Transfer Alert

Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on March 13, 2019

DEAR FRIENDS,

I’ve wanted to move my blog to my website for a long time. My webmistress is attempting to do this now. But if you get lost in the shuffle and are suddenly no longer getting my posts in your email, PLEASE RESUBSCRIBE! We’ll have to wait to see which site we end up on, either still here or on my website, but either way, I don’t want to lose you. This is the reason why I haven’t been posting much lately. I am saving my more in-depth articles until after the transfer. So please bear with me, and when the dust settles, make sure you are still getting my posts as desired. I’ll make an announcement either way.

Orlando Explorer

Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on March 4, 2019

Our most recent visit to Orlando had us visiting Epcot for the Festival of the Arts. I tasted the mushroom risotto at the Masterpiece Kitchen around World Showcase but held off eating more until we went to the Morocco café for a vegetarian platter with hummus and more.

At Disney Springs another day, I indulged in a root beer float at Ghiradelli. We enjoyed the ambiance as we strolled through the marketplaces and past numerous restaurants. Our adventures continued at historic Winter Garden as we strolled downtown. The main street still has its old-time charm, while a brewery hall attracts a young crowd with several fast-food eating choices. Here’s a peek at the lobby of an earlier era Edgewater Hotel and an adjacent ice cream shop.

We took walks at Disney’s Riverside and Boardwalk resorts, and gained a couple of extra pounds from dining out the entire weekend. Now we’re home, and we brought a cold along with us as a souvenir.
