I shared Part 1 and Part 2 of our summer vacation last week. I promised to share our dolphin encounter with you. I finally got around to getting the pictures off the disk, so I'm ready to share!
On Sunday of our trip, we made reservations to swim with the dolphins and I'm using the term "swim" very loosely. :)
*Be prepared for picture overload!!
We got the party started with kayak rides around this little canal.
The dolphin instructor was also in a kayak and she was showing us what hand signals to do to make the dolphins perform little tricks.
Nixon and I were in a kayak too, but they wouldn't allow phones in the water area.
The picture is deceiving....in real life-they were REALLY nervous at this moment. haha!
Then we all got in the water on a little platform and waited to do some tricks with the dolphins. Tab was up first...
The pictures make it look super quick, but the instructor was so nice. She took her time with everyone.
Bowen was up and oh my word...
You guys!! His little eyes are closed! Holy sweetness!
He was up second and he was a champ! Seriously, he was all about that dolphin.
See what I mean? He was LOVING it!
This guy rocked his little encounter. :)
I think "the kiss" is an optical illusion on this one. #andidontblamehim #waitformykissingpic
Nixon did great, but he was definitely a little more reserved.
I wanted this to be MY picture. haha!
I told the instructor this one with Nix could count for me. She didn't buy it. :)
"Okay, that's close enough, dolphin"-doesn't that look like what he's thinking?
This cracks me up...clearly, Ebby Lee didn't get the "look at the photographer" memo.
She was a fan instantly.
On the kissing picture, the photographer kept WAITING for us to lock lips. ha! I finally told him that's the best I could do.
The dolphins showed off a little bit.
We were SUPER impressed! And then our little encounter was over. I thought it was WAY more fun than I was envisioning and longer too.
If you guys have the opportunity to do this sometime, I highly recommend it! The Slaughters give it five thumbs up! :)
Last call on vacation questions!! I'm answering them all on Thursday. Just leave a comment if you have any thing specific you'd like me to answer.
Have a GREAT day! XOXO
