Slice 2012 - 19 of 31 We saw Winter!


Dolphin Tale has been a favorite movie since it came to the theaters. I love movies based on true stories. My youngest has been on seewinter.com frequently to see Winter the dolphin live via webcam. Today we made a wish of hers come true. To see Winter in person. We drove an hour to Clearwater Marine Aquarium and embraced crowds to see the wonderful work this facility does. It's a small place. I've wondered all day if this new fame will help them make a bigger facility to continue their work with rescue, rehab, release. It's important work. Right now we are watching the movie, bought today, and recognizing where we were today. How fun and thank goodness for vacations.

  2. Sounds like you're having a great vacation. I could use one right about now, but ours isn't for two weeks. I need to cath up on my movies too. My first graders were talking about Winter, and I had no idea what they were talking about, until a little one explained it to me. The aquarium sounds like a great place to visit.

  4. Ok, we were really on the same wavelength because we watched the movie over break too. I'll have to tell the boys you saw Winter in person!
