PCB~Day 4

We left the camper Monday morning with no real plan on what to do that day. We decided to stop at the Buttonwood Marsh Overlook before we left the park.

Okay, the sign says 'Buttonbush' but the park map says 'Buttonwood'
You pick.

Then we headed to the marina. We stopped in one of the fish markets just to check it out. Cody immediately covered his nose and wanted out of the building. It really didn't smell that bad.

We decided to stop at the helicopter tour place. We talked to the owner for a while. We were about to leave when I asked him if we could look inside the helicopter. He was more than happy to let us check it out.

We left, with plans to return after we were finished golf carting around PCB.

So here's the thing. I've never flown. EVER. And I'm afraid of heights, so the thought of going up in a helicopter was pretty scary for me. But honestly, being afraid of it made me want to do it that much more. The only problem is that we couldn't all ride together. It's a four seater, and one of those seats had better have a pilot's hiney in it! So Bobby kept his feet on the ground so that the kids and I could experience our first flight.

Brit rode up front next to the pilot, Cody behind her and me behind the pilot.

Just before take off.

I tried not to take too many pictures. I wanted to actually see what was going on through my eyes and not through the camera. I'm bad about that:)
We absolutely LOVED it! It was beautiful and exciting and we can't wait to do it again.

After flying, we grabbed a bite to eat, and walked over to the beach,

and headed back to the camper, went to bed, got up in the morning, loaded everything up, hooked up the camper, and hit the road to head home. I'm still doing laundry.

We had the most amazing family vacation! It was full of new, exciting experiences and we had a blast!
