Bucket List.....

While on vacation in Cuba I was able to cross another entry on my "bucket list".

Just a little bit of background information. I swim like a brick-----straight to the bottom, I am not comfortable when I am in any body of water where I cannot touch the bottom, I don't like water in my eyes especially salt water, and I don't like my hair to get wet and messed up, lol.

So what does this have to do with my bucket list-------I went swimming with dolphins.

The water was so deep I could not see the bottom let alone touch it, and didn't want to know how deep it was. Thank goodness for rules and regulations----I had to wear a life preserver, and it was secured tightly around my body. I got salt water in my eyes, my hair was soaking wet and messed up, but I had the time of my life.

The dolphins kissed me, I could stroke their bellies and noses, and they did tricks for us. I had a professional photo taken of me being kissed by two dolphins just to prove I did get in the water with them. They are such beautiful animals and so intelligent, I am so glad that I did it and I survived to tell you about it.

Not much sewing and quilting being done, however, I have to get in front of my machine and sew the block that is to be ready for our dinner meeting next week.

Oh, I do empathise with you about swimming. I am exactly the same and have come to the conclusion that it is not worth fighting it. HOWEVER, very many congratulations for taking the plunge, if you'll excuse the pun! I really take my hat off to you and think you have achieved something spectacular. You will have to frame that photo - do we get a glimpse?

Oh, how I empathise with you. I have given up trying to conquer the fear of being out of my depth and I really take my hat off to you for taking the plunge (if you'll pardon the pun!). Very well done and what memories you have. Good for you.
