…Continued from Part 1…

I should mention that by now I had developed a rather large blister on the instep of my foot that was making my already hard time walking because of stupid weight gain, even harder. Couple that with water retention and the fact that somewhere along the line I twisted my foot too, I was not having a good time. I had some blister plasters with me, but they were rubbish at staying in place, so I thought it was a good idea to go out to Walgreens and buy a bandage to try and keep everything in place, and to give my foot a little bit of support.

Whilst we went off on that errand, (the nearest one was a few miles away) Liam went to the swimming pool, which was his favourite activity on resort. When we returned I strapped up my foot and asked Liam if he wanted to come to Downtown Disney with us on the boat – the answer was no, he’d rather be swimming, so we left him there! It was quite nice to have some couple time together, and the boat ride from Old Key West to Downtown Disney is really relaxing. Since I don’t have much commentary, I’ll just leave you with photos of the journey there and back!

The boat ride is around 15-20 minutes, and it was nice to get a different view of Downtown Disney, as well as to see the other parts of the resort.

Since I was in agony with my foot, we didn’t actually venture far at all and just got back on the boat to go back! Lazy, I know. I wish we’d gone over to Characters in Flight and gone up in the balloon – it’s been on our Disney Bucket List for 3 visits now, and this year was perfect with all the really good weather (and by good, I mean, little rain and lightning!) Oh well, next visit for sure…

Once back at Old Key West, we had a little wander in Conch Flats General Store, and I did a little bit of nature photography, before heading to the pool to find Liam.

We bought an afternoon snack to tide us over till dinner that evening in the form of nachos (with a cheese dip, and I will use that phrase loosely as it’s more like liquid plastic! ) and a fruit cup. I do believe that take-out desserts from a previous dinner may have been eaten by Liam!

The bag of nachos was huge, enough easily for two to share. The fruit cup had melon and grapes. I love how the fruit in Florida is always sweet! Both were one snack credit each.
