Dolphins Swim, Ladies Dance, I Fall Down...

Wow Three days ago I was in Iraq, and yesterday I was swimming with dolphins, how odd is my life??? But I am getting ahead of my self... I woke up impossibly early yesterday. I think at about 615 am I opened my eyes and realized I would not be getting back to sleep. I meandered around my hotel for a little bit and then met up with grams and gramps for breakfast and to hang out at their apt for a little while to kill some time. We went to Sea Life Park, and watched a dolphin show and looked at some sea turtles... (freaking huge) after that it was about time to go to my scheduled appointment and swim with the dolphins. I had a blast I managed to trip while in water (go figure.) Which is par for course... but the dolphins were amazing, as was the incredibly stupid hot female that was in my group, thank Gawd for scantily clad women!!!! The dolphins were letting us kiss them and pet them and I was heavily distracted but managed to have a great time... I got to do a belly swim (where the dolphin swims upside down and I hold onto his fins!!!) and this wake board push thing that was a lot of fun... All in all the day was a blast, Gramps took a lot of great shots and I picked up the parks pics at the gift shop... (how sad is it that the first mammal I have kissed in almost a year was a dolphin???) Sigh... By the end of our time one of the dolphins was misbehaving it was rather amusing... After the Dolphin swim Grams, Gramps and I went to dinner, and than they dropped me off at my hotel, where I picked up my rental car and met up with Dr Fish (It has been over four years since we last saw each other, how crazy is that?)and her boyfriend Jarhead. We talked for awhile and walked for a bit. And then it was near 11 and Jarhead had to be at formation early this morning so we said our goodbyes... I brought my rental car back to the hotel and took a cab to a club, where I could watch scantily clad women dance. I had my 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th alcoholic drink (Red Bull & Vodka) and around 1 am headed back to my room, I couldn’t fall asleep right away so I walked down the beach barefoot for a while... around 315 I finally went to bed and woke up at 8:35 hangover free... hooray!!! I tried to do laundry but it is next to impossible here as there is only one washing machine and dryer per floor and lucky for me the one on my floor is out of order... today I’m going to try and see a movie and maybe spend a little more money on unimportant things...talk to you soon... Aloha!
