Texture Tuesday . . . dream edition

The epitome of beauty
and of grace
in the water,
curiously they gaze back,
playfully as if to invite.
Sounds that are melodic
echo in the air,
harmonic like a symphony,
spontaneous and free.
The super surfer
a soul of the sea,
deeply spiritual
and one of the most endearing
creatures of the Earth,
your voice calls to me.

- Kim

My in-laws were visiting for a long weekend and we took them on a Baywatch Dolphin Cruise off of Pier 21 in Galveston (there are no propellers as it's a jet drive boat and safe for the dolphins). It couldn't have been a more perfect day, not only weather wise, but for siting dolphins. You could hear them before you could see them, and see them we did! This is by far not only the most I have ever seen, but they were so playful, and as you can see at one point getting right next to the boat.  I don't care how many times I see this incredible creature, it always feels just as magical as the first time....and all for only $10!

I dream of one day being able to swim with this amazing animal!!

Love, Kim

There's something about dolphins that make me smile inside and warm the soul. You must have been so excited on the trip, I know I would have been. Great pics, you've made my evening.

Brenda said...

Gorgeous captures of amazing creatures! My step-daughter swam with the dolphins during a trip we made to the Florida Keys - I'm sure she considers that experience a highlight of her life.

Jeanne said...

These are so fascinating. We did get to swim with some of them on one of the cruises that we did a few years ago. very interesting.

Nicki said...

Excellent captures and choice of processing. Thanks for sharing with us landlocked folks.

Oh that looks like such a fun place to visit. I love dolphins. I have been with them out in the ocean and they are soooooo much bigger when you are in the water with them :)

Wow, so beautiful!! Your poem is as lovely as your images..."souls of the sea" is a perfect description. My daughter loves dolphins more than anything and she would be in heaven if she took this dolphin cruise!! Thanks so much for sharing, Kim. :)

Upon my husband's retirement we took a cruise to Bermuda, there we took a trip to a Dolphin Research Center where I was able to swim with them! It was the trill of a lifetime. As a bonus they let a group of women swim in a nearby pool where we sat in the water and were able to observe mommy dolphins and their new babies! Strict restrictions not to touch though! So glad you were get these great photos! I have a Groupon deal for about the same amount of money here in Florida.
Love your words as well! Great post!
