I recently decided to write a series of posts about various adventures I’ve had in my life. The first post was about riding horses bareback in the ocean, which I did on my honeymoon with Mr. Jenners. Continuing on with our honeymoon adventures comes this post about swimming with dolphins.
As I mentioned previously, we honeymooned in Jamaica–Island of Lax Safety Standards. During our stay, we took a terrifying taxi ride to swim with dolphins. As we rode, it started to rain. I was worried that the weather would prevent us from swimming with the dolphins. After all, if this was in the U.S., it would have been canceled immediately. However, this was Jamaica–so swimming with dolphins in the rain was on!!! (However, when it started to thunder and lightning, we voluntarily removed ourselves from the water. I love dolphins and all, but I don’t want to end my life being cooked with them!)

One of the huge disadvantages of wearing glasses is that I couldn’t see good for the entire swim. However, as you can see, we got really up close and personal with these amazing animals. If you’ve never had the chance to do this (and I highly recommend that you do), they feel really smooth–almost like rubber or something. And they are really big … much bigger than you think when you are just watching them swim. It really was an amazing thing to do, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
By the way, we’re having some summer adventures of our own right now so I won’t be around the blogging world for a week or so.
Wondering if I can star in a remake of Flipper,
