It was overcast today in Orlando...YAY!  Weather is now taking a turn to rain most afternoons right around rush hour.  It's not QUITE to that point, but rain will be coming soon at that time.

 

Hurricane season starts in 2 weeks...WOW!!!  I was reading the wikipedia article about the history of Orlando.  The article states that Orlando as the location of WDW was chosen by Mr. Walt Disney because it was inland more than Tampa (one possible choice) so hurricanes would probably not present major problems.  He was correct until 2005 brought Hurricane Charlie, which hit Orlando directly.

 

I found it interesting that there is dispute about how Orlando was named.  Here's the article link:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orlando,_Fl  The city beautiful!  That's our motto!

 

I read another article about airports...Orlando's airport gets pretty high marks http://travel.yahoo.com/ideas/americas-best-worst-airports-01184142...  Other than the security lines are often long. 

 

Hope everyone is out there being happy and sailing!  Weather has been gorgeous for it here.  Having my boat bottom scraped (doesn't that sound kind of pornographic?  hahahahaha) this weekend.  It's always something!

 

Dreaming the life and living the dream.

Fair winds.  Stay safe and dry out there.
