I recently went to Sea World for the first time. I’m a fan of animals of all sorts, but when it comes to sea creatures, dolphins always seem top my list. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m from Florida and used to go to the Gulfarium on school trips and dream of my eventual stardom as a dolphin trainer, or just because they’re absolutely incredible and beautiful creatures. Whatever the case…I always enjoy a good dolphin sighting, whether it’s in the confines of an ocean-themed park or out in the open seas.
I think one of my favorite parts of my Sea World experience was that, just shortly after I took this photo and moved to the opposite side of the dolphin area, a rambunctious dolphin came swimming by the crowd that was so hastily leaning over to “pet” them and slapped a wall of water into their startled faces. It was hilarious…mostly because I managed to escape the soaking wave and watch from a safe and dry distance.
