It was always something that i had dreamed doing. Really thought a wonder if this is something. I can actually do in real life. I am a new. That could slow dolphins. But i had no idea is swim with wales And then i guess. End of hospital came around when it's so time to start thinking about those sort of things and lucky the internet so it came out the you that i've finish trustful And so i got on the google search or whatever it was in those dies and actually found out that there was a little place little island of value in tongue. And you could actually swim with wales day so i guess that sort of pinpointed that pinpointed ma direction as to where i would be heading to say whether this a viable thing that i could actually make crear adults.

So i asked my youngest stop if that's something that she became to do She i guess she was really shocked because it was something that she never thought of myself doing. She's she loves.
