Winter In The (Almost) Summer

This trip has been so busy that I’ll still be telling you all about it when I get back to New Jersey!

I can’t even remember where I left off.  It’s a good thing I’m keeping a journal of the trip so that I’ll be able to catch up when I get home.

I know there’s too much going on when I start to have peculiar dreams.  Last night I dreamed I was invited to Kim Kardashian’s wedding!  Now THAT would be interesting!

Sunday we spent  to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to see Winter the Dolphin.  Winter lost her tail after being tangled in a crab trap.

Winter!

The facility is amazing and the work they do there to rescue and rehabilitate injured marine animals is incredible.  Their focus is to rehabilitate the animals and have them return to the wild.  Those who could not survive in the wild have a home for life.  It was a great experience and if you’re ever in the Clearwater, it is well worth the time and effort.

After our visit to the Aquarium, we headed to the Palm Pavillion in Clearwater Beach.

I’ve heard about this from Gail and Alice for a long time but we’ve never gotten there.  It was well worth the wait.

This is only half of my lunch. I forgot the photo until half way through.  Seems to be my new issue, but I’ll work with it… 😦  I had the Veggie Flatbread.  It had hummus, zucchini, yellow squash, portabella mushroom, corn green peppers, red onion and Parmesan cheese.  It was delicious and just filling enough.  The prices there were quite good too.

Ray, Alice and Gail…Feed Us Now!

Gail, Me and Alice with Clearwater Beach behind us!

On the way back home, we stopped at an interesting spot in Dunedin.  It’s a wall where an artist paints portraits of pets who have passed away.

It is a fascinating thing and wraps around the entire building.  It’s a very nice tribute and it was interesting to see.

Not sure what the day holds today but I’m sure it will be interesting.  I can’t believe we’ve been here for a week already and still have 3 days to go.  We certainly have filled up every minute.  It’s been so much fun.  But I do miss Ralph and I’ll be Very happy to see him on Wednesday.

Happy Monday!
