Trip to Atlantis – Day 2

The second day of the Atlantis trip was really the highlight.  On Wednesday the girls got to do the Dolphin Adventure thingy.  It really looked pretty cool to me.  Everyone was in a wet suit, the professionals came out with the dolphins and introduced everyone then you got to go through a whole series of tricks and swimming exercises with the dolphins one at a time.  It was Sydney’s favorite part and looked like a blast!  There were several aquariums on the grounds that they visited too and even an Atlantis ‘museum’.  Of course there was lots of time at the pool again too.  Both girls brought their mermaid tails to go swimming with at one point they were both in the pool with their tails when another little girl (5 or 6 years old) walked by and couldn’t believe that there were real mermaids in the pool.  Sydney and Ava played it up a little and it seemed to make the little girl’s day. All in all this was a great trip and I can’t wait until we can do it again so that I can go!

Dolphins like hugs too…
This was one of the ‘rides’ – you could put your hand out and the dolphin would push against it spinning you around…
