Yes, indeed, here is the dolphin photograph we’ve all anticipated! I’m sorry that it’s not jumping out of the water. I’m sorry it doesn’t look like Flipper. We tried. We truly tried to lure it skyward. We requested jumps and twists and dolphin babies.
We got a fin. Isn’t it a lovely fin? 🙂
We also saw a stingray. Isn’t it a fine stingray? The first time I fished in Florida–years ago–I caught a stingray. I thought it was a gift from the heavens. (No one else in the Universe would think that it was a gift from the heavens.) We threw it back in the bay.
I am still enamoured by reflections in the water. That’s an understatement, isn’t it? I am enamoured by all reflections. They tell magnificent patterned stories.
We boated to Big Hickory for lunch yesterday. Tim steered the boat out into the Gulf of Mexico. The water was so calm. What do you think of that strange little sailboat? I like how the water looks like a sea of stars. We were boating on a sea of stars.
I also meant to show you the photo of my mom and brother captured through a sand castle window. Such a unique view, yes? I think we’re living a fairytale this week. Which is good, because not all weeks are fairy tales. Last night my sister-in-law, Michele, and I laughed so hard that we cried. The rest of the family looked at us as if we were crazy. So we laughed some more!
(And who knows why we giggled so hysterically? Whatever set us off wasn’t even that funny–at least according to witnessing family members. We did get my brother chuckling, too, though.)
In an hour we drive to Tim and Michele’s place for a glass of wine before our final dinner out. I am leaving tomorrow. Time to return to–are your ready for this?–snow. Yes, snow. Barry said the word “Snow” is mentioned almost every day in the ten-day forecast.
No dolphins in the Upper Peninsula!
See you soon…in snow country…
