It seems like just swimming with captive dolphins defeats the purpose of ‘getting to know them’. I’ve heard of some people that just kind of ‘accidentally’ hang out with dolphins while surfing or boogie boarding. I’ve boogie boarded withs rays before and that was really cool, just sharing a wave for a while with the animals on their turf (or surf,as the case may be!)
I probably wont drop $150.00 an hour to swim with captives, but i might do some research before heading to the coast to find beaches that have some history of ‘wild’ dolphins interacting with people. THAT would be so cool!
I thought it would be cool to learn how to do it, so I documented the process on a web page:
Everyoneâ€™s feet are different, but this way of doing it get you a pair of truly custom fitted shoes. We had so much fun making these, and they fit and look great!
next I’ll try to make some Irish Gillies
I made ‘short mead’ (meaning a mead that’s meant to be consumed quickly rather than aged for months or years) for a medieval event I went to earlier this month. It was a very sweet, with cinnimon and cloves. There were 4 wine making/brewing competitions there, 3 of which I entered.
It took 1st of about 15 bottles including a 5 year old sherry in one competition, best mead of 7 and best overall of about 20 bottles in another competition, and 3rd of ??? bottles in another.
I was also able to prove through extensive research that mead, when drunk without any other beverages does NOT cause hangovers! Valuable information, indeed! :)
