(Picture taken by my husband on the sunset tour.)

My vacation is officially over. My youngest son had a wonderful time in the Bahamas. He arrived home tired but very happy at 1 am this morning.

My other son is still in Governor school. We saw him on Sunday and he too was having the time of his life. He still has two more weeks to go before he arrives home.

I am happy both my sons were lucky enough to be able to participate in such wonderful vacations.

While my sons were gone, hubby and i took full advantage of the "alone" time. On one of those days we went on a boat tour in the general area. We chose the sunset tour. I am so happy we did! I thought I would share a little bit of the tour we took. Hubby took so many neat pictures, i had to be choosy in which to share with you. I hope you enjoy the tour!

The first picture is of the work being done on the bridge that goes into the town. The bridge was built in the 1920s and has fulfilled its purpose. You can see the huge cranes that they are using to take the old bridge apart with.

After leaving the dock the tour guide took us to a place where he saw two eagles sitting earlier in the day! He was hoping they were still there. We got lucky!! We could not get close enough to get a great picture, but if you look there are two eagles sitting on a pole way out yonder! (You can click on each picture and the picture will get larger.) This is how our trip started out. Even though they were far, we could see them through binoculars. It was an exciting start to our trip.

The second part of our tour we went to see our local light house. We had a great view of it from the water.

The next part of our trip on water was an area toward the ocean. The sun was just starting to set, and all of a sudden we were surrounded by dolphins! The tour guide said this rarely happens! In fact most go on these tours and end up disappointed because dolphins are hard to find! I would say more then 20 dolphins total were around us. They were everywhere we looked! Hubby tried to take lots of pictures, however dolphins are fast! So he kept getting the ripple where they dived under the water. lol. He was able though to get several pictures.

The sun was rapidly going down, yet we all were so enthralled in watching the dolphins none of us wanted to leave, isn't God just wonderful? There is nothing more beautiful then Gods very own wonderful creations in my opinion!

We finally decided to leave before it got to dark.

WE had to say bye to the dolphins... :( How exciting though and special they made our trip.

Last but not least on our way back to the dock we were able to see this beautiful tugboat. I made hubby snap a picture of it I thought it was so pretty.

Mike :) I just knew you would love the light house picture. :) It is a wonderful light house, although it is in need of a new coat of paint. Although that is what makes it so quaint maybe because it has an aged look to it. I hope you have a blessed evening! Hugsssss sent your way.

What a wonderful vacation you had! And these pictures are just spectacular!

Dolphins are neat! And remember you had a wish about them? Someday, perhaps you will get a chance to swim with them. How neat that your boat was surrounded by them!:)

I'm so glad you had a good time. Thank you for sharing. Ttys!
