Your photos were lovely (as usual)

I!
Oh that would have been awful to have the flu! Way worse than a 16 hr headache! And, you're right - I did enjoy some quiet time at Epcot and I did enjoy taking pix. glad you like them!

It really was so pretty in there. It's definitely a first thing in the morning or later in the evening thing. Midday must be killer!

Ughhhh - that must have been horrible! Definitely not the place you want to be with a headache! I bet you didn't go on the roller coaster there. That thing really shakes you up. Fun - Yes. With a migraine -NEVER! Well - you are a good mom for sticking that out!

Thank you!

BTW - have a great time if you do go to THE BEACH tomorrow! It's supposed to be good weather and rain on Sunday!

I don't think its changed all the much. At least not in the city limits. The outskirts on Route 1 have built up immensely over the years. It really is a nice vacation spot. I am definitely plotting my return.

I learned about Excedrin Migraine on this trip. Cynthia told me about it. It is now my "go to" headache remedy. Love it!

As far as the ED - yeah - I just really wanted that headache gone. In the middle of the night it seemed like a good option, but I'm glad I didn't go for it.

Thanks! And, yes, I thought the CMs were that wonderful. Right down to the guys where I checked my luggage for ME. They asked me how everything was and I told them they were the nicest people on the planet. Talk about beaming from ear to ear. They seemed genuinely concerned about what I thought!

You know Kathy - it could have been so much worse, so I am just happy I was able to get out to a park for a few hours. The day wasn't a total wash. Glad you like the pix.

I headed down to the quiet pool around the same time as ME. She was over in the shade presently in therapy


Tracy
I forgot you visited your cousin. I'm so glad you posted this! That's a great pix of the two of you. Love it!

Ahh - yes - therapy!!!!! Or Alternative Medicine as I am now calling it!

I'd like to see this in person! How much of each thing can each person eat before it all turns into mush! Good Luck to Tyler doing clean up duty!!!!!

How did your cousin like Richard Petty?
Hey there chica
I made another appearance with C at B&C later in the week and had another cheeseburger this time followed by a no way Jose

Laurie loved the Richard Petty experience. She did one a few years ago at Daytona as a ride along in a NASCAR car. This time was supposed to be a ride along in an Indy car but the ride along car was broken so she "had" to drive herself That's the only way I would want to do it. I drive fast like an idiot and have control issues one of these days I'll do it too

Unfortunately, she didn't want to "bother" me! I felt so bad for all of them. I hope you were feeling better soon!
Ahh - your poor friend. One thing I learned is that if you are in the parks and you feel sick and go to the infirmary, they will arrange a ride home for you. I had that experience once, but I won't go there right now. Getting your first migraine is such a drag. I hope your friend's daughter recovered quickly!

Thanks! Yes - the day did redeem itself after a little pool therapy and alternative medicine! And, like I said, it could have been a lot worse. Way worse.

Glad you like the pix!!!!

We did this in March and it wasn't the best. I think possibly the icecream wasn't very frozen to begin with but it was mush before we even started. My picky group turned their noses up at it pretty quickly. The whole presentation was fun though. They got a kick out of it

Every time I see pictures of it on the boards it looks like it turns into mush pretty quickly. Maybe they don't freeze it really well because they can scoop it out quicker. I remember from back in my friendly days that the hardest ice cream was almost impossible to scoop. That could be a problem in Disney. Cool that you tried it. It does look like fun!

Add my concern for your poor head with everybody's. If you had my kind of therapy you did all right! Usually I try a stiff drink on the theory that it may not kill the pain, but after a few I don't give a s@#t!

I like the pix of the not commonly known spots.

The other problem they had was trying to find Children's Advil. My friend finds that if she takes Advil right away (at first signs of vision problems) it helps a lot so she wanted to do the same for her daughter, but they couldn't find any! They got a late start the next day, but it didn't ruin the vacation.

Good tip about going to the infirmary!

I was behind quite a few posts, getting caught up now. Looks like you had a nice day at Rehobeth beach. I grew up in Philly and we always called it going "down the shore" when we would go to places in NJ like Wildwood or Ocean City, but when we got there, we went to "the beach" during the day to swim.

Sorry about your headache, I know it stinks to not feel good on Vacation.

Great pictures from the beach. I wish I lived close to a "real" beach, and not just lakes, or the manmade sand pool at our local county park (which is great, but it's not the beach!). Sounds like a fun weekend.

Oh - the dreaded headache! I have a lot of sinus issues and frequently have sinus headaches. I never go anywhere with out sudafed and aleve or advil with me. I'm sorry you didn't get to do all you planned, but at least your day wasn't spent at the ER! And you got more cool pictures!

Tracy - how fun that you got to meet up with your cousin! That's a great picture of the two of you. I heard the DIS unplugged do a review of the Richard Petty thing. I think someday my DH might like that. He's a car nut and likes to drive fast too.

Nice update, Tracy. Glad you got to spend time with your cousin before they headed over the Petty Experience. You reminded me yet again that we have NOT been to Beaches & Cream and we have to get there one of these days.

The beach sounded wonderful. Here is South Louisianan we don't know what the shore is? We go to the beach, of course since we don't have beaches here only marshes we have to go to Mississippi, Alabama or Florida.

Mary Ellen I'm so sorry your headache left you feeling so bad. But it does sound like you found the right "medicine" to get you back on track, of course resting always helps too.

Still loving your pictures! I was showing them to DH since we're suppose to stay at POR in Feb. He said you're a great photographer.

Tracy sounds like you had a great morning. How neat to meet your cousin in Disney. My DH would love to do the Richard Petty drive thing. He loves speed.
