Swimmingly Awesome!


Year 2005. One of my favorite animal memories. Hubby and I were in the Bahamas and were able to swim, and I mean swim with the dolphins at the Blue Lagoon! I grinned like the Cheshire cat the whole time.

We danced with them, kissed them, and no they don't taste fishy-just watery. :) Rubbed their bellies and back.
See all our smiles? It was splashes of fun, which of course the dolphin did.

The most amazing part, which you HAVE to take my word for, was when we floated on our stomachs with legs locked straight and feet flexed. Then two dolphins swam up behind us and pushed us up out of the water with their noses on our feet, just like Sea World stuff! No sadly, I don't have a picture as they only took videos. (But hey, come over and I'll show you.)  

Just the most unbelievable experience. I can't explain it in words. You just have to try it yourself.

Trust me.
Then we ended with this finale.

Wonderful, wonderful.

"Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see-how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him." Psalms 34:8

This I know is true. Trust me, or rather Him. Wonderful, wonderful.
