On Friday I headed to the airport...
There's an informative display up front, highlighting the techniques and tools of the stonecarvers. Pictures of Zimbabwe line the walls all the way to the next concourse.
Anyway! So, I was on my way to Celebration, Florida, for an EGA stitching retreat. See, I'm actually a member of a chapter in Florida, even though I live in Atlanta. DF Teresa's chapter was in need of additional members, so I joined to "help out". But when I heard that the regional celebration was IN Celebration (the town that Disney built, so to speak), I had to go.
We stayed at the Celebration Bohemian hotel.
So this was us most of the weekend, stitching away:
Speaking of walking, I did spend a relaxing lunch on Saturday strolling around, exploring, and, most importantly...
When we weren't stitching, we were either shopping (I'll have to post my acquisitions later), or having really, Really, REALLY good food. Friday night we ate at D'Antonios, which had excellent Italian food. Saturday, we we to the Columbia restaurant, which has OUTSTANDING Spanish/Cuban cuisine.
Sunday, we went to Raglan Road (in Downtown Disney) for excellent Irish food. Here's my Guinness-laced beef stew, crisp green beans and fantastic soda bread with brown sugar/Guinness reduction.
Well, I'm out of superlatives. Guess I'd better close this post out!
|Nothing like a weekend away right before vacation.|
