People Watching

Would you like to wear long pants, a shirt and a scarf around your face in Florida's heat? Maybe her husband and children are waering long pants out of sympathy.
Cool dudes!

This may very well be the last post in this blog. It causes a lot of trouble up loading the pictures. Wait for a new edition in the future.

When you turn right, you wind up in Dr.Seuss' Landing where you meet all your favorite characters - that is if you are a child.

Island of Adventures, Universal Studios

Universal Studios has two parks, one of the is the Island of ADventures with Harry Potter's world and Jurassic Park. Today's photos show the entrance area. The bazar lies behind the gates.

The modern city - more like the idea of the modern world as it might have apperaed in the fifties - is located between the parking garages and the gates.

Jurassic Park

Right next door to the wintry world of the wizards, Jurassic Park Jungle gives some relief from the crowds.

Can you see Jurassic Park next to Hogswards?

We went to see Harry Potter ...

Before Harry entered the Wizarding School, he lived with his mean Mugle (non wizard) relatives. One day, an owl delivered a letter to him. Look into the rafters where the owls are waiting for their assignments. Of course, there is the greatest little candy store. We couldn't find any weird flavors, however. Before he could go to the wizarding school, he had to buy a wand. The actor in this small store did a great job selecting and 'selling' wands to two young brothers, a really nice feature in the park. Finally, Harry arrives at his school. The inside has a really cool ride, sort of a low rollercoaster with soaring video. I need to close my eyes throughout most of the ride.The school's choir was superb, very likely opera trained voices.Inside the school in the waiting line for the ride. We were allowed to cut in line because we had two birthday babies with us.
