30 Minutes in the Life: March 2019

While the opportunity is still available, I like to try and spend time with my brother when he visits the USA.  He’s been a bit of a frequent flyer the past couple of years, but will stop soon.  We were fortunate to have him come through in December just in time for Amy’s wedding.  It was perfect to be able to have family with us on that day.

Then this past March he flew back for a big conference.  Next month he will be in San Antonio.  Not sure if I will get to spend time with him on that trip as I have been out sick for the past 2 weeks.

However, he had one day free with this March trip and it so happened that it was Amy’s husbands birthday on that day.  So as a family we all did a trip to Epcot.  We stayed up there 2 nights and got to spend the whole day walking around Epcot.  And yes I survived but my feet ached by the end of the day.  Down side is that I picked up a flu bug and it just flattened me.  I have been exhausted and tired and coughing for 2 weeks now and have just managed to pull together a few images for this blog.  We chose Epcot because it had the Flower event on in March.  And that aside I am not a big thrill rider so at least it had something of interest for me.

Here are some images from the day spent at Epcot.

The flower show was as usual spectacular and I loved seeing all the Disney characters

Bees are such an integral part of the life’s survival.  It is so important to continue to protect the bees in our communities.

The gardens were colorful and beautiful.

This display featured the junk that is found washed ashore or in our rivers.  We are dealing with a major crisis with the junk that is polluting our rivers and oceans.  We can take a stand and make a difference.

I love sea horses and looking at these tanks reminds me of our scuba diving days in Mozambique, where the reefs are beyond beautiful and the color is so bright.

Of course we went looking for Dory and Nemo while we were there.

Cars in flowers. Just got to love it.

We moved on to visiting the countries and this one was taken in Mexico.  The place was super busy.

A Chinese dragon with a very interesting dragon face.  China had a display of the different creatures your birth sign falls under.  I am apparently a Tiger,  sensitive, emotional and capable of great love.  On the flip side I was also labeled stubborn, hothead and rebel.  So watch out for me.

The amphitheater had Steve Aguirre from the band Journey playing music that week and so we made a point of stopping by.

Apparently I must have listened to Journey’s music because I knew most of the songs.

After walking back to the hotel and taking a breather, we caught the boat back to the park to watch the fireworks.

It was a pretty impressive display and at the end we head back to the ferry boat to catch a ride back to the hotel.  Unfortunately we all packed up and left the next morning, the family back to South Florida and my brother on his long journey home to South Africa.

I am one of those people that can give and take on the theme parks.  To be honest I did Epcot 8 years ago and I can probably wait another 8 years.  That said it was good to be with my brother and have the whole family together for a change.  It was definitely a long and tiring day.

Thank you for joining us for another month of 30 Minutes. Just a reminder that this is a circle blog, so take some time to visit my friend Sonia Eppel Fotografie and see what she has for you this year.
