Another opportunity to swim with wild dolphins, this time I got to go on as crew.
It’s pretty amazing to be able to swim with wild dolphins. It didn’t get off to a great start but in the end, we saw a lot. I got in one particular awesome jump.
At one point, we got so close to them, it was pretty incredible.
Coming straight for me:
A cool shot as they swam underneath me:
These dolphins were particularly playful and stuck around for a while.
There were about 5-7 dolphins in this shot:
And on a separate jump, we saw a mother and a baby dolphin, but they didn’t stick around to play.
Seeing dolphins from the boat:
You’re in for a treat. So normally, I would write a swim race report, but this time I have a real video for your viewing pleasure.
Last Saturday, I did a 10km swim race. In a pool. 20 laps of a 500m pool. Same race that I did 2 years. You might recall the <a href=”http://memoirsofaleisha.blog.com/2014/07/01/my-first-10km-swim-race-oiso-10km-swim-race/”>race report.</a>
The only difference since is that I’ve gotten older and slower. I managed a time that was about 40min slower than last time. Ugh.
The housemate finished before me so was able to get some footage of me. Mind you, the footage was taken at around the 8km and 9km mark, so I was literally ready to die. Body really struggled and it wasn’t pretty. But don’t take my word for it.
