I had a memory come up on my Facebook page this morning. It is from four years ago when I worked at the port. I had forgotten all about this experience until I read it again this morning. I do not think I shared this on this blog in the past, so I am going to share today.
I had a unique experience today. I was at work today and I had to go to the port to move some things around and so I took an ATV there. On the weekends when there is no cruise ship in town the port is practically deserted. Well I was there all by myself and I remembered someone asked me what they did with the dolphins when the port was not open, and did they keep them all penned up or take them somewhere else. Well I decided to check it out for myself today when no one was around. I snuck over to the “Swim with Dolphins” pool to see if I could see anything. Well I walked up to the lagoon type pool that they have here for the dolphins and leaned over and before I knew it 2 dolphins jumped up and came to the side and let me hang over the side of the pool and pet them, I don’t think I was supposed to but I did anyway, and then 2 more dolphins came over and wanted me to pet them. I hung around for a couple of minutes and watched them jump around and play just for my benefit, and damn I did not have a camera. I was all alone and so were they and they seemed like they wanted me to stay and hang out with them. I swear they are smart and almost seem like they knew what I was thinking. It was great being alone and having a once in a lifetime experience with some of the natures most precious creatures.
