Swans At Lake Eola



We spent Christmas 2009 in Cocoa Beach, Florida with some family. I’m not a huge fan of theme parks and I didn’t find the strip-mall ambiance of the beach towns on Florida’s Atlantic Coast very appealing. However, we stopped in the Lake Eola area of Orlando on our way to the airport and discovered that Orlando has at least one neighborhood which is not Disney-ified. There’s a large playground at the park and nice walks around the lake.
And, like this little girl and her mom, you might be able to see some swans up close.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    I have to admit that as many times as we visit Orlando, we haven’t been able to venture out of the Disney zone at all. Looks like this is a fun place to visit to escape the Mouse. :)
