A World of Fun

What a day! We woke early again to start our day at the Leaky Caudron restaurat for breakfast in Diagon Alley. Evidently, Universal Studios is laid out like a grocery store, in that they put the one thing you came for at the very back!! We spent a good ten minutes hurrying toward the Hogwarts Express to take us to our destination. The trip on that train was worth the long walk, though. Sitting in one of the cars we were treated to a scenic view, complete with several characters. The silhouettes of Harry & Ron & Hermione went past our closed door and we heard them talking in the aisle.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a feast for the eyes. While I saw kids in capes and wielding wands that worked interactive displays, I held off with purchasing just a couple postcards for my scrapbooks. Speaking of which, I came back to our room and played with the photos taken today and created the page above. Paper, brads and frame from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, and the seashells from Rucola Designs Summertime freebie.
Tomorrow, we head to Universal Islands of Adventure, where we start our day at the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade before visiting Hogwarts and all points magical. And if you don't recognize any of these "places" then you are not a Harry Potter fan!! LOL
As much fun as today was, I forgot to pack my gym shoes and am paying the price with poor tired feet and hips that want to lock in place! I will be more than happy to relax starting Sunday evening for our second part of vacation. More to follow!!
