Dolphin

I showed monkeys yesterday, so let's take a look at another mammal common to our area, dolphins.  The Pacific near Tamarindo is teeming with dolphins.  The ocean off our shore is part of a National Marine Park, primarily to protect sea turtles.

Fishing boats are a popular activity for tourists, and the boats will be greeted by dolphins such as this one, leading the way.

This week we are showing more photos of Julie's recent rafting trip through the Grand Canyon on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site it.  I have never made the trip, and if you also have not had he opportunity, I think you will enjoy these photos of a unique part of the earth.

Dolphins are so beautiful and so appealing. They have such great personalities and few of us can resist them.

Such a gentle animal. We have quite a few in the Gulf too and you can sometimes watch them while sitting on the beach.

They're one of my favorite critters! Nice shot, Dave!

I agree with Kate. There just seems to be a special bond between dolphins and humans.
