Shark's in the water and Mom's on the beach!

Looks like a shark, but these are really dolphins!!

I got a chance to go down and see my Mom in Sarasota after the Crabapple show, and while I was taking my early morning run down the beach, I was thrilled to see the dolphins playing very close to shore!!
I've never seen them so close and shallow! By the time I got back and into the water they were farther out, but it reminded me of the times when we would swim in the cove off the marina in the evening when the dolphins were there. (We were always told that there would not be sharks around if there were dolphins).

This is amazingly just a dozen yards off the beach. I will never get tired of seeing the dolphins, and always look for them when I am there. (I REALLY want to be a mermaid when I grow up and hang out with these guys all day!!)

I love these pictures of my Mom on the beach------she certainly appears to be the center of attention....and her hat is so cool!! (miss you already Ma)

OMG, I think we are on the same let's visit mom schedule! I was just in Fl too! Was that Siesta Key? I don't jog, just walk along the beach and absolutely love to see the dolphins too. Do you get giddy like a child watching them. Hope you had a great visit with your mom. I love the pics!
Blessings, Gerri

Saw the title of this post somewhere, and had to check it out! Love the pictures. Your Mom is very pretty, so naturally she's the center of attention.

Hey Sassy: Thanks for the info about MJOrnaments. I love the mermaid charms. I'm gonna have to acquire a few to utilize in a piece of jewelery for myself. Sea Witch

Oh.My.Lord. I collect old photos of bathing beauties, and am digging those pix of your mom!!! I need to steal the ones of my mom on Muscle Beach (LA) from the 50s, but she'll kill me.....
