ICEBAR Orlando

Icebar Orlando

On Saturday, Ron and I headed to Mickey Mouse World for a visit to ICEBAR Orlando. We’d bought tickets through Travel Zoo a few months ago and finally had the chance to get away for the weekend. When we checked in with the hostess, we were each given a fur coat, gloves and a token for a drink of our choice. Then we were ushered into the icy bar. The room was actually a lot smaller than I was expecting but it was still very cool (no pun intended). Everything was made of ice, including the bar stools and tables, several ice sculptures and a giant ice throne, all lit with color-changing lights. The drinks even came in cups made out of ice. Ron was a good sport, even though he absolutely hates being cold. It probably helped that they had Fireball Whiskey, one of his favorites. :-)

Vessels of Freedom
Harbors of Healing
(Kenny Chesney, “Boats”)
Yesterday was one of those beautiful, unusual 80-degree February days. We took our boat out for the first time in months and it was wonderful to hear the ospreys, see dolphins and feel the sun on my skin again. My “solar batteries” have been recharged.
