Fun With a Dolphin

Wednesday was a beautiful day for boating.  





The water was calm and the clouds beautiful!

 All of a sudden I heard a loud splash, looked around to see
 a big smile from a dolphin. :)







That dolphin fun made our day on the water complete.


Yesterday evening we went to the Lighthouse Beach.  The wind was pretty strong and there were kite boarders who had been making good use of it.






The tide was out and water had been trapped in a long tidal pool.  I looked around in that for a while, there were some shells, but didn't find any that interested me.












There were a lot of small shells that the high tide had left behind.  I looked through those for a while, only sticking a couple of them in my pocket.  It was just pleasant spending time on the beach.

Dolphins are so playful and fun. What a nice ride you went on. The beach does look like a wonderful place to spend the day.

I absolutelly love dolphins. Love them love them love them! You got agreat video and some amazing still shots as well!! I will be landing on Sunday three weeks from today. Will make a pit stop at Walmart for some supplies and then to the causeway we will head! I get tears in my eyes every time I cross the causeway. I love Sanibel so much. Which is why I've looked at every post you do since I discovered you about three years ago. Would love to meet you in person while I'm there and thank you. I usually stay at Oceans Reach but this year we are trying out Pelicans Roost. I tra vel with my brother and my 4 year old niece. This will be the third annual trip for little Miss Kenna. I am sure that Sanibel will be as special to her heart as it is mine. Wow I've nearly written a book when mainly I wanted to say hi and thank you again!!!
