The adverts call it magic and they're oh so right. We are completely impressed by the integrity of the marine rescue operations and respect given to beautiful ocean mammals. Thats not the magic, thats day to day operations at the PPP.
Our magic moment was when the audience had gathered by the pool after the dolphin show. Everyone had lots of chances to dip their hands over the edge of the pool and make contact with the stars of the show. The smooth silky skin and wise eyes were enchanting to be sure.
But, the magic happened after a few passes by us when the dolphin slowed his speed and we noticed a beautiful downs syndrome child was wiggling her fingers above the water. The dolphin moved under her fingers and waited for tickles. I don't know whose smile was bigger. The grinning dolphin or the girl who stroked the dolphin's smooth skin and whispered secrets only he could hear. No one in the crowd said a word until she lifted her hand and waved good bye. The dolphin lifted his head and looked back at her as he swam to the next person.
How a marine mammal could have such a connection to a land born human is a mystery, and thats why I felt magic had happened!
