Last week Yann took a much-needed day off, and spent it entirely with Coralie. It may have been a first, certainly not out of lack of desire, but rather out of lack of time. They headed out in the morning to go to the beach, but not long after leaving I got a call saying change of plans, and instead I should meet the two of them with the camera down at Dolphin Discovery (our local ‘swim with the dolphin-disneyland’, that is pretty much geared toward cruise ship passengers). To say I was surprised is a serious understatement, as Yann has made many comments of skepticism regarding the captive practice of dolphins just up the road from us. I too had hoped my first face to face encounter with the majestic creatures would be on an open water sail, where they would swim along our boat for a bit, as I hear happens at sea. Alas, once Yann gets set on something, especially anything that will make his little girl smile, that’s that really! But I can’t say that there were any regrets to be had, as it was quite an amazing thing to see.
