This picture is of me and a friend with our dolphin friend “Mattie.” This is from a recent trip in the Orlando area of Florida. I’ve always loved the water and been amazed by the different personalities of individual dolphins. Not only were we able to interact with the dolphins, but we literally were able to ride the dolphins as well. It was amazing to be in such close proximity to these incredible creatures, and knowing that they are out in our oceans on a daily basis. It was an exhilarating experience, and I look forward to swimming again with the dolphins!
