Sara N. Dippity Dolphin Style
Ah, chance encounters ...
A short text message to my pal Captain Denny inquiring about a Cedar Key restaurant led to this magical dolphin interaction one day last week.
We (old roomie Dave and wife Tami) were driving out to have dinner at Cedar Key at a restaurant that Denny had recommended to me.
I texted, "Hey, where is the Pickled Pelican?"
Denny sent back the location and, " I'm at the boat basin. ETA?"
"See you then."
When we pulled up, Denny and his dogs were hanging out in his truck. His sleek, beautiful 24 foot Old Pro boat lay moored to the dock. He had been out test driving it.
"Ya wanna go for a boat ride before supper?"
And we did, of course.
I'll let the video do the talking on this post,...well most of it anyway, but how often do you head out for a dinner and then wind up taking an unexpected boat ride on an evening where the dolphins, a glass-slick sea, and a beautiful sunset come together in a perfect, magical marine mix.
The food was good too.
