Vacation Day #17 and #18

We've been having a lot of fun exploring the area. Yesterday and today we got on the trolley and went down to an area called John's Pass. It's known for being the place to hang out around here. Shopping and restaurants galore. We luckily found out the trolley is handicap accessible so no worries about driving or parking for mom...
There is also a boardwalk area and we could stand there all day. We've seen dolphins, pelicans, egrets, and herons. Also yesterday I seen a manatee right from our hotel window. Amazing!! Couldn't get a picture of him though. He was too quick. Plus I was shocked to see him in the wild. Only my 3rd time seeing them in the wild.
 
 
Today then we went back down to John's Pass and went on a fun Pirate themed 2 hour boat trip...
 
 
 It was a really fun trip. They told some pirate stories. Gave the kids all water guns and told them to spray the adults. Yep of course right as I was standing there so I got wet haha. They really loved it though. Jeremiah even got an official pirate certificate. How fun! 

When we got back we did some souvenir shopping. Just forced to you know. Got to support that local economy haha. We played some card games together when we got back to our hotel. Tomorrow we're off to an aquarium to explore.

  1. I finally was able to take the time to get caught up on your vacation Oh you are having the best time. I am sort of a Star Wars Geek - but only for the first three. The Pirate Ship adventure you had today looks awesome
