Friends on the Road July 5, 2020 A group of people we saw but did not get to meet. Their story and their photos are here.
A woman in need of help because her car wouldn't start and a man who stopped his car to help her when we flagged them down. See them and the jump here.
Kimberly, her husband and daughter. She rescued us from a soggy, rained-on lunch by letting us share their table under the shelter. We didn't ask for her (or their) photo because her husband looked too angry. (I guessed it was more about the rain ruining their family vacation than his wife saving our food from turning into a soppy mess, but I could be wrong.)
Aaliyah and Charlie- two cute teen girls who were at Aquatica. Charlie rode on the tube ride with Katelyn because it required two people and Mel was too cold to get wet. See them here.
The friendly lifeguard at Aquatica who let Kate and Charlie go on the ride even though they were closing. You can see him in the video here.
July 4, 2020 Sea World Orlando (pre-van build) Luke and Brian - the friendly and sociable guys who were concerned about Katelyn overheating in the sun. See them here.
Jeremiah and his adorable kids. We remember Owen's name because Dad corrected him frequently for pestering his sisters. We shared a float and joked about being a fake family. Arianna- the front desk manager at the Holiday Inn & Suites who went above and beyond with her amazing attitude. By the time we thought to get their photo, we were on a water ride and Mel's cell phone isn't waterproof.
