I have been looking forward to this day for so long! We made plans last year to visit Dry Tortugas National Park and fly there on a seaplane for the day. This was a big splurge for us, but would kill 2 birds with one stone. A visit to the only national park not accessible to cars, and a seaplane flight. There are also ferry trips to the island, but I decided to go big or go home! I was inspired by youtubers, Trish and Mark, after they did this. The bad thing is that the weather changed overnight, and the pilot deemed it would be too windy and unsafe to land out there, so our adventure was cancelled. Sad face for a little while, but you can't be guaranteed the trip will happen. So, just to let you know what we missed out on, I've included the video that got me fired up to go there in the first place! Also, Trish looks a lot better on that beach than I would! We'll just pretend this is the Bob and Pam show!
So, to keep us entertained, I put on my thinking cap and pulled a rabbit out of the hat! I signed us up for a food and history walking tour this afternoon! We went on the Southernmost Food Tasting & Cultural Walking Tour. Honestly, everything around here is the southernmost! Our guide was Chris, and because he is also a trained chef, he had a lot of background information about everything we sampled. I did think the price was sort of high, at first, but I hadn't realized that it included food stops that were actually more of a meal than I would have eaten otherwise! We had a group of only 8 and our tour lasted just over 3 hours. We went to places that we would have never wandered into on our own, through neighborhoods of multiple ethnicities. We ended up with a cup of Cuban coffee at the Cuban Coffee Queen, and I loved it! Espresso mixed with brown sugar, what's not to love!?
It was a hot and windy day, full of fun, and our lemonade ended up with a downpour as we were running back to the truck!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
Hi! I'm Pam! Join me on this journey through the next steps of life!
