The View From Our Balcony!

This can all be seen from our balcony!

We also have this really cool draw bridge right outside the hotel. The boats line up and wait for them to raise the bridge up, so that they can pass beneath it, to the other side. You will hear a bell ring, (usually every 30 minutes, if there are boats waiting) and they stop all traffic and pedestrians. Then the bridge slowly starts going up. Sometimes, there are several boats/ships waiting to cross and it takes a while before they lower the bridge again. We waited for over ten minutes to turn into our hotel because they had everything stopped.

I got to visit with my Aunt today! We haven't seen each other since I was a toddler. It was nice to "re-meet" her. We had a fun time shopping, and going to lunch at the Rainforest Cafe. I LOVE that place!
