August 2nd. Up early to the supermarket to get food for the day knowing it was a long drive and that at around mid-day we would be unlikely to be close to anywhere to buy lunch. We left West Yellowstone and straight away hit the West Entrance to the park which is on the outskirts of the town.

For our first week we stayed in a villa just off the 192 in Kissimee
(nr Orlando) with the four of us and another 5 family members who had
already been in Florida for a fortnight. It was basically a Disney
week with one day in Sea World.
