I love SeaWorld! FYI The St. Louis Zoo has an incredible exhibit in the summer where you can touch stingrays and SHARKS! It was quite and experience.
BTW Found you through Katie Pinke. Glad to link up this week. Looking forward to reading more from you!

Wow, we were there almost at the same time. The dolphins were a highlight of our trip too. Feeding and touching dolphins at SeaWorld and meeting “Winter” from “Dolphin’s Tale” at the Clearwater Beach Marina is something we’re all still talking about. Poor Mickey…

What an experience! We’ve never touched one, but my son has played ball with one at Sea World.

That is definitely a great opportunity. What a great shot. After reading Kathy’s comment I went back and looked again. Yep, looks like that dolphin is really grinning. Cute

They are not slimy, but kind of wet and hard. We also touched stingrays, and they are definitely slimy.

I love dolphins! I remember years ago, we went through St. Augustine and there was a place (I can’t remember the name) and we were walking around and there was no one around and there was this dolphin in a pool all by himself. He had a pool ball and he literally nosed it up in the air to us and we played catch with him for a while. That was so neat! :)

Dagmar January 10, 2012 at 11:19 PM

Wow, that sounds amazing. They are definitely interested in attention, as we learned. I’ve been to St. Augustine 20 years ago, thanks for reminding me :)
