Dolphin Friends

A   L   O   H   A  !
Carroll Cox ( Link )
took some great shots of Dolphins
sporting at Pokai Bay here on Oahu.
Look how close this spinner is
to people and the shore.

" The happiness of the bee 
and the dolphin 
is to exist.
 For man it is to know
 that and to wonder at it. "

Jacques Yves Cousteau 

" When I see a dolphin,
 I know 
it's just as smart 
as I am. "

Don Van Vliet

The voice of the dolphin 
in air is like 
that of the human, 
in that they can pronounce 
vowels, and combinations 
of vowels." 


" The voice of the dolphin in air 
is like that of the human,
 in that they can
 pronounce vowels, 
and combinations of vowels." 


" Our top story tonight:
 Famous TV dolphin flipper
 was arrested today 
on prostitution ring charges. 
He allegedly was seen
 transporting two 16 year olds
 across state lines 
for immoral porpoises. "

I believe that dolphins are much smarter than we are. And certainly more beautiful.

Cool how close the dolphins are to the folks. I want to be a dolphin in my next life; maybe I was in the previous! We had an excellent time at Sea Life Park on northern Oahu with the dolphin swim. They had the Pacific ones vs the Atlantic ones. They've got little belly buttons: yep, they're mammals! Dolphie DrumMajor


I love seeing these spinner dolphins! I don't think I've seen them that close to shore ever! That Colin Mochrie quote is fabulous, haha (as many of his lines are:).

Dolphins are fascinating! Adorable and cute. Though one sees the trained ones, in the wild these are just as wild! Nicely Cloudia!
