On Monday I shared part one of our vacation to Orange Beach. With 34 photos included in it, it was a pretty lengthy post. I was so surprised when y’all read it regardless and left the sweetest comments. Thank you so much. I honestly thought nobody would want to see our vacation recaps, but the memories are too special not to blog about. I feel much better about posting these now and I hope that you aren’t too sick of them by the end. Let’s start off where I stopped.
Day 3 started just like every other morning, taking a sunrise stroll on the beach with Marissa. We stayed on the beach from about 6:00 until about 7:30 every day. After our walks or sitting and staring at the ocean we would head back to the condo for breakfast. This particular day we had orange rolls.
The rest of the morning/ afternoon was spent splashing and playing in the waves before having a late lunch.
Our afternoon highlight was taking a dolphin cruise. Totally a touristy thing to do but we were tourists and we didn’t want to miss a thing! Besides thanks to Whistle, Click, and the Wild Kratts my girls were already completely obsessed.
There were SO many dolphin cruises to choose from it was almost overwhelming. But in the end I feel confident that we chose the very best one. Our captain and his deck hand were so knowledgeable and friendly. It was also a smaller boat than some which resulted in lots of one on one attention.
You always kind of wonder how these things work and if you will actually see dolphins. We saw SO many dolphins! It was awesome and one of our favorite parts of the whole trip.
We also saw a blue crab that Emily was brave enough to pet. I captured a gem of a photo of Marissa when she was feeling totally over the heat waiting on the boat to take off. Then a random stranger offered to take a family photo for us.
When the dolphin watching adventures were over it was time for the fun. After all, it was the Dolphin Fun Cruise.
The girls had a blast getting in a water fight with the captain and any other willing soul. I however opted to stand behind this door. The girls still thought it was fun to spray at me.
After the cruise we headed back to the condo for some relaxation and dinner.
Around sunset we decided to go to a nearby park. Just like everything else, the park was beautiful. They ran and explored begging us to stay all night. We finally headed home to tuck the girls into bed and once again talk until the late hours of night on the balcony.
I’d love to squeeze another day into this post, but since I took record-setting amounts of photos on days 3 & 4 they each earned their own day. Next time I’ll share my photos from Fort Morgan, then I’ll do one more post to quickly wrap up the rest of our trip.Recapping vacation day #3 in today's post. #sunrise, #dolphins and #adventure. #OrangeBeach Click To Tweet
