Vacation Part 2: The Dolphin Boogaloo

Day 2 of wet and raining beach vacation we decided to go for a little dolphin watch. And I prayed to the dolphin gods before we ever left for a sighting. Or even something that could pass as a sighting.
I got down on my knees and ensued in a series of clicks as a sacrifice to the dolphin gods. Cause if these little twerps didn't see a dolphin, there was gonna be some wailing and gnashing of teeth. And the ocean - even with all its fury - could not be prepared for such an onslaught of cries.
Twenty minutes into the adventure -- nothing. I am talking not even a turtle or something. And I began to look like this. (Please excuse the hair -- it was raining. And it is vaca.)Then ET screamed out DOLPHIN!And Lordy Be, I kid you not forty eleven of those little mammals encircled round us. And there was a MOMMA and her BABY! In which I was ooohing and ahhhing and lactating over. So I did not get a pic. So sorry.
But I went home that night and swore I would name my next born child Flipper -- as a thanks to the dolphin gods and all. Amen.

I love dolphins! I have two of them in my tatoo! ;) I would love to do one of those swim w/the dolphins thingies sometime. It would kind of freak me out, too! But it would be amazing and I would trust the dolphins. Orcas, not so much.
