Look Out Flipper Here I Come

As you can see on the right hand side of this post is my count down clock to when I go to swim with dolphins (no, not — as Geri thinks — the Miami Dolphis).

I have wanted to swim with dolphins for a long time. Not sure where the desire started — perhaps when I read “Island of the Blue Dolphins,” or watched “Flipper“, but I am now going to do it.

And I don’t want to swim with dolphins that have been captured and put into tanks for us to swim around with — that is like fishing in a stream that is stocked. I want to swim where dolphins just hang out. I found a place that does just that. For five days you go out on their sailboat and look for pods of dolphins and then get into the water. Sometimes they swim with you, sometimes they don’t — but it’s their decision. I like that.

You can read more about it on their website. Check out the videos too.

So I’m at 199 days and counting.
