Living ~400lbs

… and believe me I am still alive

Vacation photos!

Warning: vacation photos ahead.  :)

At the hotel

These gents live near the pool, hot tub, and laundry of the resort we stayed at in November.  The resort had a New Orleans theme, down to beignets and gumbo on the menu and loads of wrought iron.

Cash machine
A cash machine with an … interesting bank name (Village Lock and Safe).

Part of what charmed me about this ATM was how it was decorated to NOT look like a typical ATM.  “Village Lock and Safe”?

Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood. - Marie Curie
A quote (one of many) with a scientific or search-for-knowledge bent.

“Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.” – Marie Curie

This quote, and others, are part of a plaza celebrating scientific progress. I was pleased to see Curie represented, and her quote made me think.  I think there are things that should be feared — and that fear can prevent understanding.  Then there’s how her lifespan was impacted by her work…

Anyone want to guess where we went?

  1. I wanna guess… did you go to Florida, near Orlando???

    I love the photo of the alligators – they look so joyous!

    Tell us more!!

    1. Orlando is definitely in the neighborhood ;)

  2. Port Orleans French Quarter! Ah, but I know it well. Of the two Port Orleans resorts, I do prefer Riverside but have stayed at FQ several times. Yay Disney! I’m jealous — I don’t get to go back until October or so.

    1. Yup, that was the hotel :)

  3. Disneyworld is my guess. The “Jazzy” looking “alligators” reminds me of their New Orleans section at DisneyWorld. I’ve never been, but my sister went last year and I saw lots of pictures.

    Hope it was fun!

    1. Yup – the Port Orleans French Quarter resort, formerly Port Orleans. The other photos are from the Magic Kingdom (Village Lock & Safe), Epcot and Disney Studios :)

  4. […] Posted on February 9, 2010 by living400lbs As hinted yesterday, my vacation was Disney World! For a week! Yes, it was fantastic.  We stayed at Port Orleans […]
