Wow, nobody there. What time did you go? I would think there would be some tourists there all the time.

^ It was around lunchtime--maybe 1:00pm or so--on an early September weekday. We were quite shocked at how empty it was, ourselves, to be honest.

We really didn't know much about it going in. But we quite enjoyed the experience.

In other new news....

I mentioned at the end of the update that we were heading to Ohio for vacation. For anyone who may have missed it, here's our Cedar Point/wedding/Merry-Go-Round Museum/random other stuff TR from Sandusky.

I've been to Emerils Orlando, but never Tchoup Chop which is named for the street in New Orleans of the Original Emeril's. I loved everything I ate... and I ate a ton.

I suspect that the location is the main reason for the lackluster lunchtime crowd. It's way off at the resort hotel rather in the middle of City Walk which has all the foot traffic.

Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

I've always wanted to check out Emiril's in CityWalk but it was always so busy. I didn't know about this other location so maybe I'll check that out next weekend!

We went to the Emeril's on City Walk last year. I'd say that was the best food I've had in Orlando (haven't been to V&A). Despite his celebrity chef status, Emeril seems to be maintaining good standards.

On Anastasia Island, in St. Augustine, is a confused and somewhat sad 18-hole mini golf establishment called...

Anastasia Miniature Golf
01P6098100.JPG
Yay, mini golf! And ice cream that used to be hand dipped but isn't now, I guess!
03P6098171.JPG
This back door is apparently the entrance.
05P6098168.JPG
Yeah, that's the ice cream. I am disappoint.
09P6098091.JPG
And this is the exit from the club house out onto the course here at Anastasia Miniature Golf.
10P6098167.JPG
So...this way, then?

Do NOT feed the American fish here. You will be arrested.

I really like the lumber holding the tree branches up.
28P6098128.JPG
I think I might add this photo to this thread's index!
30P6098113.JPG
So...there's a brand new wooden railing on the left, but I have to walk on the right....
34P6098144.JPG
Sure, I'll just do that. Thanks for the tip!
40P6098126.JPG
I can't remember why I took this photo. To show everyone how sweaty I was??
50P6098137.JPG
This is just weird.
54P6098155.JPG
Let me just say that this is way more terrifying in person.
56P6098149.JPG
All the Smisties look like little smants.
58P6098158.JPG
Really?

I'm with you, Smisty: Let's get out here.
