Returning from a dolphin cruise


Destin, Florida, in the panhandle, is a beautiful resort community located along Florida's Emerald Coast, so-called because the waters often turn a brilliant emerald color. Noted for its white sand and blue skies, it has become a favorite vacation spot.

Several dolphin boats operate out of Destin, and for a fee will take you on an afternoon or sunset cruise to watch dolphins frolic in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This dolphin boat is returning to the Destin harbor from just such a cruise.

That's a happy colored boat! And dolphins would be so much fun to watch.

Great shot Jacob, it must be fun if the dolphins "play" around the boat. We have an emerald coast in France too, on the Channel!
Now, I've heard of panhandles before, I just don't know what they are, I'll have to look them up.

Do you believe me if I tell you I do dolphin cruises everywhere I go and I haven't done it in Portugal yet?... Shame on me!

@ Ciel - Thanks! The panhandle of Florida is that section out past Tallahassee heading west that on a map looks something like the handle of a pan.

I suppose Oklahoma's panhandle is most famous.

Have a great day! You, too, JM!

Dear Jacob!
Adorable "dolphins" paitings around the boat!The yellow colour is a great contrast with the ocean blue!

Thanks Jacob, what a simple explanation! I'll still have to look it up though, I want to SEE!

What fun!! I bet the dolphins don't even get a cut of the profits, though. ;)
