1895 Paris train wreck
(It is amazing to me that they had equipment to lift or work with something the weight of that engine!)
Greetings from Kissimmee, Florida. Home of Disney World! (Thought it was in Orlando, didn't you!) I smiled when I wrote that. There was a time I didn’t know the difference in Disney World and Disney land. Of course my girl knew, I think women know everything! (except how to lay-off a house or set trusses!(Dar up in the N. Woods even knows that!) lol)
On our first trip across country Colette and Sonny was with us in a pop-up camper. That is a tent on wheels! We found a campground in Los Angeles and set up the little camper. Sonny and I walked around the campground. At the back was a high fence about 10-12 feet tall. We saw a man walking, we could see him from his waist up above the fence. We kept looking and saw balloons and other decorations and heard music. It took a few minutes but we realized we had camped beside Disney, and they were getting set for a parade.
(This is the pop-up. This picture was at the Grand Canyon I didn't have one from Hollywood!)
Back at the camper we excitedly told the girls, “We are camped right next to Disney World.” Then told them what we had seen.
“Honey we can’t be next to Disney World, which is in Orlando, Florida. This is California and that must be Disney Land!” (Girls can take the wind out of your sails wanting things to be ‘correct’. LOL)
In front of that Chinese Theater Sonny and I picked Triggers hoof prints for a picture.
Below, Sherry and Colette chose Debbie Reynolds prints.
We took a guided bus tour of Hollywood and had a great time. Before we left the area Sherry wanted to drive back thru Hollywood and see some more STARS homes. We laughed ourselves silly comparing our appearance (car and pop-up camper) to the Beverly Hillbillies as we drove thru Beverly Hills past stars homes i.e. Lucille Ball (can’t think of more, ha!). Passing Rolls Royce’s and exotic sports cars while rubber necking at the sights. We had a ball.
But we are at Disney because we like this park, Sherwood Forest, is free to us this year. Disney gate is about ½ mile. I noticed the price here is close to $100 a night if you drive in off the street. As my grandsons say, “Living well on the cheap!”
