A Perfect Farewell To Florida



Our recent family outing in Tarpon Springs was nothing short of magical – a crescendo to our Florida adventures. As our official farewell to the Sunshine State, the day unfolded with a dolphin cruise, a visit to the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary, and a feast of authentic Greek delights.


Logan's eyes lit up with pure joy as we embarked on the Sponge-O-Rama Dolphin Cruise. Two hours of cruising through azure waters, hunting for dolphins, and exploring a sandbar for seashells made it an unforgettable experience. Despite the occasional blare of loud music, Logan, a trooper on the high seas, plugged his ears and embraced the adventure with enthusiasm.


The accessibility of the boat made it inclusive for all. Even with my scooter, I could have hopped off to join the seashell search, but I opted to stay aboard, savoring every moment of the scenic cruise. The loofahs and goat's milk soap we acquired – locally harvested treasures – became tangible reminders of a day well spent.

Tarpon Springs, with its charming shops lining the water, evoked a sense of nostalgia. The memories of visits with Nana and Papa flooded back, making the experience even more special as I introduced my son to the traditions of our past. It's a place that holds a piece of our hearts, becoming one of our favorite spots to unwind and create lasting memories.


The adventure took an unexpected turn with the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary, a haven for exotic animals. Beyond the primates, Logan found delight in miniature cows, alligators, and a giant turtle. A Groupon deal led us to this unique sanctuary, offering a glimpse into the retirement home for animals transitioning from circuses or facing health challenges.



We'd like to share some snapshots of our day, capturing the joy, the laughter, and the beauty of Tarpon Springs. Swipe through and join us in reliving these precious moments. 📸✨

From dolphin leaps to primate antics, our Tarpon Springs adventure encapsulated the essence of family, fun, and exploration. As we bid farewell to Florida, we carry with us the warmth of the sun, the laughter of the dolphins, and the cherished memories etched in every corner of this quaint town. Until next time, Tarpon Springs – you will always have a special place in our hearts. 💙
