Bucket List

Do you have a Bucket List?  I kind of have one.  I mean, I started one a couple of years ago and really need to sit down and update it.  One thing I do know is that #1 on my Bucket List has always remained the same.  I have ALWAYS wanted to swim with dolphins - always, long before it became a popular excursion at tropical resorts and water parks.

My obsession with swimming with dolphins started in 1981 when I got Olivia Newton-John's new album, "Physical".  I opened the inside cover and there she was.  Beautiful Olivia Newton-John swimming with Dolphins.  I was amazed and I remembering saying "I'm going to swim with Dolphins before I die."

Well, I am happy to say that 31 years later...I swam with Dolphins!  It was on a Leadership Incentive Trip that I earned as a Director with Thirty-One {yep 31} to Mexico.  On September 16th, 2012 my husband and I swam with a beautiful 31-year old {yep 31} male dolphin named, Akbal (and a couple of his friends).

It was an amazing experience and one I will never forgot.  I am happy to say that I checked off #1 on my bucket list and now I'm working towards #2...

Dare to dream,
