The buccaneers were a bust but the day wasn’t over

August 7, 2016

We did try to join the Buccaneers to hunt for treasure – but after being warmly welcomed aboard and a few yarns with a couple of the pirates, at the sight of a lightning we were promptly kicked back off! Apparently pirates don’t like storms.

The day wasn’t a bust – we did go back to our apartment for ice cream and a movie.

This morning we headed out to Gator Beach (at Fudpuckers) to feed and hang out with a bunch of gators. The mermaid was an unexpected bonus!


Mini golf morning, beach afternoon

This morning we all packed into the Kiwi Importer mobile and headed out for….

18 holes of mini golf!

A heap of fun – but after 18 holes we were ready to cool off.


and so headed back to our regular spot at the beach.

Jellyfish and jetskiing

August 2, 2016

We were joined by a few more friends today and headed back to the beach.

The jellyfish collecting was fun until Marco and Victoria both got stung.

And jet skiing was a blast.

Another fun day at the beach!

Big thanks to Erin for contributing photos to our blog!

Texas through Louisiana through Mississippi through Alabama to….



Straight to the pool. Dinner. Then bunked up for the evening (with 10 minutes of TV in our room!). We have a feeling this is going to be a vacation to remember.
