Eating Lunch with the Sea Turtles, Sea Bass and Sharks.
At the Shark Reef Café.

Too Bad We Missed Them. They Were Tucked Away for the Day.
An Old Shrimp Boat from the Gulf.
Smelling the Sea Air.
We Live Only Minutes Away…But a Visit is Always Magical.

Wonderful Magic. Mixed with Some Silly.
And a Quick Hop to Home.
