Trippie Index is here The 4F Trip Report Day 10 - 06-Jul-2009 - Lazy Day, Hoop-De-Doo Revue Don't be silly, we cannot possibly be on day ten of our holiday. It's only just started! Today was planned to be a day for shopping, followed by the Hoop-De-Doo revue in the evening. To my great surprise, nobody except for me wanted to go shopping. So much of the day was spent lazing around the pool. I did do a little shopping. I almost bought myself a new camera - the "Camera Center" just beside the Wyndham Resort on I-Drive was offering the Canon 40D at a stupidly low price. But I reckoned that (i) there had to be a catch and (ii) it wouldn't give me a lot over what I already had in my existing camera. What I really want is a Canon 5D Mk II, but I think that that is going to be a long way in the future! At the resort, we rented a pedal boat and puttered up and down the lake for a while. These things take a lot of pedal power! The kids told us we were far too lazy, so we pulled back into the marina and let them do some pedalling. Suddenly they reckoned that our pedalling was pretty good Then it was time to get changed and go to the Fort Wilderness resort. We did this the scenic way, taking the car back to the Car Care Center on the way. We were taken in the shuttle bus to the resort, and dropped outside reception. The Fort Wilderness resort is simply huge, and we had to get a bus to take us from the reception area to "Pioneer Hall" wheree the revue was taking place. The theiming here was the Wild West, near the Frontier, where all we Pioneers were gathering for a night's entertainment. I can't say that the horses looked all that impressed by us: But a nice lady opened the doors and let us in to Pioneer Hall for the show! Our appetiser was salad, and I chose some beer for my complimentary drink And the show got underway The servers were very much into the spirit of the event. Food was bashed down onto the table, drinks sloshed into the cups. This wasn't rudeness; this was being part of the atmosphere of the place and it worked very well. As for the show itself, the performers were excellent but something about the show just failed to grab my attention. I think that the performers were so good at creating the atmosphere of a rough-and-ready show that it actually came across as being rough-and-ready, rather than a polished imitation of it. If you see what I mean! Anyway, the main course arrived - half-chicken, ribs and a glass of beer for Marie As you'd expect from Disney, there were lots of alternatives available for the kids, who really didn't see a lot that they wanted to eat here.
