Water Water Everywhere

This week’s theme for the Wordless Wednesday blog hop hosted by Focused on the Magic is Water.  I love this topic.  Water is everywhere at Walt Disney World.  There are two places that my wife and I like to take water shots: Kilimanjaro Safaris and on the Friendships.  Here’s our sampling of water shots for this week’s theme.
