The Mote Lab and Aquarium is awesome! They have marine life hospitals as well as research labs, all of which we couldn’t see but I’ve heard they are doing a lot for marine mammals and other sea life.
I’ve also included pics from our drive along Longboat Key where we saw a big dolphin in the ICW, as well as a few shots from our restaurant The Seafood Shack last night in Cortez. Yes, it has a slightly sunk vessel from 1870 at the dock!
That is quite the “House Boat” at the dock. Twin engines and all. The old two master looks well “used” ! Is that a Shark Fin or Dolphin? I say Shark, am I right? Lovely Pic’s. XOXO
