Adventures in Paradise Dolphin Cruise Sanibel Island Florida

We had a truly amazing experience on our Adventures in Paradise Dolphin Cruise Sanibel Island Florida! Captain Glenn and our naturalist Melissa were so knowledgeable about the area.

Adventures in Paradise Dolphin Cruise Manatee

Want to know one of the best parts of our adventure……We saw a manatee before we even left the dock. We arrived a few minutes early and were walking towards the boat. Captain Glenn waived us over and told us there was a manatee in the water near the dock and to keep an eye out.  As I walked along the dock the manatee came up right next to me. It was so cool to see these gentle giants right next to us.

After starting off the cruise on such a high note I wondered if it would go down hill from there. I am sooooo happy to say that it just kept getting better and better.

Delicious Grilled Peaches with cinnamon sugar butter

Yum! Yum! Yum!

These Grilled Peaches with cinnamon sugar butter are deeeelicious!

So easy to make and perfect for end of summer barbecues. We stocked up on peaches after visiting the Greenbluff farms north of Spokane. We brought home so many peaches. It is a good thing my parents came over to visit because I had way to many peaches in the house.

My Mom ended up taking about a half a box back to Seattle with her. I ran out of time to make all of the recipes I was hoping to make. I figured if I tried to make all of the recipes we would be swimming in peach pie, peach cobbler and everything else for a while.

These grilled peaches are soooo good. I am not sure why I have held off on grilling peaches for so long. They are perfect with vanilla ice cream or with the cinnamon sugar butter.
