Orlando Vacation 2015

This vacation was filled with a lot of firsts for me:

The first time flying by myself
The first time traveling to Florida
and my first vacation with the Miller clan.

It turns out that one week is really not long enough for a Florida vacation.

DAY 1 - Flying out from Montreal, an hour late due to a frozen fuel hatch, heading to Orlando
DAY 2 - My first morning with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice
DAY 2 - The resort pool with palm trees - I loved the blues
DAY 2 - Chocolate Kingdom
DAY 2 - Chocolate Kingdom - tasting cocoa liquor, except Bee who got milk chocolate.  My stick is the one in the middle.
DAY 2 - Chocolate Kingdom - making custom 1lb chocolate bars with your choice of 16 different toppings

On Day 3 we went to Sea World. About half way through the day I had to switch out a full memory card and discovered later in the day that it fell out a new hole in my waist bag. So, I lost all my morning photos including the flamingos, stingrays and part of the backstage tour.  Here are some of the remaining shots I was able to come home with:
