I know this is probably just wishful thinking - but I wonder if Lij is tricking us over King Kong. He said how disappointed the hobbits were that they couldn't do their cameos in KK after all. But Lij did visit them on set in NZ back in April - so why couldn't he have done his then? I wouldn't be surprised if there is a brief appearance of at least one little hobbit:)

Finally posting some of my Elf pics - these are mainly of the beautiful Wyndham Orlando Resort but I have also posted a few of a very distant Elijah - sorry I couldn't come up with anything better than this!!






















I posted a pic of fish & chips NZ style in my NZ report - this is fish & chips Florida style. They're actually yucca chips!!




The ubiquitous ducks!! They wander around the tables in the poolside restaurant waiting for titbits!!












Ripley's Museum next to the site - your eyes are not deceiving you, it really did tilt at this odd angle.

These are really nice, even the Elijah ones. The ones I took at ORC are so blurry they are unrecognizable.

The resort is lovely. I can almost feel the sultry air. I especially enjoyed the little duckies and the rainbow.

Oh, and were the yucca chips yucky or yummy? : )

A lot of my pics come out blurry too. The resort was beautiful - and the tropical climate was lovely as long as you didn't try to move too much!! The yucca chips were ok - but I still prefer potato chips (or fries as you'd probably call them).

Thanks so much for posting these pics! It's always lovely to see anything featuring our darling Lijah... :)

The resort looks wonderful! Exactly how I imagined it...

Yes, yucca chips - good or not?

The yucca chips were ok but a bit strange when you're used to potato chips. It was interesting to try them but I do prefer potato!!

Lovely pictures! And I'd like to hear more about that Ripley's Museum.

I so rarely see rainbows that when I do I know that something special is about to happen. :)

And as far as the hobbit cameos, that would've been wonderful. I still hope someday that the four of them are reunited on film somewhere. I'd love a movie about the four of them not as hobbits. I think any movie with all of them would be a blockbuster.

We never actually went inside that museum - just didn't get round to it I'm afraid. Apparently there are several Ripley Museums in different US locations.
I love rainbows and always take a pic if I have my camera handy. There is something very special about them.
It would be wonderful to see the four guys reunited in a film - perhaps one day :)

He did look beautiful in the yellow t-shirt - but then he looks beautiful in anything!!
I thought perhaps yucca chips were a well-known thing in the US but apparently not as everyone seems curious about them!! They were ok - but I still prefer potato chips (fries)!!

I'm sorry I missed you at ELF. I can see the back of my head in your pictures, so you weren't sitting that far away from me!

The pictures are lovely - and it's nice to look at them without having to relive the humidity. :)

WOW Beautiful photos. Looks like a gorgeous place. Love the ducks and the rainbow. It's so rarely that you can photograph a rainbow. Are yucca chips actually made from the yucca plant? Never heard of them.

It was a beautiful place. I believe yucca chips are made from the plant - they were a bit strange but ok. I still prefer potato chips though!!

I think Elijah did do the cameo, from what I read some time ago. I don't know about the others.
