Well, two or three weeks have passed now since my latest trip to Walt Disney World. And, one of the things I particularly noticed this trip is the magic found in the quiet places...the less crowded places. It first hit me after a long day in the parks...I had a hankerin' for takin' the boat over to Fort Wilderness Campground for some reason...memories I suppose...
Anyways soon as I got there I started wanderin' around out at the Tri-Circle D...I found myself lovin' the quiet of the place...I chatted with a feller workin' with those huge horses...pushed the button to listen to the Colliope...and just generally walked by every horse's stall I could...there was somethin' downright peaceful about it all. Magic you might say.
Now, I got to thinkin' how findin' the quiet places on those busy days can make a Walt Disney World visit so much more enjoyable... like out thar on Tom Sawyer's Island...just wanderin' around, explorin' the caves and the fort, tryin' those barrel bridges and things, or just settin' at Aunt Polly's and watchin' the Liberty Bell Riverboat roundin' the bend in the river...
A great quiet place to eat is the Columbia Harbor House, upstairs...I found myself lovin' the food, and the quiet.
And, over thar at the Animal Kingdom, one of the best kept secrets of the place is the FlameTree Barbeque...great food and really peaceful outdoor surroundin's with exotic Florida birds all around ya...
Peace and quiet...they can be wonderful after weavin' through the crowds in other parts of the parks.
So...how about you folks?
You got a favorite, peaceful spot?
Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.
