Wal-Mart at 2am
If you are like us, the first night that you get to your villa you will be absolutely shattered, after all, to your body 9pm is actually 2am the following day, you try your best to stay awake and get on to American time, but eventually, you succumb and have to go to bed, you fall asleep, but then, at between 2am and 3am American time, (7am to 8am English time), if you are like us, the lights come on, you are wide awake and there is absolutely no chance of going back to sleep. We used to sit around, bored senseless, flipping through the TV channels and wondering what to do until daylight came.
Don’t do that, do something constructive.
Most of the flights from the UK arrive late-ish, so when you have arrived at the villa that you are staying at, got unpacked, put all of the clothes away, had a reccy to see all is well if you own the villa, or that the villa does as it says it does if you are renting, had a cup of tea or coffee, it is usually quite late, so you haven’t the time or the inclination to go grocery shopping. Relax, don’t worry about it, because when you wake up at 2 or 3am, Wal-Mart is open, at least the one at Craggans Crossing is.
The place is fantastic at that time of night, the only people that are there, apart from the staff, are Brits who have flown in that day and can’t sleep. It’s empty, the place is absolutely empty, you can stroll around in a world of your own and take time to look at the many offers that they have, get your groceries in at your leisure and still have time to get to Perkins, or wherever you favour for breakfast and a full day at the parks.
Wal_Mart at Craggans Crossing is a new, big store; it sells everything from Groceries through medicals to cycles and plastic deer with targets on their rumps, you can easily spend several hours getting essential supplies and then looking through the clothes, TV’s, hi fi equipment, in fact, almost everything that you could possibly want, whether you are an owner, or just renting.
So, next time you are in Florida, and you find yourself awake at an ungodly hour, don’t waste the time that you have just waiting for daylight to come and for the ones who are lucky enough to sleep through to the morning to get up, do something useful, go to a 24 hour Wal-Mart and get your supplies.
