During a Christmas 2013 visit to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, my son had a one-on-one encounter with a dolphin named Hope (she will be starring in Dolphin Tale 2). Winter’s excursions and interactions fill up months in advance, so we felt extremely lucky to have an up-close opportunity with Hope.
It was an amazing experience for my little dolphin lover. After our visit, he wanted to write to Winter. His birthday is coming up, so he’s asking to interact with Winter (obviously, I need to get moving on reservations NOW). But, I wanted to share the sweet letter he wrote to his favorite dolphin.
Winter is an amazing dolphin and she holds a very special place in my son’s heart. We captured an awesome photo of Winter swimming without her prosthetic tail. She always seems to have a smile on her face (and puts one in our hearts).
