Weekly Photo Challenge: Transient Dolphins

Trancient - dolphin 2

During our trip to North Carolina, my husband went wreck diving. I was riding along with camera in my hands. while the guys were halfway through putting on the diving suits, a small school of dolphins swam by. They came very close to the boat. The guys reached down to the water, were almost able to touch them. My husband wanted to have a picture taken with the dolphins. Well, they had come as fast as they were gone. “Now we see them, now we don’t!” Hmm, we could see a little bit of them as they were swimming away!

No Coincidence

We went to North Carolina right after Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane Rita was lingering, but seemed to be leaving.

The hotel we booked was flooded and closed.

The owner said, “Go inland seven miles to find another room to book.”

We drove by fallen trees; flooded streets and all the windows that broke.

We kept on driving, but my husband’s mind was set on diving.

All the diving shops were closed, but some still answered calls.

“No boats are going out. The water is too murky for any diver to see!”

My husband didn’t give up, calling and left message after message.

“A group of four marine guys just stopped by, they wanted to dive!”

“Oh fantastic, I surly will join them. Tomorrow will be fine.”

Forty miles off the shore, the water was calm and as flat as the floor.

The water was clear; the wreck was a beauty to behold…….

“The air tank is running low; time is up; we have to go!”

One hundred twenty feet dive was the deepest dive in my husband’s life!

“What a thrill! Thanks to the marine guys!

It was no coincidence that they came by.

I came all the way from the west coast just to dive.

Without these marine guys, I would go home with a ‘sigh’!

Now I got my pictures, the souvenirs, and an exciting dive!”
