Have a playful spirit

Monday 4th July

Yesterday evening when we went out for a stroll, we were hoping to see the pod of dolphins that have regularly been seen swimming across the surfing beach just down the hill from where we live.
We did see them, jumping and splashing out of the sea, but they were quite a long way off shore, and my phone couldn’t really capture any good photographs of them.
These images below, were taken the previous evening, and I think are absolutely outstanding.
Right place, right time, right camera.

I’m sure you would have loved to watch these animals, playfully jumping through the waves with the surfers.
You did have a wonderful time with these gentle creatures back in 2008, in the Florida Keys, hesitant at first, but ending up with a large smile, having swum across the lagoon, holding onto to Kibbies’ fin.

My sweetheart dolphin Angel

Swim my Angel, far and wide
Through the surf you glide
Wish you were by my side
But in my heart you reside.

Love you forever
Always have, always will.

  1. I enjoy your daily posts. They touch my heart. I don’t know why this one reaches so much deeper, but I’m weeping as I laugh to myself. I can imagine the joy of interacting with those remarkable animals. Perhaps tying the past and the present. Thank you for keeping your love alive in such a poignant manner. Bless you.

  2. I also find comfort in your posts, this is a particularly lovely one. There is a poignant line in the movie, P.S. I Love You, where one broken-hearted person says to another that loss is a very lonely thing, but if we are all alone, then we are all together in that too. You remind me of that. God bless you. x
