Malaysian Orchids and A Small Disney Town in Florida

Another day for a double post is here. First, it is Pink saturday hosted by Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/. Go and tour Beverly's blog and all her participants' and you will see so many pretty pinks.
For today, I would like to show you our pink Malaysian orchids.
I really like them because the flowers look so unusual.


Well, Saturday is also our sightseeing day so please stick around. If you want to join, I will have Mr. Linky down below. Just add your name and your permalink and please copy the SS button unto your blog.
Would you like to go to a little town in Florida that was developed by Disney? The town is called Celebration and naturally, it is located near Orlando.

After arriving from a cruise in Port Canaveral, we decide to go to Celebration and have lunch there. I lived in FL for 25 years before moving to MS but I have never been here until John decided to drive through there.I am so glad we went there cause it is such a charming town. Just look at that bear topiary right outside a doll shop.
It was summer but I had a great time browsing through this Christmas store.
Right across the restaurant where we ate was this spectacular water view.
And of course AJ and John had to relax after eating.
I love the crape myrtles that line the streets.
A wet deck in a public area where kids can enjoy especially when it is hot.
A lot of people just take bikes around the little town.
and they have these cute little vehicles for rent too that will take you around town.
If you live here, you never have to leave this community cause they have everything, banks, playground, community hall, quaint shops and boutiques, restaurants and they even have their own movie theater.
Beautiful Lilies
Not sure what this building is but it looks interesting.
same with this one.
Beautiful homes.


Abundance of greenery.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of Celebration, FL. Thank you all for coming along!
If you want to participate and of course I would love to encourage you, please enter your name and permalink below and I am hoping you will also copy the Sightseeing Saturday button on your blog and I thank you in advance!

Christine! Celebration is my favorite place!!! We looked at homes there, but since we lived in Winter Park near my son's school, it was a tough decision. We had friends there, though and visited often. My son's friend from LHPS lived there. I still dream about it. To me, it is perfect. A NEV to get around in and everything at hand. I believe it was the Columbia restaurant where we always ate. At Halloween, the kids could just trick or treat while we sat at the restaurant. Thanks for bringing back such great memories.

Hi Christine! I hope you've been doing well. Love your pictures in Celebration. We went to Disney in April, and I was amazed by the topiaries. Your orchid is beautiful too. Love the photo of the butterfly at the top. It's gorgeous!

It looks like a nice place to while away the day. I could have spend a few hours in that Christmas shop! There looked like there were lots of sparkly pretties in there! Have a great weekend and Happy Pink to you!

Hi, Christine,
It was so great meeting you and hubby yesterday. I really enjoyed the meeting and the food :) The "Magnolias" will have to meet again.
I love that little town. It would be like living in a movie there, I think, where everything is perfect. :)
Hugs,

P.S. Thanks for the fudge happy.
I haven't opened it yet, but it won't last long. :)

Oh my gosh Christine, Celebration looks like heaven on earth. I would have loved to have shared it with you and your family in person, but your post will have to do. Just beautiful. I also look forward to seeing what lovely bloom you bring each week. So sorry for the delay, had too many things going on. Please have a great Happy Pink Saturday and enjoy your trips, Char
