PCB 2014: Saturday 9.27.14

Saturday morning we got up early, packed everything up, loaded the car and headed out on the highway.  But not before making one last stop at Thomas' Donuts before we left town.  See you next year PCB!

We ate lunch at Whataburger, found a geocache in their parking lot, and was home by 8:00 p.m.

Until next time....

PCB 2014: Friday 9.26.14

Today was our last full day in Florida so I was going to make the most of the beach.  I went out bright and early.  On my way out, I hit my funny bone on the door.  Oh.My.Goodness. did it hurt.  I had to end up coming inside and held my elbow while laying face down across the bed crying.  Then all of a sudden my stomach started hurting and I got nauseated and hot.  I'm thinking I must of hit a nerve or something.  It hurt bad, and hurt for quite a few days.  I never realized how much I used my elbow until that week!

There was an exceptional amount of sting rays in the water on this day.  And they were there all day.  I saw them whenever I was out on the balcony and walking on the beach this morning.  I also saw quite a few jelly fish in the water and on the sand.  Between those and the sting rays, I didn't get in the ocean at all.  Bummer because it was my last day, but I didn't want to get attacked!

Since Shawn isn't much of a beach person, he went to play golf, and I went out to the beach and relaxed for quite a while.  I headed up to swim in the pool, only it was being overtaken by those lovebugs.

Since the pool was unusable, I went ahead and got a shower and got ready.  By then, Shawn was back from golf, so we went to lunch at Sonny's BBQ.  It was much better this time around!

After lunch, we decided to go on the Sea Screamer again.  The weather was so amazing for it on this night versus Thursday night.  There was an amazing sunset, and we saw lots of dolphins again!  I'm telling you, if you have never been on a trip on the Sea Screamer, you are missing out!

Meet Lynn and Rick - a couple we met at the Sea Screamer on Thursday night and then we saw them again there on Friday night!  

We also saw a couple weddings on the beach on this night!

It's hard to take a panoramic picture on a rocking boat!  LOL!!

New ink!

We ended the evening at Captain Anderson's for dinner and then back to the condo to start the packing process so that we could head back home bright and early Saturday morning.  I think I took pictures of every meal we ate, except at Captain Anderson's and completely forgot until it was dessert time to take food pictures.

PCB 2014: Thursday 9.25.14

We should of asked if Thomas' Donuts had a frequent donut eater card, cause I think we went there every morning for breakfast!  This morning was no exception. 

After we got our donuts, we made our way towards St. Andrew's Park cause it was pontoon boat day!  We rented the pontoon for the half day rental - from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  I was on my period, so I didn't even wear or bring a swimsuit, the temperature at 9:00 a.m. was only 66 degrees, with a high of 77 degrees while we would be out on the water, and it was very cloudy and windy.  I probably should of canceled the pontoon adventure all together, but it was all I talked about for almost the entire time I was planning this trip.  It definitely wasn't as fun as I had worked it up to be.  In fact, it was the most miserable thing we did the entire week :(  Between the already mentioned problems, and getting the boat motor stuck in the june grass stuff, we were both done before we really even got started.  In fact, we ended up back at the dock at noon to return it.

We unloaded the boat and loaded all of our stuff back in the car, located a geocache near the area we were in then we headed to Pineapple Willy's for lunch.  It was yummy once again.  I ended up getting the tropical chicken salad and a larger Pineapple Willy drink (non-alcoholic of course), and then Shawn got the Mahi-Mahi BLT.  We did a little shopping in their gift shop and Shawn got a new tshirt.

After lunch, we drove through St. Andrew's park again and killed some time till it was time for the SeaScreamer ride.

We were on the 4:30 p.m. sunset cruise, however it was so cloudy there wasn't a sunset. We did see lots, and I mean, lots of dolphins! However my dolphin pictures didn't pan out this trip.  Glad we decided to do the Sea Screamer a second day cause my dolphin pictures were much better the second day!

After the Sea Screamer, we went to Angelo's Steak Pit for our anniversary dinner.  We had never been before, but it had good reviews.  It's a huge restaurant, and was busy, but we were seated right away.  Shawn ordered the ribeye with seasoned veggies and I had the chopped steak, baked potato and salad.  All was yummy.  And for our anniversary, they brought us out a delicious piece of warm apple pie.  I think I devoured it before Shawn could even get a bite.

After dinner, well actually during dinner, I got so sleepy all I wanted to do was go back to the condo and go to bed.
