I will just continue where I left off yesterday......
Wednesday we had scheduled a dolphin swim experience (through this company, which I would definitely recommend). Two other families in our group were scheduled for the same time. We all set off to create some lasting memories. As we waited for our opportunity to interact and swim with the dolphins, the kids were able to hold a monkey (Smiley wasn't so sure about it, so she opted out):
Finally, our wait was over. After some brief instructions as a large group, we were separated by families with our respective dolphin and trainer. We got in the water with the dolphin (ours was a male) where we were able to learn about him, "pet" him, dance with him, get and give a kiss, get him to "sing", do a few tricks (act like a shark, wave, have a water fight, blow bubbles) and ultimately we were given a ride by this amazing creature. For me, this was a highlight of our trip, something I have always wanted to do that I can now cross off the bucket list.
After our dolphin experience, we were able to pick and purchase some pictures and a short video of our time with the dolphin. While we were waiting for those to print, the kids were once again able to hold another animal, this time a parrot.
We headed back to the resort and the rest of the day was spent relaxing by the pool.
Come back tomorrow for the final chapter......
