With our company gone and the inside of the guest shed pretty much complete, we turned our attention to the outside. Malcolm pressure-washed the shed and applied primer and paint to the outside. We painted it a light brown (similar to the previous color) with dark brown around the eaves and off-white trim around the windows and door. The door was painted a deep blue.
We also painted the inside of the door a dark teal color (looks bluer in this photo).
We plan on painting the other shed the same color scheme (except the doors will be the same medium brown as the body of the shed).
Dates: Mar. 7 – 9, 2018
We reserved a room at Bay Lake Tower at Disney World for our 32nd wedding anniversary. We left the trailer and drove over to Animal Kingdom park for the day while we awaited check-in time.
Later in the afternoon, we drove over to Bay Lake Tower to check in. It is adjacent to the Contemporary resort. All of the restaurants and gift shops are in the Contemporary. Bay Lake Tower is pretty much just rooms and suites.
Since we got the cheapest room available and at a fairly short notice (we booked in late January), the view wasn’t superb, but it was fine. It was too cool to sit outside on our porch anyway.
Still, we had a great time. Dinner on Wednesday evening was at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian resort. We rode the monorail over from the Contemporary and enjoyed a grand buffet. We also got to meet Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine (Cinderella’s stepmother) and Cinderella’s two step-sisters – Anastasia and Drizella.
On Thursday, our anniversary day, we went to Epcot and enjoyed walking around. We had a fast pass for the Frozen ride, but it was not running when our fast pass came around. So, we used it to ride Spaceship Earth on the way back to the hotel. Once back to the room, we changed clothes and rode the monorail over to the Polynesian Resort for our dinner luau. But first, a picture.
We’ve been to the Spirit of Aloha show before and thought it would be a fun way to spend our anniversary evening. Even though it was fairly cool, we were comfortable and the show was great.
We got up on Friday morning, packed our stuff, checked out and dropped our luggage in the car. We walked over to Magic Kingdom for a few hours before heading on home. It was a fun anniversary getaway.
Dates: Mar. 9 – 10, 2018
Back home, we’re now doing laundry and getting ready for another trip out this coming week to visit our daughter, Elizabeth, and the granddaughters. Our son-in-law is going on a two-week business trip to India and asked if we would consider coming out and keeping the girls company while he was away. How could we say no? We’ll be flying out Thursday morning.
