More Dolphin Photos!



No freebie today, I have a couple of pages in the works but none quite finished. I just have way too much going on trying to catch up! I should have something for you tomorrow. In the mean time, I thought I would share a couple more of the dolphin photos.
The first pic is of my dolphin dance. He swims up, you take his fins in your hands and tango away! Next photo is when we learned hand signals. I had my dolphins singing to beat the band! They just kept singing and singing and then they started to twirl around! This was just one of the most amazing experiences of my life. If I can ever figure out how to add video to the blog you will have to see the "foot push". You lay down in the water in the "Superman" position, two dolphins come up behind, stick their noses in the arches of your feet and take off! Keep in mind that they can swim up to thirty miles an hour. They push you halfway out of the water! A little piece of friendly advice, if you decide to do the foot push, be sure to wear a one piece swimsuit. I learned this the hard way! ROTFLPIMP!!! They neglect to mention that itty bitty fact in the brochures! At least I wasn't the only moonie in our group, out of six people, three lost their drawers to the dolphins!

So, the aquatic meaning of Vicki is "She who dances with naughty dolphins?" ;) "Come get depantsed!" is probably not good brochure material either!

Love the photos! Looks like fn!

OMG! I've been with the dolphins twice but have never done the foot push - it sounds awfully exciting - probably too much for me!! LOL You look so happy in your photos - so glad you had the wonderful experience! MaggieMae aka Julie

Great pictures! I'm very jealous. That is a dream of mine... to swim with the dolphins. Now that I live in FL, maybe I can do the dolphin encounter at SeaWorld... one day.... I'll just keep dreaming! I'm glad you had such a GREAT time with the dolphins. A lifetime of memories, I'm sure!

Hello! I came upon your blog via Susie's. Swimming with Dolphins is one of the top things on my bucket list. Living in FL, you would think that I woulld have done it by now! We watched others swim with the dolphins on a cruise stop in Cozumel and I practically cried!

I also grabbed your Cancun Dreams set while here. Lovely. I need to come bac when I have more time to explore. Thanks for your generosity!

Amazing photos! I've lost important items of apparel when making dives off the 10 foot board at the pool. YIKES! Thanks for sharing your LO.
