Swim with the dolphins

Wow, so yeah... swam with dolphins this morning. You strap on a snorkle and goggles, some fins and wetsuit, and swim around with your head looking down so you can see them swim under you, around you, coming so close you could just reach out and touch them if you wanted. I didn't touch any though. I'm guessing there were about 50-100 dolphins swimming around. Often there 200 so I'm told. Pretty incredible.

In my glee I kept gulping salt water trying to dive and forgetting to take a deep breath before going fins up and so yeah, wasn't quite inept at the snorkle thing and ended up dry heaving by the end of the morning from taking on so much salt water. We had about 5 separate chances to swim with them. The boat would pull up near the dolphins and then we'd all jump in. You had to move quick because the window of opportunity to see them was often short. All in all it was pretty amazing and saw and swam with a good many.

Jason, Wow is right. Amazing photographs of the Dolphins. They are so beautiful. And the mountains. Well my dear you look like you are having a blast. Mom is happy you finally got to swim with the Dolphins and she points out rather sadly that your trip is half over. Time always goes so quickly, especially when you are having fun. We will miss being able to check in with you daily. Anyways Paulo took Mom and I to the symphony for two operettas. The Nightingale and Oedipus Rex composed by Stravinsky. The later was really superb. We then were out past midnight eating crepes and ice cream!!! That's how I party!! The night before we celebrated Dulci's B-day with Nikolai, Jocelyne, Lily, Lana, Toshh, and Nick. That was alot of fun. We came back to our house for Champainge and cake. Nothing like a little time with old friends. Mom goes home tommorrow, in some ways it was enough time but I barely feel like I got to do anything with her in the city. Well today we might pick up a Christmas tree, go for a walk, go shopping down town and generally spoil ourselves with good food out, and then my co-workers are having a Christmas party!! Yeah. Well Mom and I are making a yummy lasagne for the party, we'll savour a bite for you both. And Mom wants to know where you'll be for her B-day so that she can think of you, maybe you can surprise her with a phone call. We'll check in a little later on, love you some much and keep on. Love CPR and pregnant woman.
