~Thursday, Re-Creation....Delightful Dolphins & Dessert Lady

Even though beach time didn't work out on Sunday, I had this adventure planned for mid-week, Discovery Cove. The plants are so spectacular. Don't you love how they have the walkways leading to the water areas planted?
Simply beautiful.
The lazy river is quite long and you swim most of the way. With a floaty thing, it's not that hard and you do have areas where it is not as deep. It works up a good appetite for the nice meals they offer as part of the admission. Kind of like cruise food.

It is way too easy to take all of this for granted in your backyard. It isn't until I hear all of the accents and listen to how much it cost others to come here that I really appreciate it. This is such a wonderful place to relax. We got annual passes to Sea World so we can come back to Discovery Cove at a discount for the next year. Yipeeeeee, sounds good to me.

We spent quite a bit of time just watching the dolphins and their interaction time with the humans who come to be with them. Funny, no other animals pay to spend time with humans do they? :)
I've done this twice and it was an amazing experience to touch these magnificent creatures. Oh yeah, we get a kiss, too!

So after spending hours and hours swimming, snorkeling and beaching, all I could think of was the fact that I had ordered chocolate cake at several places lately and none were really great. Somehow I came to my senses and instead of going to the "Dessert Lady" and eating 5 portions of different cakes, we went to one of the health food stores and got the best chocolate cake, by Just Desserts. It was worth every single calorie and bite of fat! After working all morning doing more gardening, it was easy to rationalize it anyway.

I think Saturday will be a great day to go visit Renninger's Antique Market. I wonder what we will find this time.


  1. It sounds like a great way to spend a day! Up here in the north it's starting to really feel like fall. In a short time I will be longing for warm weather again & dreaming of places like Discovery Cove! Some day I hope I'll visit .

  2. I love how the walkway is planted and it sounds like you had a great time!


  3. What a wonderful time...we were last in Sea World before they had all of this. I would love to return now...and get a kiss from a dolphin! Sea World Florida was where I first got to pet a dolphin and I loved it! I was so excited!

    I am so glad you had such fun!


  4. Sounds like a wonderful time and a great dessert.

    O good, your going to Renniger's..looking forward to photos!


  5. Gosh Donna it seems like just yesterday that you were swimming with the dolphins - I'm SO happy that you got to visit and play with them again.. truly a special and treasured blessing.
