@omid: It was a lovely moment. I ran back to find my camera and was happy that the Dolphins stayed around for so long so I could take a shot.

@franz: Very surprising encounter. A mother and her pup played amongst the swimmers for about two hours. I have swum here every summer for years and years and never seen such friendly, fearless dolphins like this before.

I like the rock that looks like a turtle. I also love seeing the close encounter with the precious dolphins
