Nobody’s Email: Dolphins in Dubai
Nobody Gets Email:
Well, there is one thing they do very well in Dubai, besides drive very expensive cars, and that’s train dolphins. I couldn’t find the original video sent to me, but this is almost the same shots. These dolphins are just fantastic!
I have NO idea how they get these wonderful creatures to jump and do tricks, do you? Or what it must feel like to ride on the backs of dolphins..but they have been known to save people from shark attacks in the ocean and I can attest that this is true. It happened to me.
It was the first time I had gotten up on water skis. My father was driving the boat, heading out of the channel to the Gulf of Mexico, and a shark was following me, BUT…within a few minutes I had a whole pod of dolphins surrounding me, and when I couldn’t hold on any longer (and scared to death) I let go, and swam like the dickens to the boat. I was about 9. I was SURE I was going to be eaten. Rattle snakes I was used to, but shark?
I never got up on skies again, but I really do think those dolphins ran that shark off. At least that’s what my dad told me. This happened in the bay around Naples, Florida, which has all kinds of sharks, dolphins, rays, and other wonders of the seas…like the gentle Manatees, who when I was a kid, look like elephants in the water.
While I LOVE the trees of the Midwest and Eastern Seaboard, I DO miss the ocean. Especially the warm waters of the Gulf.
Anyway, enjoy…and have a wonderful Sunday!
