We decided we wanted to go on a Dolphin tour on our vacation. I wasn't thrilled about forking over the money, but it was so worth it! I love it when we can give our kids experiences instead of things.
I wish I'd taken pictures of our captain. He was a very interesting charachter. He reminded me of Popeye without the spinach. Later on during our 2 hour tour he told us about the day he came face to face with a shark. It wasn't the shark's fault really. He was just trying to get a little snack when he was lurched up onto a boat. The shark didn't like the lack of air so he attacked Popeye. Mr. Shark took a bite out of Popeye's thigh and shoulder. Mr. Shark thought Popeye was so delicious that he ate one of his index fingers. But the worst part was that he shattered Popeye's left eyeball. Popeye then proudly said, "But I won because I ate the shark!"
Jason used to watch Robin Williams in Popeye over and over again. He almost wore out the rented VCR and video watching Robin sing and dance. Perhaps Robin was Jason's first man crush. Now that's a little unknown fact for the Jason fans out there! (you can thank me later Jason) In fact I have fond memories of Jason dancing and singing Shelly Duvall's performance as Olive Oil in the song "He needs Me." Good memories!
Anyway, I was on a boat with my family and Popeye. I love the wind blowing through the boy's hair!
Cameron really wanted me to take pictures of the Dolphins. I tried, really I did, but it's a little hard with a rocking boat and Dolphins that glide soundlessly to the surface.
We passed the most amazing lighthouse named the Lydia Ann Lighthouse. I have always been fascinated with lighthouses. I'm not sure why. Because this is the only actual lighthouse I've ever seen in person. HEB owns this lighthouse and they don't give tours. Bummer! Notice my Walmart bikini.
And that is the conclusion of our tour.
