I have to brag about my experience yesterday. It was so awesome! You know one of those experiences you have in nature where you feel the universe is giving you a gift as a way to say, 'you're doing the right things.' Well, this was one of those.
I went surfing with my husband and it was all mellow and perfect out-- the water was green, clear, and cool and it was so, so sunny. He points off in the distance to a pod of 3 dolphins swimming toward us, and so I carefully paddled out to meet them. It was like I just KNEW they weren't going to swim farther away to avoid me, and they didn't. I got out to where they were and they were just swimming right at me. I could hear their blowholes as they were breathing. It was like they were half- breathing, half- sighing, as if there was a bit of effort to their long swim. But they were going quite slow and mellow, just all staying together. I could see their fins and skins a little knicked up, and they were huge-- they must've all been quite old. And they swam RIGHT UNDER ME! I was kind of looking around, like, 'what are they doing under there?' And then I heard their breath again, and they came up right on the other side of me. I was in heaven, just staring after them. I look over to my husband and smiled, and he pointed out again, 'There's more.' And sure enough, 3 more! But these ones seemed like they were trying to avoid me a bit more. They had a different vibe, so funny; just like how different groups of people hang out together. These were kind of the snobs.
Anyone have any experiences like this from where you live?
