DSCF0821.JPG One of our last days in Florida, Chris took us to the outdoor market in Orlando around Lake Eola. The day was quite warm and the sun was hot. We were glad for a bit of shade along the path. I thought I had my sunscreen with me. It was in another bag, unfortunately.

Debbie opted to visit someone she knew who lived in Florida. We went one way and she went in another direction.DSCF0832.JPG Me, posing for a change

We met Chris's friend, Morocco, in the market area and walked to his building and went up to look out over the city from his balcony.

Then down the quiet elevator to the parking level where we found the car and drove away and back to Lake Mary.
