Florida Part 6: Disney’s Boardwalk



One evening in Florida, we decided to go to Disney’s Boardwalk for a meal. We’d never been before, even though we’d always meant to go, so I was so happy when we finally went! We had a look on the internet first at the restaurants that were there and decided one called Kouzzina looked best. It’s owned by Cat Cora, who is apparently a famous chef in the US, but we hadn’t heard of her before over here. The restaurant is Greek inspired, but with an American twist too. For example, my mum had a lamb burger thing. Anyway, the short is that it was AMAZING, best food I have ever….ever had!! I had a Fisherman’s Stew. I was a bit wary of ordering it and was going to go for a chicken stew instead, but Ben persuaded me, and I’m so glad he did!! It had prawns, mussels, scallops, swordfish and fennel in a very garlicky (how do you spell that?!) tomato sauce with crispy bread, unbelievably amazing. My mouth is watering right now!!

The boardwalk itself was so beautiful. It is supposed to be a bit like coastal New England I believe, and was so lovely. Not only were there lovely buildings, free entertainment along the boardwalk, and a beautiful lake, but there was also an amazing sunset that evening, which made for beautiful pictures! I didn’t have my camera yet, but everyone managed to get some lovely photos (I’m not sure whose these ones are!).
Red Dress: Topshop
Wedges: New Look 
Bag: c/o Matalan 
Told you it was beautiful didn’t I? It was a really really lovely evening altogether =)
Now I just have a few other photos that don’t seem to fit anywhere else! The first is from Busch Gardens, my dad was determined to go on the water ride, but no one else wanted to get wet, so we refused and my mum had to go on with him, so there she is, in her poncho!!
And now some other pictures, although they wouldn’t turn out how I wanted them to!! This is my new amazingly awesome Esther Williams swimming costume from For Luna (they do the Modcloth swimsuits there!! And they’re cheaper for us Brits, and possibly Europeans, not sure, because of the shipping!). The swimsuit is so so cute, but unfortunately the pictures just don’t do it justice!! We didn’t spend any time on them really, it was like,’Quick, I’m about to get in the pool, take some pictures!!’. I’ll do some better ones sometime, but trust me, it is amazing!!
Oh and I’ll give you some tips about buying these Esther Williams swimsuits: I read all over on the internet and in reviews that these swimsuits run small so to get a size up. Generally I fit between an 8 and 10 UK (4-6 US), so I thought I’d get the size 10 UK (which is actually listed as a US 8 on the website), but that and the 12 were out of stock, so I deliberated for ages then decided to match up my actual measurements to the size chart on the site, which told me I should get the 8. I was still unsure but I decided to go for it, even though I was told by someone else who owns it that the 8 wouldn’t go over her hips and she’s a size 8-10 too buuuuttt….. it arrived, and it fits perfectly!! Like a glove, honestly!! The trick is to actually look at the size chart and match your measurements to it, even if you think you’re a certain size, definitely check! The 10 would have been far too big on me, but the one I got is perfect!
And a final sunset picture:

    That looks like fun, and the way you described the food… my mouth is watering too! One of the best parts of traveling for me is an excuse to eat in restaurants hah.

    That bathing suit looks amazing on you though, goodness!

    Disney’s Boardwalk is soooooo nice!!! Disney, in general, is amazing 🙂 I only live a few hours away! Well, “The Boardwalk” is supposed to be reminiscent of the early 20’s Jersey Shores.
