Just kidding. Professional divers have already gotten them for you! You can walk down the sidewalks and there are tons of different types of sponges to choose from! It’s crazy to think that they come from the ocean!

While you’re there you can walk along the docks and watch the pelicans! If you’re lucky you might even see some manatees!

Jackson got an enormous eclair and I got a….. drum roll please….. baklava cheesecake. Are you salivating yet? Maybe a picture would help!

Doesn’t that look yummy?! It totally was. We highly suggest Hella’s! And after you’re done stuffing your face with Greek food, take a walk by the water to work it off!
