Why in the world did I mention dolphins in yesterday's post? Well, my daughter's a bit of an animal fan, and is studying in a marine biology high school. Last year, we visited the Dolphin Academy at the Curacao Sea Aquarium. The family has done a couple of other programs before, and I've simply never experienced anything like this. There are plenty of dolphin touch-and-swim programs to choose from, but the Dolphins In-Depth course is really stupendous. Taught by head trainer George Kieffer, it's five 4-hour days of intense and intimate learning, including about 50% classroom and 50% in the water with the dolphins. I have a couple of pretty cool pictures...let me know if you want to see them.
