Dolphin Jumping Out Of The Water

Blogs or Posts

Just for the record I did take a photo last year of a dolphin jumping out of the water.  He was pretty far away.

But he is a dolphin and he was  jumping.

And so having been liberated from the necessity of blogging photos taken in the winter of 2008-09 I present to  you. . .

Dolphin Jumping Out Of The Water.

I didn’t think it was possible for a day to be drearier and wetter and colder than yesterday but I was wrong.  Because today is all those things and more.


I think I remember someone saying that these dolphins  head south in the winter. Happy hunting where ever you go big guy!

And don’t ever stop trying to fly.

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
