There is a magic to wandering…the secret is in just two small words.

The story of my seashell necklace is a tale of the generosity, and kindness, in this charming, greek, community. This is such a sweet, seaside, “village” feeling town. I wandered in a charming gift shop called “Cute as a Button Boutique” the manager welcomed me with this seashell necklace, and walked me around this neat little store, showing me their unique collection of sea coral. Even an amazing blue coral. Wander somewhere new….it will breathe life back into your exsistence.
Loved this amazing little hand made soap shop in Tarpon Springs. A super groovey place to buy some yummy scented soaps. The shop claims to make the soap the way it has been made for thousands of years. They describe the process of using herbs and oils from all over the world. Then hand mixing them magically,then pouring into molds, and covering the soap with a blanket for 6 weeks. This is an aromatic experience you don’t want to miss in this lively little town.My favorite was Rose and Tangerine.
I love to slow down and take time to really enjoy the seaside when I visit there. Trips can feel rushed….and I miss being in touch with the beauties of mother nature. Being still by the sea is a great form of calming the mind and bringing peace to the soul. If you are by the sea….you must become part of the sea to feel it’s healing power.
I had a fabulous week spending some time in this little part of the world.There is so much life and passion, the sponge divers have such an amazing local trade, and the bakeries will not disappoint. My only warning there is, if you’re sharing your greek canoli with someone else…you will be fighting over the fork. I had such great experiences with shop owners, and restaurants, I can’t wait to share the whole story on my blog. Tarpon Springs the whole adventure on it’s way! Where will you wander dear reader?
So excited for tomorrow. I’m going on The Dolphin Cruise plus Beach Excursion, in the Gulf town of Tarpon Springs . I hope to see some dolphins tomorrow. I get to diembark on Anclote Island and search for seashells. Shelling is always a relaxing challenge I love to take. The opportunity is fabulous to get up close and personal with Florida wildlife. They even allow swimming off the island. This is one occassion not to forget a camera. More adventures from Tarpon Spring’s on the way!
One of my favorite parts of visiting the Gulf of Mexico towns, are these amazing creatures. I just stopped and watches a pelican, flap his enormous wings through the air, over the shimmering water, and soared down into a graceful landing, to glide upon the water near the sponge dock, where I was standing. You have to really experience an up close, and personal encounter, to feel you have been truly, and formally introduced and amazed by this enormous bird.
