We enjoyed some French adult beverages while we watched the two guys with the chair act.  No matter how many
times you see this act, it is always funny and amazing. One little miscue (chair leg slipping) and they could get hurt
really bad.

We left here and went over to an area sort of to the side of France and on a bench in a shady place, I sat and
watched the world go by (while sipping a cool one ) while D laid on the bench next to me with her head in my lap and
took a much needed nap.

After her nap, we looked at all the fantastic topiary displays near France and then we went up and over the
bridge that's over the waterway that goes from the World Showcase Lake past the International Station where
we first came in and on to the lake where the EPCOT Resorts are.

We could hear bagpipes in the distance as we neared the Rose & Crow Tavern in the British Section where we had
eaten lunch earlier and knew that one of our favorite performances at EPCOT was underway --
the "Off Kilter" band at  Canada.

This band is great -- playing Celtic Rock, and all other sorts of rock and Canadian music -- is fantastic. The lead
singer/player plays the bagpipes, while two others play electric guitars, another on keyboards, and a drummer.
Dressed in Scottish Kilts, they are electrifying, entertaining, and funny.

After their performance, we slowly made our way back through the British Section and headed for the Les Chefs
de France Restaurant for our evening meal. Part of our Disney vacation package was something called the Dinning
Plan. For each "paid" night at our resort hotel, per person, we got 1 full service (table) meal, 1 counter meal (fast
food places) and 1 snack.  

The meal-deal price is great especially when you see how much it actually costs in person in the Parks themselves.
Of course, adult beverages are not covered -- oh well... :-)
