Dolphin Cruise

Today is Shelby's 20th birthday. We planned to take a dolphin cruise on the trip and Shelby loves dolphins. It made sense to take the trip on her birthday. It was a fun cruise. We saw lots of dolphins and other wildlife. The weather was nice, but hot. The breeze on the water helped with that.

We saw a boat pulling some crab nets and the dolphins were following them. They like to eat the fish that get caught in the nets. The guys on the boat were also feeding the dolphin from the boat which is a no no and against the law. It did allow us to see a lot of dolphin activity though.

We found another spot with dolphin activity. It was fun to watch them play.

Along the way we saw an Egret's nest and a Brown Pelican.

After the cruise, we went to eat lunch at Wintzell's Oyster House. It was very good. Dinner was at Franco's Italian Restaurant. It was excellent and all agreed it was the best of the trip. After dinner, we went home and celebrated Shelby's birthday with a brownie with 20 candles on it. I think she had a good birthday.
