It’s our last day here! Just so you know a little tear is forming as I type. I know, I know, everyone has to eventually get back to reality but I don’t want to! And I hate to sound winey but I really don’t want to go back!
Well, of course today was the day we didn’t want to take my camera with me on my walk on the beach. We woke up before sunrise and even though we were on the Gulf side I knew it would be beautiful.
We headed out and we were so blessed that we got to see dolphins! They seemed to be playing because they were going to the surface to blow air from their blow hold in such a rapid succession that it certainly wasn’t out of necessity. After a minute or so of that they continued on their way… no doubt hungry for breakfast—just like I was!
Today was of course, another repeat at Heavenly Biscuit. You’d think I would be sick of this place by now but I never get sick of great food!
After breakfast we headed to the Ostego Bay Foundation Marine Science Center. Our guide was Mary Anne and she was so delightful! You can tell she really enjoyed her job and really wanted to teach others about the ecology in the local area.
They have a touch tank at the Science Center with some rays and horse shoe crabs (which aren’t actually crabs at all!) We got to touch them and watch Mary Anne feed them—it was so nice to be so up close and personal.
Of course, we had to be a little silly as well! What’s a day without some silly-ness?
After our visit there (almost two hours!) we hit up Doc Fords again. We actually were going to try a different seafood joint but they had their specials listed as a Sloppy Joe and Chicken Parm. Let me get this straight—you’re a seafood joint ON THE WATER and you serve sloppy joe’s?! No thanks!
So, Doc Fords it was. It was another Yucatan Shrimp meal and they did not disappoint!
We had the opportunity to sit outside and it’s been such a nice day we went for it. Wouldn’t you know it about 10 minutes after we sat down the storms came in! They offered us tables inside but honestly, we weren’t by the edge so it didn’t bother us at all. In fact, it made it a little more fun!
Anyone else get caught in the rain at a restaurant? It’s happened to us a few times before but we’ve never been able to say we stayed outside and ate in it!
I’ve got to get packing so I’ll leave this post with some pictures from our walk tonight.
