Swimming with Dolphins

To complete our nature tour we decided to swim with the dolphins.  Well, we decided to swim and a dolphin decided to swim with us.  We were on a little cove where the barrier island protected us from waves and cold water.  It was a perfect little spot with shallow water that was warm enough to just sit.  I plopped Little Man in the water and occasionally sat him back up when the ripples knocked him over and watched the kids play around on the boogie boards.

And then our friend who was camped out on the beach told us to look behind us.   There was a lone dolphin leaping out of the water.  We oohed and aahed and then chased after him.  He jumped close to a dozen times allowing us to see where he was and continue our chase.  The water was so shallow that I was able to walk pretty far.  When it got too deep the kids boarded their boogie boards and I pulled them.  Eventually our friend headed away too far too fast and we resorted to mere swimming.  Who ever forgets the day they swam with a dolphin?

    You are right!! No one forgets that. What an experience. We did it many, many years ago and it is still a favorite memory! You are giving them an unforgettable childhood. What a great Mom you are!
