick escape I hopped on one of these.


To go here.


I waited about 10 minutes for the boat.
I cannot remember the last time I took the boat. Maybe when the kids were small and could walk no more.


Dropped off far from evil.


Where did I go next?



Wait time 10 min. I'm in.




Of course as I walk by this, it releases and scares the begeebas (sp?) out of me.


Wait time was more like 15 min. Soon enough I back out enjoying the fountain.



Hmmmm Since I took my first picture at 4:21 that morning and it was now 3:14 that afternoon I was starting to feel it. So much for slowing down and relaxing. Back here for a nap.


How long did I nap? Was I down for the count? Did I go out later? If so where did I go? Sorry guys but I am leaving you with those questions to ponder.

What a fun day you had in Epcot. My dream WS experience, strolling, looking at the details, in the shops, watching performances without any one rushing you along, taking pics, having margaritas, doing a mission...

A perfect start to your trip!

I love that you did a mission all on your own. I secretly would love to do this too.

In fact you did have a perfect day. Someday I would like to take a solo trip so I could just do what I want, but I'm afraid I might get lonely.

A nap sounds real good.

It is so cool. I had always worked at "regular pools" until 2006. The last pool I was at we added a sprayground and slides and I got interested in the" ride" factor". I am at a small park and rec indoor waterpark. I have been going since '06 and the people are so nice. Even with budget issues when the County can't send me I volunteer and pay my own way to get there. That's how much I love that conference.

That was my first time truly solo and I LOVED it.

Holy Cow I am glad I was not sipping something when I read that. In fact I was waiting for someone from the pool deck to come check on me since I was laughing so hard. You are so right. I think I needed to check on my luggage and grab the other camera as well as try to rest. At some time you will see my "Ellen " solution to a problem.

Stay tuned to see if I actually took that nap.
