Wow! What a great day (but I'm guessing that the first whole day of vacation always feels this way :)
|Izzy, enjoying her donuts with an ocean view....|
Joacim was still asleep when Izzy and I woke up, so we decided to let him snooze a bit longer and headed down to the beach.
|It was a beach filled with all sorts of stuff!|
|I have no idea what kind of sea grass this is, but it's pretty freaky looking....like a bunch of strange worms....|
|A hawk carrying it's breakfast|
We found a brochure at the hotel that described a boat outing with a naturalist, and it sounded perfect! I mean, if we're going to spend the money, we might as well learn something along the way, right?
|Once we got to Picnic Island, we got off the boat and used the nets provided to search for creatures.|
|Pretty as a postcard!|
|Here's a tiny little seahorse that someone collected....it was wiggling all over the place!|
|She held it!!! I can't believe it but she DID IT!!!|
|Here's a quick look at all of the little critters we got to see up close!|
|This sea slug was pretty cool...it squirted purple ink!!!|
|Izzy wanted to get her picture taken with the naturalist (Lindsey)!|
|Wooohoooo! Dolphins successfully spotted!!!!!!|
It was a GREAT trip! We used Adventures in Paradise Cruises, and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!!!
After the cruise was over, it was back to the pool!
We decided to go off the island for dinner. I had 3 separate recommendations for Doc Fords, so we HAD to try it! Needless to say, it didn't disappoint!
|I don't even know what the heck kind of mojito this was, but I CAN say that it was damn tasty!|
And we had a beautiful sunset as we crossed the bridge back to Sanibel from Ft. Meyers. What a glorious, wonderful day!!!
