Swimming with Dolphins

We woke up this morning to puddles of water and continuous rain. It was easily the worst morning we’ve had here. We went to breakfast as normal and looked at each other wondering how we were going to spend our day. Mom and dad have been talking to us about taking some type of tour around the island. They had mentioned a snorkeling tour, swimming with the dolphins, etc. We decided to catch a ferry boat to Blue Lagoon Island to a place called Dolphin Encounter. After having the worst morning so far, we had the best afternoon so far. After arriving at the island Angie, Jake and I were able to play with the dolphins, hugging them, kissing them and dancing with them. It was amazing. Mom and dad took pictures of us. I am attaching a few of them right now. The pictures do not do it justice. If you have never had the opportunity to swim with dolphins, you are missing out.

When we returned to the resort for the evening we sat down to a great Italian dinner and then called it a night. We are all pretty beat from an exciting, yet exhausting, day in the water. This vacation has been exactly what we needed to start 2008 strong and revived.

Tomorrow we hope to take a taxi across the bridge from Paradise Island into the town. Mom has been wanting to get over there and do some shopping. I hope we get good weather for our journey through the streets.

We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas yesterday.

How great is that! Wish you nothing but the best and sunniest. I'm looking at the white frosting here and hoisting a cup of coffee to you and your fam.
