Day 85 - Cirque Du Soleil

Tuesday (85)
 - Another cool night. The heat pump is getting a lot of exercise. My prescriptions were available for pickup at Walgreens which is about 1¼ mile walk from the RV so that seemed like a good excuse for a little exercise. I don’t know why I feel a need to have a reason to walk but something in me does. I seem to have a problem with just walking without going somewhere. 
 
After the early test session, we headed to Disney Springs for dinner and a show. We also went to Gideon’s Bakehouse for one of their half-pound cookies and a slice of cake. (For dessert later).

This is their cake selection. I picked a slice of the Eternal Flame cake (the one with the red icing!)

Right now, we are waiting for the Cirque Du Soleil show. No photos allowed during the show but here is the stage before the show started. It was a wonderful performance. I’ve wanted to see one of their shows since the late 80s. Very little dialogue, a lot of acrobatics, and a story line. A modern circus and more.

Here is the slice of cake. I had about a third of it for dessert after we got back from Disney Springs. Very chocolate-y. Maybe, over the top chocolate.

We saw Cirque de Soleil about 10 years ago and it was sensational. A performance which actually lived up to the hype!

It really did live up to the hype! I remember some TV shows going through the training and development of acts. I don’t even remember when that was. Maybe mid-90s?
