Day 6 – The “Colonial Quarter”

Trixie - snoozing in her carriage and helping her Mum walk - was not excited in the abandoned Colonial Quarter.

Trixie – snoozing in her carriage and helping her Mum walk – was not excited in the abandoned Colonial Quarter.

We worked our way down the road a bit more, visiting a few shops before returning to a “Colonial Quarter” – an alleged reproduction of Colonial St. Augustine that opened at the leisurely hour of 10:00 and filled up 2 acres of land – just – not all together, nor all accessible, and the alleged actors were nowhere to be found. A pair of dippy ladies were allegedly running the registers in the massive gift shop that made the attraction look like an afterthought, and after talking us into a combo ticket, the proceeded to prove they were so inept at running the register that we nearly left. But Mum wanted to go in, and so we did, on a combo ticket they refused to reconsider putting back to a one-attraction admission.

The attraction was a ghost town, abandoned of human activity, and sparsely decorated with antiques ‘showing’ how the old quarter was; we were told (after they sold the ticket) that tours began at 11:00; and we simply did not have the time or energy to waste waiting for the other cast members to roll out of bed.
