Finally got photos from our Isla Mujeres Dolphin Discovery visit.  I couldn’t take my phone into the water so I pulled photos from their web site and the ones Sis bought from their cameras. They have huge open ocean tanks we got down into. There’s nothing like being kissed by a sea lion named Michelle. Fish breath! She ate a lot of fish. She was wicked smart. 

I also got smooched by a manatee named Sabrina! She is big but gentle. I got to feed her lettuce. They love lettuce! That’s all they do – eat lots of lettuce. They have interesting snouts.


Finally we swam with dolphins. Madonna and Picasso put on quite a show! I thought I’d like that part best, but the waves were a bit too much for me and the weather turned cold, so after I got to touch their fins (yes that’s me) and kiss a snout, I watched everyone else ride their backs standing up!
